After finishing the steps for your passport application at DFA ASEANA, you now have the option of returning on the release date or have the new passport delivered to your address.

DFA passport delivery is an option to optimize your passport application experience. Pag nag padeliver ka na lang, you benefit from having to make a return trip to get your passport on the scheduled release date, tipid sa pamasahe.

They say you can get your new epassport within a day or two from the scheduled date of release delivered right to your doorstep. This can translate to savings on time, travel expenses and other potential hassles. Passport delivery is located at the second floor of the DFA ASEANA Building.

  18. hi . when i get a passport there in dfa pampanga. i choose to use their accredited courier. it’s been 2 days, and i don’t receive it yet . How would i know if it is being process ? or is it a dfa delayed ? or the courier service , LBC ?

    1. You mean from the date of release of your passport it’s been 2 days delayed? The receipt that you have does it has a contact number where you can follow up the status of your passport? There is a delay in the production of passport in the main office resulting to late release of passports.

  19. possible po ba na bigay skin ng DFA ang passport ko kahit for delivery ang passport ko kailangan ko po kasi makuha may interview po kasi ako ng june 20 2014 s embassy

    looking forward for ur reply and thank u very much:)

    1. First off. call the releasing section of DFA in Lipa.
      If you can’t contact them, mas maganda na puntahan mo na sa releasing section para malaman mo ang tunay na status. Sobrang tagal na yan

  39. I had my passport processed for express processing and delivery last Dec 11. I waited 11 days for the passport to appear on LBC’s tracking system (Dec 26). On the 27th it said it was “out for delivery” but I didn’t receive it. 28th was the same. And today (29th) I saw they changed the logs of the tracking number and said that they could not deliver the passport because of incomplete address on the 27th and 28th. So I called up LBC and they verified that they had the correct address and they needed to escalate it to god knows where. They said that the delivery man may have possibly missed our home and I was like, “but I’ve been using LBC before and I they didn’t have any problems with the address!” To cut the long story short, they had the correct address all along but they still could not deliver it and will try on the 31st.

    Do you know if I could just claim the passport in Megamall (the place where I applied) with just the LBC receipt?

  40. follow up ko lng po ung passport ko ngaun po ang release dec18 hndi p po nddeliver kylangang kylangan ko n po kc un ehh,

  41. My sons passport and mine were suppossed to be delivered last Dec 6. Only mine arrived and had to deal with LBC as tracking number in my receipt was not readable. Lesson learned: Check the print out and ask where the tracking number is.

    Now after 2 days, LBC confirms its not yet with them. Its frustrating that I paid premium 7 days only to not get the passport. Based on the info here, I need to go to DFA ASEANA now to get it. I tried calling the hotline and true enough, no ones does answer. For the past 2 mornings I start calling by 7:58 am. By 8:15am its still the same message that they are open from 8 to 5 blah blah By 8:19 I call then still the same, 8:20 all operators are now busy. WTF This happened 2 days in a row and as of this time of typing, still have DFA landline ringing.

    Thanks for the info here, definitely have to spend some time at DFA ASEANA to get my sons passport.

  42. good day.! im planning to apply for passport at iloilo city branch.. do i need an appointment or walk-in na lng po..? thankz..

  43. My passport delivery has been delayed for two days. I’ve been trying to call the courier of DFA Aseana but the line (846-5889) is always busy. Any suggestions? Thanks! X

  44. ke, i put my purpose of travel on my app. form into “work” istead of “tour”. and its too late for me to realize my mistake. Now i have my passport, but my purpose is wrong. Do you know a legal way to change my purpose on my passport? help me please…. :(( thanks. I’m so problematic!!! huhuhu :..((

  45. .hi.,tanong q lng po..ng-apply po aq ng renewal last july 24.,ang releasing date po ng passport q is aug.14..tanong q lng po.,possible kaya na ipa-rush q pa xa mg-add nlng po ng fee or dna tlga pwede?..thanks

    1. Medyo mahirap kasi bayad na at naka pila na sa processign ang passport mo.
      Pwede mo subukan, bumalik sa DFA dala ang resibo at mag dagdag ng bayad. Pero baka lang hindi na pumayag.

  46. nabasa ko mga message ng iba at pareho rin sa concern ko, sabay kami nag apply ng passport ng 2 yr old son ko, july 23 ang release. July 20 nagtxt ang tel PPT LBC, July 21 na receive ko ang passport ko, pero wala yung sa anak ko, ang sabi nung nag deliver baka nag kaiba ng batch “daw” . hanggang ngayong wala parin ang passport ng anak ko. posible kaya nagkaroon ng problema ang aplication ng anak ko? kasi na delay ang picture nya dahil nag tantrums sya ng oras na yun at hindi masyadong focus ang shot sa kanya, pero kita naman ang dalwang tenga nya. worried lang ako, kasi malaking abala sa trabaho ko at pamasahe kung luluwas pa ako, at kung uulitin ang application ng anak ko.

    1. Hintayin mo muna ng isang linggo. Baka nga na delay lang ang release. Kung wala pa after a week, mas maganda na puntahan mo na sa DFA sa releasing section para malaman kung may problem nga sa picture.

  47. wag na kayong magpadeliver ng passport thru LBC. sobrang delay sila sa pagdeliver. almost one week na ako naghihintay, pina rush processing ko na yung passport ko para within 7 working days, nasa akin na ang passport ko. pero in the end, maghihintay pa ako ng almost 1 week para sa delay ng buwkanang inang LBC yan. kaya beware, wag nyong piliin ang LBC sa pagpadeliver ng passport, kung ayaw nyong mabuwiset sa paghihintay ng passport nyo!!!

  48. Pag ba almost a year pa bago mag expired puede na bang i renew ang passport. para kasi sa abroad for work ng hindi na sa abroad mag renew kasi doon aabutin ng expiration? Kung puede magrenew anong mangyayari sa passport ko na hindi pa naman expire? bubutasan na ba kaagad sa pagaaply pa lang o pag na receceive ko na ang bagong passport? ang balak ko kasi ipapadeliver na lang? puede pa bang gamitin passport ko hanggat di pa dumadating ang new passport? baka kasi madelay ng matagal? salamat po.

  49. Hello. Gudam! July 5 ang release ng passport ko… pinadeliver ko thru LBC pero upto now wal a pa rin po. tinawagan ko po ang lbc sabi negative pa daw sa kanila… ano po kaya dapat gawin???

      1. mastercitizen, nareceive ko na po ang passport ko kahapon. sabi ng lbc monday night lang daw nila narelease. bakit ganun? hindi saktong date na binigay ng dfa. paano pala kung ako mismo ang pumick up eh di walang ibibigay ang dfa. maraming salamat po sa tulong….

      2. Good at nakuha mo na. Kung ikaw ang dumating doon, maaari kang mag demand pero alam mo naman ang gobyerno, puro pangako, madalas…. πŸ™‚

      3. tinawagan ko muna ang dfa sabi ng operator kailangan ko daw maretrieve yung original receipt kung gusto ko na ako ang kukuha ng passport, kaya tinawagan ko ang lbc fortunately nakuha na daw nila nung monday night kaya hintayion ko daw ng tuesday. ayun dumating na. thank you so much sa mga response mo….

  50. hi master,
    sa monday po yung appointment ko July 9 8am..ask ko lang po kung ok lang ba na yung sa application form ko eh may onting mali sa address ko? kasi po sa website kinumpleto ko po yung address ko dun sa “COMPLETE ADDRESS” (linagay ko pati city/province) then sa baba ng complete address meron nmang “CITY” and “PROVINCE”..so naglagay din po ako dun..then after po nun at natapos ko na lahat pagkaprint ko napansin ko na dumoble ung address ko.. naging bacoor cavite, bacoor cavite cavite ung last part ng addres ko.. palagay nyo po ba ok lang yun?

  51. hello po master, ask kolang po about sa passport ko nag apply po me nung june 20 pina express and deliver ko,,june 29 po ang releasing sabe mariricv ko dw po i2 ng june 30,,, mag totourist po kc kami pina rush nadin po ung book ko khit wala po yung passport ko sa july 1 na po un ,,, sure naman puba nila kya madeliver yung passport sa june 30? ask kolang nga po kung on tym nga sila magdeliver kc kabado din po ako june30 po deliver then july 1 po ang flight namin….

    1. Medyo alanganin lang ang timing, walang space para sa pagkakamali. Sana hindi mo na lang pinadeliver at binalikan mo ng June 29 para sigurado ka na alam mo ang status.

      Hopefully, kung hindi delayed ang releases, kakayanin naman ng courier yan.

  52. Pwede ko bang makuha yung passport ko ng AM kahit PM nakalagay on releasing date. Ipit lang kasi ako sa Visa interview ko natapat ng same date morning pa ng 9AM.

  53. Tinawagan ko yung 2Go ang sabi wala pa raw sa kanila yung passport kaya di pa nadedeliver. Grabe! nung may pag ang appointment ng brother ko sa dfa..

  54. haller,,, almost 3 days ng delay an passport ng nephew q, badly needed sya pnsched nmen sya sa courier at tell ppt an ntpat sa kanya, is it possible n pik-apin nlan sya sa dfa if hindi p den mdeliver tom.? mrerefund b nmen un delivery fee of 120.00?

    1. Sadly walang refund yang mga yan. Pwede mo hintayin muna ng hanggang one week. Baka delayed ang release. If you can’t wait that long, you can try going to DFA releasing section. Problema baka in transit na (for delivery) when you go there.

      If wala pa after a week, puntahan mo na regardless.

