Should I Still Bring my PSA Birth Certificate for Passport Application or Renewal?

9 Sept 20

The answers are both yes and no.

The DFA recently announced that the PSA birth certificate is no longer a requirement when getting your passport renewed.  While this is true for passport renewal transactions, it does not apply to other cases of passport transactions with the DFA.

The PSA birth certificate remains to be a major requirement for all other passport transactions; below is the list of other transactions with the DFA this is still a requirement:

  1. First-time passport applications.
  2. When having a damaged or mutilated passport replaced.
  3. Applicants that are included in the DFA watchlist.
  4. Renewal of the brown and green old Philippine passports that has no complete middle name of the owner.
  5. Changes in personal information such as for married women or if changing from married name to maiden name.

Be properly guided, friends!
