    1. Ano ba talaga yung reson ng pagkawala yun ang ilagay mo pwede ka pa naman pagawa ng police report eh. Kapag meron ka na nung dalawa na yan punta ka ng DFA Aseana para maka pag file ng lost passport.

    1. Ngayon nyo lang nakita na mali yung year of birth mo sa passport? For renewal na yan. mag set ka ng appointment at magdala ka ng NSO B.C mo at mga I.D na mag papakita ng tamang birth date mo.

  17. Hello po.