  55. master yung sis ko kakakuha lang ng passport last year so expiration is 2016 pa. ang purpose of travel ay tour eh ngayon nagkaroon sya opportunity to work abroad. need pa ba palitan yung purpose ng from tour to work or ok lang ba yun? ano ba dapat gawin? sayang kasi kakakuha lang nya last year. thank you.

  56. hello, myself together with my daughter applied for renewal (myself) and new (daughter) last may 08, 2012. As per receipt, it will be release by May 17, but due that i chose to be delivered (RUSH), it will be received by May 18, 2012.
    My daughter’s passport was delivered on time, but mine was not. Until now i’ll keep on follow up sa LBC (tracking number), they said that there are no docs (passport) forwarded yet by DFA. I called some customer rep (DFA HOTLINE), and they advised na meron DAW DELAY sa printing sa BSP, almost 1 week ng delay ang passport ko and i can’t start to process my contract not unless i have my passport with me, pakiadvise naman what to do. tks.

    1. Aice, pinaka magandang advise ko is for you to go to the DFA releasing section and inquire personally about your passport. Get an explanation face to face since sobrang delayed na naman yan. I’m sure if you insist, may positive na mangyayari sa demand mo to get your delayed passport πŸ™‚

      1. ah, there was no specific time, pero may “am” in red ink na nakasulat, actually, im supposed to claim this last april 19, but due to unscheduled appointments di ako nakabalik agad dito sa manila.. i asked someone from dfa before, ang sabi po sa akin, i can still claim my passport within 6 months, is this true? thank you po ^_^

      2. Yes. Claim it agad para nandoon pa rin sa DFA ang passport mo. After a month or so kasi nililipat na ng storage ang unclaimed passports. You can claim it anytime anyday.

  57. Hi, kumuha ako ng passport last may10, 2012 DFA manila.. pina express ko at pina delivery sa LBC.. Sabi release daw ng passport ko is may 22.. So mga kelan ko pa kaya mare receive yung passport ko??super lapit lapit Lang ako dito Lang ako sa Pasay area..

  58. I have applied the renewal of my passport through DFA-Cagayan de Oro last May 9, 2012 and was scheduled for release as express processing on May 23, 2012 . Today, is my 3rd day of my follow-up of the status, since i presumed it would take 7 to 10 days from the date of my application will be the time of released. Please, so much delays means the loss of every opportunity to get employed. By this time my employer may consider or could think of cancelling out our application. What should I do? please help!

    1. If the date of release in your receipt is May 23, 2012, then you can safely claim your passport at the DFA by May 24. Have you done this and have the DFA said that your passport is not available yet? Have you gone there personally or inquired by phone? Insist on your right at the releasing section.

  59. Just want to follow up my passport date released last May 11, I’ve waited the delivery through 2 Go delivery system started last May 12 until now. What happened?

    1. Release is May 11….so mga 5 days delayed na yan. Kung wala pa rin by today, mas maganda na puntahan mo na sa DFA releasing section para malaman mo agad ang reason for delay.

  60. Hi po, ask ko po sana ilang days po pwede kunin ang passport kung hndi po nakuha ng exact date of release? thanks po

  61. nag apply ako ng passport renewal noon pang april 26. nagbayad ako ng P1200 para express daw. then nagbayad uli ako ng P120 for delivery. sabi nila it will takes only 1 to 2 days after the releasing date. pero hanggang ngayon May 8 na wala pa rin passport ko. hindi naman kalayuan ang place ko….cavite lang. parang mas ok pa na di ko na lang pinadeliver.

  62. Hello po.yung passport po kasi ng panganay ko pinadeliver ko n lang po s LBC mismo ng DFA.sabi po nung april,19.2012 ang releasae.pero until now po e wala pa rin pero ung passport ko po at ng bunso ko ay dumating na pero ung s panganay ko,wala pa.e sabay-sabay ko po yun inayos,lahat po kming tatlo e april 19,2012 ang release.tinatawagan ko nman po ung 02-556-0000 pero wala pong sumasagot..taga cabanatuan po kami at niluwas lang po namin yun para ayusin,pero until now wala po akong balita kung bakit nadelay ung s isa kong anak n 14 yrs old smantalang ung smin ng bunso ko ay dumating at naideliver n po.ano na po kayang nangyayari?dapat ko po bang lumuwas?saan at pano po ang hakbang n dapat kong gawin?salamat po!

    1. Donna, minsan may delay talaga. Hintayin mo muna hanggang Thursday this week. I’m sure nahiwalay lang ng batch yung sa anak mo kumpara sa naunang mga passports nyo. πŸ™‚ Pagwala pa ng Thurs, saka ka magdecide lumuwas, pero lumuwas ka ng Monday April 30 para mahaba yung waiting period mo sa delivery. Hindi ka naman ata nagmamadali sa pagkuha ng passport ng anak mo. πŸ™‚

    1. Sana nakuha mo na ngayon. Kung wala pa rin ito at nagmamadali ka, mas maganda na puntahan mo sa DFA sa Wednesday o kahit bukas (Tuesday) para maitanong ng personal sa releasing section kung ano ang status nito.

  63. i am Glennelie E. Marcos, The releasing date for my passport was on march 28.. i chose to pay the express counting after 7 days because i need it as soon as possible but why is it until now..its already april 18 almost a month of waiting. I’ve been to LBC here in my place but still its negative. they told me once its not listed on their computer meaning my passport is still at your hand. And please dont suggest to me to go at dfa pasay because it cost to much to me.. The time i went their was to pick up my mom so i just took the opportunity. If it stll my passport was not release from dfa since i give to your office the authorization to have my passport may you please approach the dfa and kindly let me know whats the problem.. Please reply to me as soon as possible…

    1. Glen, I’m sorry pero blogger ako ang I dont work for the DFA. If the delay is that long, then most probably may problem ang passport mo. Kasi hindi naman aabot yan ng ganyan katagal ma release kung walang problem. Your best option for now is to call DFA and connect to releasing section. Ur next best option is to wait. The 3rd best option is to go to DFA and inquire personally para malaman mo kung may kailangan pa sila from you to process the passport or why is it delayed for so long.

  64. gud am po..kumuha po kami ng passport ng mother ko last march 01, 2012 ang release po march 22, 2012 and then pina deliver ko na lang po by a lbc ang delivery date march 23, 2012 pra di na po ako umaabsent sa work ko kaya pina deliver ko n lang po.kaya nga lang po ang nangyari ung passport ko lang po ang dumting ng march 23 ung sa mother ko wala po hanggang ngaun.on the day n dumating ung passport ko tumawag po ako agad sa lbc i ask them kung bakit wala ung passport ng mother ko ang sabi ng operator wala pa daw sa kanila kaya by saturday or monday ide2liver pero wala naman po dumating na passport ng mother ko.kaya tinawagan ko po uli ang lbc ng tuesday kc wala pa rin po dumating na passport ng monday ang sabi ng operator wala p rin po sa kanila ung passport tumawag po daw ako sa dfa ang sabi naman po ng oprator ng dfa tumawag ako sa hotline na 5560000 pero wala naman po sumasagot from morning to afternoon puro busy po eh kailangan na po kc ung passport ng mother ko before this end of march. sino po ba ang may problema ang dfa po ba o ang lbc kung bakit wala pa ung passport ng mother ko..sana po matulungan nyo po ako agad..salamat po..

    1. Christy, mas sigurado kung pupunta ka ng DFA para itanong sa releasing section dahil baka may issue pa na dapat ayusin. Either delayed lang yan or may issue nga. Kung gusto mo ng mabilis na sagot, the best bet is to go there and check it out yourself

  68. hi mastercitizen

    ask ko lang. paano po ako makakakuha ng appointment kung sa RCO po? kasi po ang layo ng main branch sa lugar ko eh. dito po ako isabela eh balak ko sa RCO tuguegarao. magpaparenew po sana ko ng passport. nag set na ako ng appointment via sa DFA site mismo http://www.passport.com.ph/apply/start may reference number na rin po ako schedule ko po feb 3 11 am po. pwede po ba na instead sa main branch po ako eh sa tuguegarao nalang po.

    nagpatanong na po ako kung paano mag renew eh sabi ng napagtanungan ko mismo sa office ng sa tuguegarao mag apply daw ako via online eh dito ako sa webiste na ito http://www.passport.com.ph nag apply. wala naman silang sariling website para mag pa schedule ako pwede po ba ito?

    maraming salamat po .

    sana po masagot niyo ang aking katanungan.

    1. Dhadhda, sa main lang ang appiontment. Ang RCO either walk in or may sarili silang sched na binibigay. Either may website sila (malabo) or walk-in ka to apply or get your appointment sched with them. Yung appointment sched mo para sa main yan sa DFA ASEANA

  69. Dear Mastercitizen,
    I applied a passport last 13th of this month, supposedly kahapon po ang deliver ng LBC and sad to say hindi po dumating, i tried to call the numbers that written on the reciept its not accesible, and when its ringing nobody answer. I thought na mas madali, save money and time kaya pinadeliver ko ang passport through courier, kasi kailangan ko na po ang aking passport to process my papers for a visa application. Ano po ba ang dapat gawin since hindi naman makontak ang DFAMPC and LBC courier. Please need your urgent reply..
    Thanks and more power.
    Jolly

    1. Jolly, wait for it until Monday. Baka na delay lang ng konti sa release or sa pag deliver. If after Monday wala pa rin, mas maganda na puntahan mo sa Tuesday sa DFA and go to the courier para ma insist mo na ibigay sa iyo.

