To avoid encountering problems on your passport application appointment date, make sure you have the correct and complete set of requirements when you appear at the DFA.  Remember, if you are renewing a maroon passport, you no longer need to bring a copy of your PSA birth certificate, unless you are going to use this as proof of filiation (parentage) for your (minor) child’s passport renewal.

  1. Personally appear at the DFA Consular Office where you set your passport application appointment.
  2. Bring your printed appointment packet that was sent to your email after you made your ePayment:
  • Checklist with schedule;
  • Application form with a barcode, reference number, and e-receipt number;
  • Two copies of the e-receipt.
  1. Birth and/or Marriage Certificate
  • Bring the original copies.
  • The DFA only accepts authenticated copies printed on NSO or PSA on the yellow Security Paper.  Again, the PSA Birth Certificate is NO LONGER required for the renewal of the maroon passport.
  1. One valid ID and its photocopy. The DFA accepts ANY ONE of the following:
  • Driver’s License
  • Student Permit (card format)
  • PRC ID
  • Voter’s ID/Voter’s Certificate
  • PNP Firearms License
  • Senior Citizen ID
  • School ID (valid and enrolled)
  • Valid ePassport
  • Residence Card