  70. good afternoon po, ask ko lang po kc ang release ng passport ko is december 17, for pick up po sana kaya lng di ko po makukuha because of important matter, ok lng b n makuha ko ung passport ko s ibang araw or pwede ko p po bang ipadeliver skin? pls reply, thank u po

  71. hi po ilang days po ba pag rush ung passport im from bacarra po kc san po kayo sa la union matatagpuan salaat po

  72. question po kasi yung passport ko dec 14 pa po release pero ininform sakin na dec 5 dapat makuha ko passport ko para makapag apply para sa visa magrerepresent po kasi ng country sa taiwan by dec 16-18 so ano po pwede ko gawin para mapabilis yung release ng passport ko? salamat

  73. Question paano kung yung passport ko is lalabas pa sa december 14 pero kelangan ko siya makuha agad by dec 5 para makapag apply ng visa magrerepresent kasi ako ng country abroad for upcoming tournament ano ba dapat kong gawin?

  74. itanong kolang po sana kc kumuha ako passport ng anak.bale ang release po ay nov,28 for delivery po..deliver po b ngaun un?ngaun araw or kailangan ko pang ako ang kukuha nlng?tnx po

    1. Marianinah, yes ang appointment online is for DFA Manila. However, I’m not sure if Pampanga employs their own appointment scheduling. If so, pagdating mo dun, they will either accept you on that day or issue an appointment slip to you for you to return on a scheduled date.

  75. hello po, this is Joshua Juanitez. tanong ko lang po kung saan ko pa pweding ifollow up yung passport ko, kasi po dapat nung october 17 pa ang schedule ng deliver pero hanggang ngaun ay wala pa 1month ko na pong hinihintay. kinokontak ko rin po yung follow up number na nasa delivery reciept ko pero puro not activated dw po ung mga number na yon. may contak number naman po ako dun pero di po nila ako kinokontak.

    badly need your reply on this matter please..

    1. JM, dapat puntahan mo na yan personally. Sa DF ASEANA ba? Go there show the guard your delivery receipt and go to the courier area para mag follow up. Dapat malaman mo ang status. YOu can also check status by going to the Releasing section and checking ur name and passport.

  76. I just wanna ask, November 9,2011 kse ung pick up date ng passport ko and hndi pa ako nkakapunta s dfa since I’m busy, okay lang ba kung kahit kailan pwde ko sya kunin s dfa?

  77. MasterCitizen,

    I did apply for the mobile passport system in Makati City just last saturday (12 Nov). The following Monday (14 Nov), I was informed that I will be attending a seminar in Bangladesh, thus, having the need to expedite the release of my passport. Working for a government office, I did send a letter to Asec Ledda and Mr. Duke Villanueva (Passport Division) stating the reasons for such request, with the invitation letters and the programme as the attachments, having one of our bosses as the signatory.

    What’s the assurance that my passport will be released ASAP? I will have to go through the visa processing, which will entail 3 days the least. The seminar is on 24-30 November, and with the time constraints, I am quite worried if I could make it on time. The organizers have already purchased my airfare ticket, and they’re just asking for a scanned copy of my passport.

    Please advise. Thanks!

      1. MasterCitizen,

        I did send the letter personally, but I was not able to talk to the director. I did call their office this morning, and what they’re saying is they’ll just contact me if there is already progress on my request.

        I had plans of calling Mr Villanueva over the phone, but, with his busy schedule, I don’t think it’s feasible. Would you suggest me setting an appointment with him to discuss this personally instead? Thanks!

      2. Try getting an endorsement letter from your boss and go to the DFA again. Indicate the dates that you need to process this and wait until you get a result on the same day itself. Dapat you insist that they give an answer now dahil next week na ang lakad mo. If they say hindi kaya dapat sabihin na nila sayo na hindi nila kaya. Personally being there gives you a better chance than waiting for them to call you. Puntahan mo ulit.

  78. hello po, tanung ko lng po,
    upon releasing na po yong passport ko, tapos yung official receipt ko po nawawala. PAAno po yun, makukuha ko po ba ang passport ko which is scheduled tomorrow upon releasing?

    badly need your reply on this matter please..

  79. gud am po^^ nag-renew ako ng passport last oct 22, and the release date should be nov 29. since pina-deliver ko, nov 10 pa makukuha. pero until now wala pa po. i tracked my passport and i got a message from the dfa saying that my passport is on “pending status”..
    what should i do?

  80. good day master,
    sabay po kami nagparenew ng kapatid ko ng passport same date po, pinadeliver po namin via DHL isang address lang po kami, pero ung sa kapatid ko pa lang po ung dumating kanina wala pa ung sa kin eh sabay lang din po ang releasing date namin nun… ang delivery dapat po ba nun sabay din po ba? ano po kaya problema?
    thanks po.

  81. hi master! ask ko lang po kasi ung brother ko need po ng passport urgent as in urgent but wala po siya any valid id. by next month na po ung alis nya for work. biglaan po ih. paano po ba un, ano po ba maganda gawin. out of school na rin po siya, may driver’s license but expired na po kapag naman po irerenew ibabalik lang po daw as student license eh tatanggapin po ba un sa dfa? wala pa din po siya voter’s as per comelec batch 2007 eh wala pa po daw released na ids. kapag naman po kumuha kami ng ibang id it will take month/s bago marelease.. ung postal naman po di inaaccept sa dfa.. master sana po mabigyan nyo kami ng advice regarding this. ano pa po ang pwede namin gawin.. thank you =(

  82. Master gud day, the release date of my passport dapat nong October 17, 2011 pa. I used the tracking system of passport ng DFA then ang reply eh nasa pending section pa daw, totoo ba yon? eh bat napending eh good as paid na yong delivery? Please help i need my passport by next week po eh. salamat po

    1. Margie, if pending section ibig sabihin may problem sa mga details. Kailangan mo puntahan ito personally sa passport division director’s office to find out what they need to confirm.

  83. master tanong ko alng what if yung passport release is September 21… kaso ang akala ko October 21. regular lang yun for pickup. kung hindi ko ba mapipickup within a month eh itatapon nila un? pwede bang pickupin ung passport every saturday? salamat!

  84. Master ask ko lang po.. Nag-apply po ako ng passport sa Cagayan de Oro release date ko po dun October 25,2011. Master nasa Manila po ako ngayon applying for abroad. Natanggap napo ako ng isang employer for UAE. Ang agency ko po ay binigyan na po ako ng proof of urgency, kailangan na po ang passport ko para sa Visa. Galing narin po ako sa DFA sabi nila naipadala na nila sa Cagayan de Oro ang Passport ko. Ang mother ko po nasa Cagayan de Oro, ano po ba ang mga requirements para para makuha ng mother ko ang passport ko doon earlier? ok po ba na ipadala ko doon sa mother ko ang DFA Receipt ko, Authorization letter, Valid I.D. ko at proof of urgency? tumawag po ako sa hotline nang DFA pero wala pala sila weekends..

  85. @mastercitizen.. ask ko lang po,,,, pwede ko po bang gawing EXPRESS process yung REGULAR process na inapply ko po?and magdadagdag nalang ng extra charge para maging EXPRESS? need ko lang po kai talaga..urgent…

    1. Zanbince, hindi na mapapalitan yung regular processing na kinuha mo dahil final na yun when you chose. Kung urgent talaga, try mo magpunta sa Passport Director’s office sa DFA and request for it, kailangan magpakita ka ng proof of urgency. Subject to review approval nga lang yan

  86. hi! i just would like to ask kung bakit hindi pa dumadating yung passport ko? supposedly this 27th of september sya iddeliver pero wala pa. kanino po ako pwede kumontak for my concern? thanks!

  87. Good day po MasterCitizen, Paano po ba mapadali yung release ng passport ng asawa ko, sabi ng DFA cebu, we attached letter of request and request from employer and job offer niya po,available na daw po ang passport, clearance from manila nalang daw po ang kulang, gaano po ba katagal yung clearance? kailangan napo kasi para sa visa nya, i hope you can help us thanks..

    1. CIndy, bakit daw may clearance from Manila? Baka ang ibig nila sabihin, hinihintay na lang ipadala from Manila. Kelan ba ang release date na naka lagay sa resibo ninyo, most of the time sinusunod ito unless nga may special request kayo, kaya lang maghihintay tayo ng abiso ng Manila office kung nakita nga nila ito at na aprove. Pero kung pasok naman ang release date sa paglalakad ninyo ng papeles, at wala namang problema ang applciation ni mister, don’t worry, dadating yan sa release date. Let’s hope na mas maaga nila magawa. Wala na kasi ibang paraan para mapabilis yan aside sa nagawa na ninyo πŸ™‚

      1. Hello Master, Nasa kanila na daw po yung passport, everytime mag folow-up ako , ang sinasabi nila, clearance from manila nalang daw po ang kulang to have it released early… nag email na po kami ng request, inia attached din po namin dun sa application ang mga request from employer at ng asawa ko, pati job offer po, ewan ko kung how long will they be able to send clearance to cebu to have it early released…nakaka frustrate na po 😦

  88. Pano po pag gusto ko na po ipa-rush pero ang linagay ko po sa online registration ay regular lang, next week pa naman po appointment ko, pwede pa po ba mabago yon para ipa-rush? Thanks po.

  89. hello po.Can i ask for advise.I renew my passport sa cebu but then na hold due to frequent renewal po.ano po dapat gawin para marelease agad yon.Kc sabi 3 months pa daw intayin clerance from manila.urgent po sana.pls advise.Thank u po

  90. hello po.Can i ask for advise.I renew my passport sa cebu but then na hold due to frequent renewal po.ano po dapat gawin para marelease agad yon.Kc sabi 3 months pa daw intayin clerance from manila.urgent po sana.pls advise

  91. what is the procedure if incorrect ang name na printed sa passport but yung documents submitted are correct?fault eto ng DFA. ano po ang gagawin.

      1. hello po uli c noemie po uli ang endrsement nga po eh ung mga documents ko gya ng cv ang sabo po nya last tym d ako ngfillup mg endorsement form kya walng nforward na docs sa embassy gya ng cv ko halimbawa ang sabi nya dpt mgbyad ng 4000 pra sa endorsement form na un pra ung la ofis ang mgpadala ng request invitation sa us embassy ang tanung ko po kung kaiangan tlaga mgbayad ng endoesement form gling dfa o authorized ang ofis nila na kumuha ng endresment form pra mkagapply ako sa co nila pra mkakuha ako ng request invitation pra mkatrabaho sa us thanks p[o uli sa reply more power

      2. Noemie, sila naman ang nagrerecruit sayo di ba. Malamang tama naman yan. Kasama na kaya sa endorsement yung NSO certificates at school records mo na naka red ribbon (yun ang processed forms from DFA). Kung kasama, mas ok.

  92. hi MC, september 8 2011 po release ng passport ko. delivery service po WWWExpress (DHL), ilang days po kaya bago dumating sa house ko ang passport ko? thanks and godbless!

  93. gud day MC, tanong ko lng, me passport ako, 2013 p ung xpiration, d ko p nga nggmit e. kaso nsultn ng pamangkin kong mliliit ung mga gtnang pages, mggmit ko p kli 2? o mgrerenew nko? highliter ung pnanulat nla.

  94. gud day MC, tanong ko lng, me passport ako, 2013 p ung xpiration, d ko p nga nggmit e. kaso nsultn ng pamangkin kong mliliit ung mga gtnang pages, mggmit ko p kli 2? o mgrerenew nko?

    1. Malisbo, since nasulatan, that will be considered a mutilated passport. Para hassle free and paggamit, mas maganda kung kumuha ka na lang ng bago. Mapalit na rin naman ang isang taon na expiration mo. Saka hindi ka nagmamadali so mas maganda yan. Anong kulay ba passport mo? E-passport na ba yan? Bago na ang passport, baka kailangan mo na rin ng bagong version.

      1. machine readable. kulay brown. kaso kelangan ko kc pg ngpmedical me, klngan ng immigation, pero e2 din un bngy ko s knila nuon.

  95. hello mc…from cebu here. releasing date for my passport is sept 16, is there any chance that my passport will be available earlier that the indicated releasing date? thanks

  96. Master, from Cebu here…so far meron nabang nakakuha ng passport nila na September 2011 ‘yong releasing na walang delay? sana naman may ibang magfeedback yong success experience nila pagkuha ng passport. Releasing kasi nung sakin ay September 7. Badly needing it to get my visa. I deeply hope and pray na marelease nila on the day indicated on the receipt, since they say the operation is back to normal last June 29. Thank you for your informative blog.

  97. hi.mc ask ko lng po sure na po kya na marelease yong pass4rt ko ng sept,12 kc po my fligth na me ng sept,13…pano lo p malalaman n sure na talga yon.tnsx

  98. malapit ko nang makuha ung passport ku sept.8,2011 sana meron na agad..nagtataka ako baka matagal rin gaya ng mga diff. comments na nabasa kuh.. LBC ko ipinada from Vigan ako.and nag apply aku sa DFA sa la Union SAn Fernando.MasterCitizen CAn u give me clues or update.tnx πŸ™‚ hope you reply…

    1. Arvi, sometimes may delay kasi may problem sa production, pero kung tama ang balita na normal na daw ang operations ng DFA, I’m pretty sure 90% of the time on sched na ang releases and hopefully ang delivery. πŸ™‚

  99. hi i applied a family appointment for passport last aug.9 and the releasing date that dfa gave me is on aug.23 and this is for pick up. Do you think that pick up is a better option than delivery? and when the dfa gave a releasing date for pick up, is it really sure that i can get my passport on that said date? thank you very much

    1. Jec, since you already chose the pick up date of Aug 23, then by all means go and pick up your passport on the mentioned date. You can’t opt for delivery by now so there is no reason to compare. Hopefully, DFA can honor its commitment on the mentioned date.

    1. Nevs, normally, when DFa says this is the release date, they are obliged to honor it. If you want to make sure, give it a week after the release date kung hindi ka naman nagmamadali.

  100. were trying to pick-up our passport on aug.22,2011,in tuguegarao, pero iniisip ko kung papadeliver na lang sana namin,panu po un?

    1. SInce you opted for pick up, you have to go there yourself and claim your passport. Ito lang po ang option nya sa ngayon. Maliban na lamang po kung babalik kaya sa DFA at ibibigay ang reciept nyo at mag avail ng delivery service. Kaso balik balik ka naman pag ganun.

  101. panu po papadeliver ung passport pag hindi naman po kami ngbayad ng delivery fee doon sa dfa tuguegarao?

    1. Jammy, most of the time relative lang pwede, yung parents or kapatid lang. You can try if your friend doesn’t have the time. Kung hindi pwede, then your friend should make time. Pero kung nagmamadali yung friend mo, mas sure kung personal na siya na ang kumuha.

  102. Hi, we’ve been waiting so long for my cousin’s passport, the release date was on july 25, 2011 but until now we haven’t received it yet… and we paid it for 1,200 (overtime). Now, I’ve been trying to contact the given contact numbers or DFA manila, but we couldn’t reach them. We’re supposed to fly after we receive the passport (but only for TOUR, idk if DFA will hear us if it’s only for tour) but we wanted to visit our family abroad and come home before our classes starts this october. Please help. I would be very glad to hear a response from you. Thank you.

    1. Jendenise, if it is delayed for that long a time, your best option is to go personally to the DFA releasing section and inquire (actually ask forcefully) for your passport release. If you had it delivered via courier, have a courier representative go down to you at the releasing area and find your passport or at least give you outright information. When you go to the DFA, just tell the guard that you are going to the releasing section.

  103. Good PM Master. July 15 pa po dapat na-deliver yung passport ko but sadly hanggang ngayon wala pa din. I’ve tried their online passport tracking system and lagi nilang reply is that my passport has already been processed and I should wait for the delivery na lang. Ang tanong hanggang kailan? What do you think I should do? Thanks

    1. Fatima, you should go to DFA na (I’m assuming that you applied at ASEANA). Go to the releasing section, show your delivery receipt and inquire about your passport. If you are there, chances are they would have an explanation for you or your courier would have to explain it directly to you. That is already too much of a time for you to wait.

  104. good pm master, alomost two months na po wala pa rin po ung passport ko.. i thot that wer going to have the convenience para makuha ung passport thru delivery but mukhang mas matagal pa po ata don.. almost everyday na po ako tumtawag sa LBC numbers as well as sa dfa kaso po both of them were always busy..ni di na po ako nakacontact.. i wanna know po ano na status ng passport ko.. di ko po alam if ano pang numbers ang pwede tawagan na possible na available.. ano pa po ba ways to know the status.. gusto ko na rin po sana pumunta ng dfa just to know but baka naman po di ako papasukin ng guard since wala po ako expected na appointment don.. hope you can help me with this..thank you!

  105. My daughter’s passport release date should be July 18, 2011.
    I just recieved her passport today July 25, 2011.
    tama, give them a week. patience lang talaga.

  106. master,wala pdn dumadating un passport ko hangang naun 😦 na cancel na un pag alis ko naun dhil don ,hnd pdn aq pumupunta ng dfa kc bka wla lan ako mapala ,e hnd nmn kalapitan sa dfa un luagr nmn ,ahm ..qng magpunta kya ko sa isa sa mga branch ng lbc then ipa track q sakanila ? pede kea un ? 2 weeks ng delay ..sbi ng tita ko nsa courier ndw un problema nun..

  107. master july 21 release date ng passport ko.sabi ng courier WWW express dpa raw na rerelease.sabi naman ng DFA tracking system via txt chikka nasa releasing section nadaw sa OCA.2days before release ako ng inquire..worried ako kc kailangan mena passport for visa.eh kung ako nlng mismo punta dfa pwede yung receipt ang ipakita ko lng!.bka hindi kc pickupin ng courier.gaya ng mga nababasa ko dito sa blog mo thanks….

    1. Ryan, when you go to the DFA, go first to your courier and ask them to assist you sa releasing section. Kung hindi mo sila makita, go to the releasing section and ask them how you can claim your passport since you have requested it via WWW courier, they should be able to point you to them.

  108. for follow ups, tama yung post ng iba, DO NOT CALL, it will only irritate you,
    5560000, pang display lang.

  109. Having to read this post is really a big help to those having problems with the delays in their passport both releasing and deliver. As for my observation, I haven’t experience delays in my passport releasing or deliver. DFA sms me on July 15 which is also my release date that my passport is ready. After two days, my passport came from Air21 and that’s it. Hassle free or maybe I’m just lucky. πŸ™‚

  110. dear blogger, i hve same problem some of the guess here. may passport stil didnt come yet. i tried how many numbers but stil talk to no one. their pone is not working or always in busy tone. may i know what is the LBC number that i can call to ask… thank u so much.

  111. master, pwede po ba un khit ako nlang ung kumuha ? khit hndi na ksama un nkasulat dun sa power of attorney ko ? 17 plng po kc ako kaya kabilang pdn ako sa minors ..ibbgay po kaya skin un khit ako lan ang kumuha ? salamat po !

    1. Zsha, dapat sa bukas or sa Thursday ma check mo na personally, since sa Monday mo na pala kailangan. Mas maganda kung kasama mo yung adult na may SPA para sigurado na ma entertain ka sa DFA.

  112. magandang araw po ! bkit po ganun july 12 po ang date release ng passort pero hanggang ngaun wala pdn nadedeliver sakin ..kontak ako ng kontak sa mga nos. nato (846-5889 , 567-3319 or 25 ,480-8440 ) pero ring lan ng ring walang sumasagot ,kanina pakong 7:30 am tumatawag jan hanggang 2:00pm ,walang pdn sumasagot ..haist nakkainis .. 😦 hinahabol ko pa nmn un enrolan dun sa singapore ,tapos kung ano pa un pinaka kailangan ko document un pa un wala ..

    1. Zshareeze, if you are in a big rush to have your passport, I suggets that you try going to the DFA releasing section para ma check mo na agad. If you can afford to wait, give it another week para madeliver sa ito, medyo delayed daw ang releases since the beginning of this month. Sana makuha mo na agad.

  113. good day!

    ask ko lang kasi sabi ng LBC one day after ng releasing date ung delivery nila eh hanggang ngaun po eh wala pa.. pwede kaya ung, personal ko na lng kunin at san ko na po kaya makukuha un.. kasi puro parebook na po ang nangyayari sa travel date namin..

    salamat po!

    1. Rehnit, you can try going to the DFA releasing section para mas mapadali ang pag check mo kung ano na nga ang nangyari. How long have you been waiting na ba? If matagal na, then your best option is to check it sa DFA mismo and force the hand of your courier.

      1. thanks! actually the releasing date is july 12 so they should deliver it by july 13… il just wait until friday but if they havent deliver yet, il go personally to dfa..thanks

  114. my passport was supposed to be delivered last july 12, til now wala pa rin. sabi naman sa text ng DFA nasa releasing na daw.

    yung contact number ng LBC, lagi ba’ng ganun na busy at kung magring man ay walang sumasagot? Don’t know what to do . help please

    1. Bino, if DFA said it is there, go to the DFA releasing section if you can’t wait and need your passport already. If you can afford to wait a week or so, then wait for the courier and baka by then ma-deliver na yan sa iyo

  115. hello i also had my passport delivered. release date was july 12, supposed to me at my doorstep the day after. i didn’t realize it was late until friday. i called LBC but they said it’s still in DFA. i called the DFAMPC hotlines in my receipt but i always get a busy line. when it rang, no one picked up. i was panicking because i have a flight on july 22nd. the weekend came and it was monday again. same thing, i called 5560000 and requested to be connected to releasing. i waitied for 15 minutes of ringing but i eventually gave up. at that time i thought there’s a 90% chance i won’t be able to get my passport.
    since i cannot afford to waste my money on my ticket, i went to DFA earlier, arrived by 1pm. there were so many people as usual. i informed the guard to let me in to releasing. i was directed to go to the director’s office. i gave the receipt and it was handed over to someone in the interview section. he called my name and said he’ll check my passport and call me back. by 2:15 he called me back in. i was so happy when i saw my passport. highlight of my month! according to him, it MAY BE that LBC didn’t pick up my passport.it didn’t really matter, i had my passport nonetheless.

    lesson learned: if you’re passport delivery is delayed, call your courier. if they say it’s still in DFA, go to DFA. DO NOT CALL the hotlines because that’s just for display and will only irritate you. expect to wait so bring something to make yourself busy. you will eventually get your passport. it’s sad but it’s how it goes. you have to persevere and not just sit at home waiting for more days of delay.

  116. hey master, good thing. my passport has just been delivered yesterday after an hour when i post a message here. didnt expect that because its sunday. thanks for the advice though. to all of you having problems. patience is important everyone.

  117. gud am po i need my passport.. bakit wala pa ang passport ko ng aply ako last july 1.. bakit until now wla pa at tumawag ako sa main po nang lbc wala pa po yung name ko.. punta nlang po me jan sa july 19 morning. ako nlang po mgkuha nyan jan sa dfa. kasi paalis nku next week. of this month..

    alma

  118. Master, ilang days or weeks po kaya bago irelease ung passport namin?? kasi we expected na marerelease ung passport dun sa releasing date na binigy but upto now wala pa.. mag aadvise po ba ung courier kapag idedeliver na ung passport??? i tried ung tracking system ng dfa but it was posted there na it shud be 3 days before the release date ung pag register kaso po after 3 days ko lang po nalaman abt the trcking system so automatically disregarded na po ung request ko.. wut ways pa po ba how to track my passport???

    1. Jolin, give a waiting period of 5 days pa. If you need to, call your courier every time to inquire about the status of your passport. Delayed talaga ang releases ngayon. Kung makuha naman ng courier mo yan, dedeliver agad yan sa iyo.

  119. master, ung passport ko should be released on july 8 pero gang ngaun wala p rn its been 1 week ng delay. lahat na ng hotline ntry ko na pero lahat bc. tnry ko na ung tracking system ngaun possible bng makareciv ako ng response ngaun, coz kelangn ko na ung passport ko tlga and antagal ng delay. ntong friday last na twag ko sa lbc pero wala p rn dw nauubos na pcnsha ko. should i be going to dfa this week? like archie de leon did.

    1. Jeck, how soon do you need your passport? If you can afford to wait another week, I recommend you wait para hindi sayang ang pagpunta mo sa DFA. If you can’t wait, you can try going there sa releasing section and have LBC search for your passport, though walang guarantee na makikita ito agad. Delayed kasi ang releases ngayon, pero your presence there would put pressure on the DFA and lbc to search and search.

  120. so mostly ay umuwi na wala pa din dala, tpos ang sabi sakin ni sir bong, naout na din ung sakin samantalang nung tanghali lang eh andun pa! so sabi ko hindi ako pwede magwait nlng ng delivery kasi flight ko sa monday. so ung asawa ko naghihintay sa labas ng gate wait namin si sir bong at isasama daw kami sa dfa old bldg kasi dun dinadala ung out for delivery. 9pm kami lumabas ng dfa aseana, kami nlng nga ang tao dun. so pinahintay kami sa may 711, over hr din kami nagwait pero pagbalik nya ala daw dun baka daw naiwan pa nga sa aseana bldg. (susmaryosep naman!) so ang sabi nya nlng, hanapin nya today at inform nya ako pag nahanap na nya. so ayun, this afternoon tinawagan ko sya if nahanap na nya and at long last! at 2pm today nahawakan ko din ang passport ko. this is a lesson learned in a hard way talaga. and to think na hindi na kami nakarefund ng 120 na binayad namin sa kanila! tpos ung sa anak nung lalaki na kasabay namin magwait kahapon, 3months ng delayed, nung itrack eh naout na nung may15 pa. at ayun nawawala sa courier! moral lesson, paglaanan ng oras ang pagclaim ng passport kesa gumastos sa courier para sa convenience pero puro sakit ng ulo lang ang daranasin mo. goodluck sating lahat! thanks master.

    1. Archie, I empathize with your experience. Tama ang paalala mo, wag po tayong maghintay ng photo finish sa pag aayos ng mga bagay bagay na pwede na natin gawin ngayon. I’m just glad your experience is already done with. Moral lesson everyone.

  121. good evening master. i would like to share lang my experience. nakuha ko na sa wakas ang passport ko today! yeeey for that. pero bago un, i went there yesterday at 2pm with my receipt from lbc. my passport was due for delivery at july6 pa. when i arrived, i was told to proceed to window 28-29 (releasing). the day before, i received the dfa msge by tracking my passport saying my passport is already available. then the personnel from lbc checked the status on their system and ang sabi eh andun pa nga daw and kadarating lang daw nun. (my god 2weeks na nga delay tapos kadarating lang). anyway i was asked to look for “sir bong” at the elevator and im shocked to see a crowd waiting for him also. as in almost 20 na tao kami dun parepareho ng issue. ung isa pa nga eh 3months delay na, ung isa naman before sunrise andun na. so 2:30pm ako naupo kasama nila waiting for a certain “sir bong” na supervisor ata ng coop nila with partnership sa lbc. 3pm bumaba sya, puro resibo ang dala, ilolocate pa daw. tpos nagrereklamo na lahat, binigay ko din resibo ko para mahanap nya. at 5pm, sa wakas may bumaba ulit na babae naman, 6 lang ang dalang passport, and 4 lang sa mga andun ang nakakuha. and the thing was, hindi ka pwede pumunta sa office nila sila lang ang may access dun! so ang pwede mo lang gawin is to wait to the max at isang katerbang pasensya. at 7pm ulit bumaba, nakakuha ung iba lang ulit madami pa din kami natira kasi nadagdagan pa kami eh. and to make the long story short, most of us there ang sabi eh naout na for delivery (after waiting ng super tagal!) and wait nlng daw sa mga address.

  122. hi, my passport should be release on july ,14. then LBC should be delivery it me at yesterday.. but as of now i still not yet receive it…then call up phone numbers to follow up, but it are busy,if not,nobody answer…….please tell me how to follow up … Thanks..!!

    1. Feng, give it a waiting period of about a week, the passport delays should be made up by then. In the meantime, try calling them to check, but after a week of waiting, you can opt to go to DFA and inquire at the releasing section. I’m assuming you applied in DFA ASEANA.

  123. Hi This is a Deaf girl from Binangonan, Rizal. I processed DFA passport last July 1 and dapat, my passport should be delivered to my home yesterday but I have not received yet. I am waiting for it to be received. Do you think it will be postponed to deliver it for me? how many days will be possible to deliver? Hope it wont take any longer…

  124. HELLO… I have received a confirmation from the DFA that my passport was released last JULY 13, 2011.. i have acquired an express delivery from LBC when i applied for it… but when i went to LBC, still my passport is not there…. My receipt (original) is at LBC, they get it when i acquired their delivery…. what i have now is the receipt from LBC for me to get it from the branch i had addressed.
    The text that i had received said that i can now get my passport at DFA-OCA releasing center… what should I do??? do i have to go there or wait for the LBC… the date of releasing was greatly delayed… IT was supposed to be delivered to me last JUNE 1, if i hadn’t followed up its status, it would have been much delayed.. hope you reply soon

    1. Joseph, which DFA branch did you apply. If in ASEANA, go there and go to the delivery section. Ask for your passport to be released by showing them the confirmation you received. If they can’t, ask for your DFA receipt and get it at the releasing section.

  125. Master, yung passport ko hindi pa din dumadating, July 8 dapat ang delivery nun from LBC. Ilang days pa kaya ang dapat kong hintayin? Busy yung telephone # ng LBC: 480-8440/846-5889 OR 567-3319 or 25.

    1. Gan, wait til Monday. Tawagan mo ulit para mag follow up. If wala pa rin ng Monday and you can do so, go to DFA releasing section on Tuesday to inquire.
      If you can afford to wait, you can try waiting til Wed or Thurs next week and then go on Friday kung wala pa rin.

  126. Hi master, naka ilan beses na ako pabalik balik sa directors office, sana po may mairefer kayo sa akin na kakilala sa dfa para makuha ko na un passport ko sana bukas. Release po ng passport ko ay July 20 pa, biglaan po kasi na may nagoffer sa akin ng job sa qatar.

  127. its oh soooo annoying. i have a booked flight on tuesday and i even availed of expedite processing. its supposed to be released last july6 but until now it hasnt arrived. i tried the passport tracking but to no avail, i dont receive a text. i dont know what to do because i also availed of delivery service and my receipt is with my friend who lives in the town as it is addressed to her for im living in an island with no access for couriers. im frustrated hhuhuhuhuhu. what will i do.

    1. Archie, your best chance is to go to the DFA this Friday, bring your tickets and proof of urgency. Go to the passport director’s office to get assistance on this.

  128. master ung passport ko po july6 ang release, express pa un. bakit po kaya wala pa hanggang ngaun ano po ba pwede ko gawin sa july19 na po ang flight ko to malaysia :((

    1. Mel, call your courier one more time, kung wala pa rin, go to the passport director’s office of the DFA, present your proof of urgency, flight, etc, etc and ask them to help you get your passport.

  129. hi master, ang apply ako ng passport then twas processed last June 7, so the released date is today July 13.. but, wala pa rin ung delivery then i tried calling the courier’s numbers but lagi po busy.. anong way pa po ba pano ko malaman ung status ng passport ko?? or kapg po ba pumunta ako sa branch ng LBC is irerelease na nila from there ung delivery ko??thx po. =)

    1. Joy, unang una, delayed talaga ang release ngayon. Wag ka pumunta sa LBC branch kasi wala silang magagawa para matulungan ka tungkol dito. I suggest give it 2-3 days, I’m sure by then malamang makarating na yan sa iyo. Advise me if ever.

    2. hi master, july 13 til july 15 hinintay ko po dumating un passport but wala po dumating. til when pa po kaya ung ipaghihintay ko?? i tried to call LBC numbers but lagi po sya busy.. if ever di pa rin dumating by next week un passport ano po kaya maganda gawin?? kasi kaya kami nag avail ng delivery for convenience but it seems na may mga delayed issues pala.. and refundable po ba ung delivery charge if ever na directly kunin na ung passport sa main office?? and kanino po kaya pwede iinquire about sa status ng passport ko?? thank you po

  130. I have renewed my passport and the release date is July 4. I was advised that it will be delivered to us on July 5 (coz I had it couriered via LBC). I have received my husband and daughter’s passport but mine wasn’t included. How can that be when we have applied for it at the same time and the release dates are the same? I have been trying to call this LBC number for 2wks now and my call just wouldn’t go through. I need your help on this coz I need it ASAP. Kindly advise if there are other ways for me to follow this up. Thanks!

  131. master, nakausap ko npo ung tga courier, ang sabi na wala daw s system nila ung name ko. sbi ko may nagtx n skn from DFA that it is already ready. so how come ala dun ung name ko s system. tumawag npo ako sa 2 number ng courier at they gave the same answer.

    Here po ako sa Zamboanga city. So i thought ang magpadeliver is more convenient, un pla ay mas nagulo pa.

    1. Shehan, sa DFA zamboanga ka nag apply right? Try going to the releasing section kung nagmamadali ka. Kung hindi naman, give your courier 2-3 days, I’m sure dadating din yan.

  132. good day master!
    having prob with my passport also. Filed for renewal last june 9, supposed released would be july 1. waited for it pero ala na deliver. Then tried passport tracking system and they texted me yesterday that it is already ready. however, d pa rin po naisend ng courier. dba dpt po ay dumating na today po?

    1. Hi, pwede ko bang makilala yun kakilala mo… kailangan ko lang kasi yun passport ko kasi may job offer na ako, eh ang release ng passport ko sa July 20 pa, baka madelay pa… salamat po

  133. Master – nakuha ko na ung passport ko thanks.. dun sa mga di pa nakakakuha advice ko lang mas mabilis kung may kilala ka sa loob para ipriority ung passport mo.. πŸ™‚ 8am kami nandun nakauwi kami ng 7pm..

      thanks

  134. master – bukas pupunta na ako sa DFA sana makuha ko na ung passport namin ng gf ko badly needed na kasi dahi sa juy 13 na ung flight namin.. sana makuha na po namin.. tnx.

  135. thanks.. nakuha ko na sya nung july 8.. hehehhe :)) and whats next po hahanapin sa immigration ..nkapagpabooked na din po ako .. mahirap poba ngayon makapasok sa SG?

  136. @ master – wala bang pwedeng tawagan sa dfa pag weekends.. wala pa din kasi until now and sa wed na ang alis namin papuntang HK.. kung pupunta naman ako sa monday sa dfa sa releasing area may kasiguradohan ba na makukuha ko un?

    1. Vina, walang office pag weekends eh. Try calling your courier (if you had it delivered) on Monday morning after 10am. If wala pa rin, try going to the DFA in the afternoon, sa releasing section. Passports have really been delayed but I’m assuming you already have plane tickets ready, so bring these as well. If wala pa rin sa releasing section, go to the passport director’s office, show ur tickets and ask for assistance on your passport.

  137. Hi. I was trying to google what are the causes of delays in passport deliveries and I found this site with helpful information. I just went this morning to DFA to inquire about my kid’s passport which was due to be delivered on July 6, 2011 since the release date is July 5. The lady guard didn’t let me in as it is a Saturday. I have already made flight reservations, though I haven’t paid the tickets yet. PAL said we’re only given until Tuesday to pay for the plane tickets. We’re scheduled to leave July 14 and I’m now getting frustrated. Do they deliver on weekends? Is it wise to go to DFA again on Monday to follow up? Or should I just make a phone call? Anyways, thanks for the helpful tips in here. God bless..

    1. Ice, your best option is to go at it on Monday, but first give your courier a call in the morning after 10 am, ask them re the status of your passport. In the afternoon, if all things are still murky, try going to the releasing section at DFA. They really don’t let anyone in on a Saturday at the DFA, unless you have a Saturday appointment. Passport release have really been delayed recently but nominally, given a week it usually gets released.

      1. Thanks Master. You’re helping a lot of Filipinos who are having passport issues. πŸ™‚

  138. ask ko lng po bakit hangang ngayn wala pa rin ung passport ko. last june 29 pa dapat realising ko po until now wala pa rin…air 21 po ang napili kng mag delever sa akin.gaano po ba katagal bago ma delever.bakit ung iba kng ano ung due date na nakalagay that time dumarating passport nila pero ako mag 2 weeks na wala na ring na delever.

  139. AKO JULY1 release pero wala pa din. yung kawork ko na kasabay ko nagpaappointment, dumating na ng july5 . . taga fairview yung friend ko, ako marikina lang, lagi busy number ng dfa ska ng hotline na nakalagay sa receipt for lbc. wala bang 24hrs na hotline????

  140. @master: supposedly my passport has to be delivered on the first of july but until today i haven’t received my passport, i’ve been calling 2GO (my courier service) but they havent received my passport from dfa, in this connection, my cousin and i applied passport on the same day, and same date of delivery, her passport was already delivered. sabay lang kmi nag apply sabay din ang releasing date..pero natanggap na niya ang passport niya pero yung akin wala pa. How will i know my passport status ba? any contact number na pwd ko po tawagan, i really need my passport because my employer has been asking for it thrice, na dedelay na po kc ang processing ng mga docs ko dhil sa delayed ng passport ko.. would highly appreciate your recomendation and feedback.. many thanks!

    1. Charisse, my advise is to wait until Friday or Saturday. Keep askign 2GO kung nakuha na nila. If by Monday wala pa, then go to the DFA releasing area and ask there. One week delay should be enough time para marelease ang passport mo. Delayed talaga ang ibang passports for production reasons.

  141. @MASTER: yes wednesday onwards ung trip namin. hopefully madeliver ng mas maaga. tumawag ako sa LBC ang sabi july 1 pang ang nadadala sa kanila. ask ko lang po kung weekly ba sila ngbibigay dun or daily? las piΓ±as lang nman ang location ko so malapit lang sa dfa. tnx for the response..

  142. master: may 31 kami ng apply ng gf ko tapos july 6 dapat and release date until now wala pa din tumawag ako sa LBC ang sabi wala pa daw diladala ung DFA sa kanila kaya di pa nila nadedeliver.. pa help naman po kung san pwede mag followup kasi nxt week na ang flight namin going to Hk. tnx.

    1. Ken, if until Friday wala pa rin ang passport mo, go to the releasing section of the DFA on Monday (I’m assuming your trip is around wednesday onwards the following week). If it is delayed, I think your courier can have it delivered as soon as DFA releases it.

  143. Is there a way to get even just the passport number if DFA messaged me on July 4th that the passport is already available ? Seems like 2go’s delivery system uses snail mail as until now theres no status yet,

    1. Espresso, when a passport is ready, it should be released to the courier for delivery. If your courier cannot deliver it yet, it means hindi pa binibigay sa kanila ng DFA. Wait it out a couple of days. I’m sure madadala agad sa iyo yan. It’s easy to say (or text) that your passport is ready pero we really are not sure until we see it in actuality. I suggest patience.

  144. master balak ko mag apply new passport for my 4 year old son at renew for myself at ng 10 year old son ko. pano po ba step na gagawin ko dito sana sa DFA LUCENA kasi taga san pablo ako. ano po ba ang mas maganda personally kami mag punta o sa agency? me nagsabi na mag fill-up muna application at saka skedyul the other week para sa pix etc AT 2 months pa relis.. isasama ko na ba agad mga anak ko sa 1st time ko pagpunta? ano ano po mga requirements? thanks

    1. Bernie, tumawag ka sa DFA lucena, kung wala silang appointment schedule, pwede mo na dalhin ang mga anak mo para sabay sabay na kayo. Kasi, one day lang yan, fill up, evaluate, and pix, biometrics, bayad, tapos babalikan sa release. Pwedeng around 2 months nga ang release, mas maaga ka mag apply mas mabilis mo makukuha.

      Kung may appointment sched ang DFA Lucena, ikaw na lang muna ang pumunta para makakuha ng mga schedule nyong pamilya.

  145. Nag apply ang pamilya ko ng passport through appointment system kasi maliliit pa yung mga anak namin.. Nagbayad kami ng Rush fee at delivery fee para nga comportable. July 2 ang sinabing delivery ng passport nila, pero nung July 2 yung sa wife ko lang ang dumating, yung sa mga bata wala. Nag inquire kami sa Air 21 at binigay namin yung tracking number para sa passport ng mga bata.. Sabi nila wala pa daw sa kanila.. Bakit nagka ganon eh isang date lang nag apply yung mag iina ko? Yung sa wife ko lang ang dumating? tapos walang maibigay na clear info ang DFA tungkol sa status nung passport ng mga bata. Tawagan daw namin ang Air 21, tawagan daw namin ang DFA pero walang sumasagot..

    1. Abd Raheem, give it a week and your children’s passports should be delivered. Since may delay sa production and release, it was good that your wife’s passport was released on time. Give it a little time and let’s see by the end of this week.

  146. ang pinakamaganda nyung gawen talaga is habaan nyu ang pasensha niu at maghintay nalang,ung samen nga sa lucena pa namen kinuha april 7 kame nag apply,may 30 ang release taz nung release date na wala pa pala,taz naghintay nalang kame kc sabe mga 15days pa madedelay,kaya naghintay nalang kame after 6days tumawag aku sa LBC sabe nila wala pa daw passport namen sa kanila, peru kinabukasan aun diniliver din nila kahit umuulan… ngaun kc sobrang delay daw talaga kaya habaan pa naten pasensha naten,kung iinit ang ulo naten lalu lang kau mahihirapan,.. wag tayo mawalan ng pag asa magsilbing aral na 2 saten,.. dadating din mga passport nyu..

  147. Hi MasterCitizen, would it be possible to go straight to DFA and claim my passport there? Similar to regina, my passport should have been given to my courier (2GO) yesterday, June 29, 2010. I’ve called 2GO and said that they haven’t received my passport yet.

    Would it be prudent to go to DFA and get it straight from them? What would you suggest that I do to quickly facilitate this problem. Thanks so much for all your help.

    1. RJ, even if you go to the DFA directly there is no guarantee that your passport will be available. Also, since you have applied for delivery, your passport is tagged for release to your courier so it would take a hard time for releasing to look for it if you go there personally (plus we are not sure if it is really available already). Passport production is delayed, give it a week from now and you should be able to get it delivered to your doorstep.

  148. gud afternoon master bt poh gnon june 21 p releasing ng passport q,pmnta q dn d rw gwa tax pnblik aq ng june 29,pgpnta q dn d rn dw gwa tax pnbblik nnmn aq s july 7 sobrng pmshe n gnstos q peo bt npktgl ng releasing supposed to be dpt 15 wrking days lng xe rush un 1200 bnyad q..ano poh b ngyyri s processing?at cnu poh pwede mcontct pra mlmn q ung status ng passport q qng mre2liz n oh ndi p bgo q ulit pmnta s DFA.. sna help muh poh aq tnz…G>b

    1. KC, para d ka mapagod, try calling the DFA first at their hotline, 556-0000 or 8344000 . Kung hindi ka naman nagmamadali, try mo balikan ng July 11 para mas sigurado ka na. Delayed ang passport production kaya backlogged ang release.

  149. dated release ng passport k is yesterday (june 28,2011) but when i call the air21 about the delivery they said wla p raw s knila ung passport k.tlaga b lagi delay ang release ng passport?

    1. i pay for the rush of 1200..any updates from the dfa please help.and dami k ng naaksayang load katatawag s air21 at s dfa lagi wla sumasagot.

      1. Regina, passport release is really delayed because production has been back logged. Try waiting until next Tuesday, maybe by then it would be delivered to you.

  150. Wala pa ren ang passport ko, which is supposedly released on June 27 2011? hindi pa ren daw na i rerelease ang sabi ng LBC, hindi pa nila natatanggap. bakit po hindi on time ang schedule ?

  151. Hi Sir,

    I have applied for passport renewal last May 2, 2011 and it will be release on June 27, 2011. Up until now, I am worried coz I don’t hear any news from DFA regarding my passport. I have a flight on June 28, 2011, so if I don’t get my passport before June 28, I could not catch my flight. I have been calling the regional office in Pampanga (961-6175) but all I get is a busy tone, if not fax tone. Is there a way where I can follow-up or speed up the processing of my passport except making a long distance call to Manila? Thanks. Hope you could assist me on this.

  152. Hi,

    Tanong lang. I’ve applied for the delivery service of my passport. I was wondering kung pwede ko na lang makuha yung passport ko on its release date instead na hintayin ko pang mapadeliver ito. Thanks

    1. Melai, I think it is possible, though the refund would be less than what you paid for considering na yung delivery service that you availed have devoted time and manpower to monitor your passport. Try calling them and ask for this possibility early on.

  153. Master citizen, isa po akong OFW, nag renew po ako ng passport ng june 6, 2011 sa DFA LUCENA 950 po binayaran, sabi nila wala na daw rush ngayon, kailangan ko po ang new passport ko ngayong first week ng july para sa visa processing papunta ng saudi arabia. Tumawag po ako sa DFA LUCENA sabi po sa akin alam ko na daw na matagal ang process dahil sa technical addjustment, ang totoo po hindi ko alam ang bagong system ng DFA dahil kararating ko pa lang noong feb. 21, 2011 galing saudi. Sana po matulongan nyo ako ma i release ng maaga ang passport ko salamat po.

    1. Anaceto, try mo pumunta sa passport director’s office o officer ng DFA Lucena na dala dala ang proof of urgency mo, mga dokumento na nagpapakita na kailangan mo ng passport nang mas maaaga. Sila ang makakatulong sa iyo ukol sa bagay na yan.

  154. Hi good morning master citizen, do you have idea kung marerelease ung mga passport na inapply last May 12. I have a biz trip on the 26th of June if ever na pupunta ako sa DFA would you know kung ano ung mga kailangan ko dalhin para marelease nila ung passport ko. I was trying to call the whole day pero i never had the chance to talk to them. Thanks!

    1. Linalyn, you would need to show documents to prove the urgency of your request. Normally they would ask kung may ticket ka na or kung gaano na kahalaga yung lakad mo para mag request ng early release. If you can bring these documents, you bring them to the passport director’s office.

  155. gud day po. I just want to ask the soonest release of my renew passport at dfa lucena. I just applied it last June 6, 2011. Ang nakalagay po kasi sa resibo ay Sept 1 pa ang release. Pwede ko na po kayang makuha yon by first week of July?, kailangan ko po kasi agad para sa processing ng visa ko. Sana po matulungan nyo ako.

    1. Ceto, go and ask the passport director of DFA Lucena. Kung hindi naman kasi super urgent yung reason mo, you would have to wait like everyone else. Kung may proof of urgency ka, pwede mo kulitin yung DFA passport director’s office.

  156. sir
    mali pla una ko hiningi, LBC DFA Lucena po…
    mobile po sana sir kung meron kau
    (LBC and DFA Lucena Mobile number)
    salamt po ulit sir…

  157. pwede po ba sa inyo mag pa pick up ng requirements kesa hintayin yung appointment sa DFA? kailangan ko n po kc yun passport by the end of july. RENEWAL lng po. nagawa ko n po kc dati yun tapos nagpunta lang ako ng DFA for appearance after nun idedeliver na lang. πŸ™‚ PLEASE 2go yung nagdeliver sakin dati, di ko na mahanap website nila ngayon. thanks po πŸ™‚

  158. mastercitizen, thanks for accomodating my query. o nga, halos same lng din. cge, wait ko na lng d2 sa dfa main. ms convenient pa at mas maganda ung lugar. since by appointment, d na kailangan makipila mula 4am lalo na may mga bata akong kasama. thanks again…

  159. hi, ask ko lng po kng san mas mabilis kaya, dfa batangas or dfa main (aseana)? kc ung appointment ko sa dfa main ay sa july 26 pa + 25 working days. sa dfa bats, walkin anytime + 60 working days daw. both are not 100% sure sa processing time kaya d ko alam kung uuwi ba kme sa bats pa or wait na lng ung appointment date sa dfa main. wala kming problem sa transportation expense, gusto ko lng sana makakuha ng passport the soonest possible time. please feel free to share experiences or opinions on this matter. thanks…

    1. MJJJ, pag compute ko ng araw halos pareho lang. If you apply sa Batangas by June 15, you’re 60th day would be around Aug 15. Sa ASEANA naman, July 26 + 25 days, around Aug 20. Kung release data naman ang iniisip mo, pareho lang lalo na kung delayed ang production nila. If it is delayed, it is delayed for all DFA. But the 25 days and 60 days na waiting time is more than enough to process the passport dapat.

  160. ang alam ko 65 days na ngaun ang passport 950 na sha wala ng rush,65 days + 15 days na delay= 80days sa DFA RCO e2..

  161. wala n po bng passport tracking system sir? ksi gus2 ko po malaman kng mapapaaga n po b yung realese ng passport ko sa DFA batangas salamat po

    1. Reynaud, kung maaga mo kailangan dapat meron kang proof of urgency na kailangan mo ng nga passport. Kung wala, you would have to follow the scheduled release date given by the DFA. Ang proof of urgency ay katunayan na kailangan mo ng passport agad tulad ng plane ticket o dahilan na may pupuntahan kang lugar na importante talaga.

  162. Sir nag apply po me ng passport ko sa DFA batangas noong may 23 bkit po ang release ng passport ko eh august 16 ask ko lng po bkit almost 2 1/2 months? bkit po ang tagal pede po b yun mapaikli yung release salamat po ng marmi… tsaka po kng mapaaga yung release maidiliver po kya sa akin yun?

  163. salamat dumating na passport namen, delayed sha ng 1wik.. peru atleast dumating na din, un nga lang expired na mga papers na gagamitin namen for applying visa, kaya sa iba sana maging aral na saten 2, kumuha na tau ng passport ng maaga hindi ung kung kelan kelangan na naten, and wag po kau mawalan ng pag asa,habaan pa pasensha naten, lahat naman di nakukuha ng madalian,pray pray lang po tau.. goodluck sa iba.. πŸ™‚

    1. Hannah, delayed ang passport production ngayon. Hopefully hindi ka naman nagmamadali sa paggamit ng passport mo. If you need it asap, you can go to the passport director’s office, bring all proof of urgency documents and hopefully matulungan ka nila sa early release.

  168. Hi mastercitizen. your kind words helped me gain enough patience and hope. When you told me that my husband’s passport might be released that week or the next week after, I felt better. πŸ™‚ He already got his passport and he’s now waiting for his visa. Again, thank you very much! πŸ™‚ May God continue to bless you!

  169. hi theresa salmat sa number na binigay mo from rizal ako sa dfa lucena din ako nagrenew nung march 31 2011 releasing date nang may 9 2011 ayun gang ngayon wala padin ung passport ko,,

  170. kami nga din naglalakad ng visa,kaya lang dahil sa delay ang pagrelease lahat ng papers namen na expired,sana di nalang cla naglalagay ng date release,para di na aasa ang mga tao sa kanila, nasa kanila ang problema kaya dapat cla ang mag effort na kontakin ang mga aplikante na di pa ma rerelease ang passport,di kc nila alam kung ganu kalaking abala ang ginagawa nila,sinasamantala pa nila ang pagkakataon dahil ang ibang gipit na napipilitan lumapit sa agency at nagbabayad ng 10thou,grabe…. matuwid na daan nga ang gus2 ng gobyerno,kaya lang baluktut naman ang mga serbisyo..

  171. opo nga eh…actually nakiusap na ako kanina sa director ng clark..but they say no! wala talaga daw silang magagawa..may back log pa nga daw sila…=( then he advice na attend ako ng embassy appointment ko then pakita ko receipt ko at ung embassy daw mag aadvice sakin if what gagawin ko..kaso im worried na baka dahil don ma deny ako…so sad hnd ko akalain na ganun katagal ang passporting process sa Pinas ngaun…

  172. naku gin, wag kana umasa kahit pakiusapan mu ang dfa wala cla magagawa, kung di pa nabubutasan ung passport mu try mung i paextend nalang kc subrang tagal talaga ung july29 na release date mu di pa un sure malamang paghihintayin kapa nila ng 15days..

  173. hello po…ask ko lang nag apply ako ng passport ko sa DFA clark May30 2011, pero sobrang tagal po ng release sa july 29 papo…ano po bang pwede kong gawin kc po may interview ako sa embassy for visit sa june29 at target flight ko po is july 16.., sana po matulungan nyo po ako…maari ko papo bang ma pa rush yun?..saan po ako pwedeng mag follow up?…salamat

    1. Gin, try going to the passport director’s office or his equivalent sa DFA Clark. Bring all the documents showing as proof of your urgency. They will explain to you the possibilities regarding your passport.

  174. haaayyy.. di pa pala normal ang releasing ng passport, nag apply aku apr.7 sa DFA LUCENA dpat ngaun may30 ku makukuha kaya lang sabe nila wala pa din daw,haaayyy sana naman nagtetext cla sa mga applicant galing pako manila sayang pamasahe at chaka nakakapagud na byahe.. anyway gus2 ku lang share sa iniu ung no. ng dfa lucena para ma update niu ung passport niu kung andun na.. 09274370443, 09496367312 nakuha ku yan kanina sa dfa lucena.. haaayy

  175. DFA e passport processing is a big crap….. When the processing gets automated to they call “e Passport”, things went extremely slow…. It affects the travelling plan of the people. I applied march 15,2011 till now not yet released. I would suggest that they don’t have to cancel instead to give extension to the old passport till the new one is released…

    Mirror of the cancerous system in the philippines

  176. ng apply po ung fwnd ko april25 tapos ang release po may 10 hanggang ngayon po wala pa….nung pumunta po cla sa dfa lucena nacra daw po ung machine…kelan po ba tlaga una release xe kelangan na po nila bukas….

  177. ng aply po april 1 tapos releasing po may 10 hanggang ngayon wala pa po…kaelan po vah yong release?kasi kaelangan nah….reply asap……

  178. thank you. you have definitely lessen the burden I am feeling right now. Seeing him losing hope each day gives me pain in twofold. He is very much willing to help his family and though I don’t want him to go, I can’t be selfish. I just hate the reality that everything seems fine…except this passport. I never stop praying. I may sound too emotional or exaggerated but the need of his family for this job opportunity is just too much. Again, thank you very much.

  179. I am just so disappointed. my husband applied for a passport last march and was given a release date of May 6. Hanggang ngayon wala pa. Yun agency na inapplyan nya, kinukuha na passport niya. I call DFA everyday and they keep on giving me false hope. I asked DFA Batangas again today and this time I am no longer as nice as I was, kung anong papers ang kelangang isubmit para magawa na yun passport ASAP. Wala daw. So meaning, we just have to sit down and wait forever. I am honestly in tears right now kasi he’s already done with all the medical exams and have spents so much for it and for his dental. His father has cancer and he really wants to work abroad to provide them. But I don’t think it will be possible anymore. The Agency calls him like every other day. It was his ninong who processed his employment not until someone else will be hired because it is taking him too long. Everyday, this situation breaks my heart to see him so hopeless each day.

    1. Janna, I’m really saddened by your situation. The passport production is really back logged at the moment. This means maraming applications pero hindi ata kaya ng production machine na magawa yung passport. However, since May 6 pa ang release ng passport mo, it might take about this week or next week and I think dadating na sa Batangas ang passport ng husband mo. Have patience and faith and explain it to the agency na DFA ang may concern sa problem na to. Hope everything turns out well.

  180. e panu naman po pag dfa lucena ilang days po ang release nila,,, sabi nila 25 working days,, nagbayad ako nang 1200 para sa express,,

    1. Angelo, if they committed to 25 days, yun nga ang kaya nila for express. However, expect that to extend around 30 days, as per experience of other people from various places.

  181. sa mga kumuha po ng passport sa DFA La Union, 55 Days daw po ang alloted days ng process ng passport. Sbi sakin ng kakilala namin sa DFA. And BTW got my passport already!

  182. me technical problem ba ang dfa?bakit may 9 2011 ang release nang passport ko pero hanggang ngayon wala padin… bakit me telephone number naman sila hindi naman matawagan puro ring lang ayaw sagutin….

  183. salamat sa dfa nag back out na po yun employer ng mister ko sa malaysia..dami nila naperwisyo trabaho abroad ang hirap pa namn ng buhay hirap mag hanap ng matinong work at malaking sahod dito sa pinas!!!

  184. hi. i applied for a passport yesterday. it was fast and smooth. i asked if i can have my passport rushed, it was approved. the release date is june 6. but my problem is our flight to singapore is on june 3. i need help. what can i do? i tried going to the director’s office. please. thank you.

    1. Rose, what did the director’s office advise you when you went there? They should be the one able to help you when you present your proof of urgency documents like ticket, contract, etc

  185. I and my wife applied for our passport last March 30, 2011. Released date as stated on the processing window is May 6, 2011. My wife already got her passport but mine is not yet delivered, I tried calling 2GO but per their status they have not recieved yet the passport. I tried calling DFA numbers 834-4000 and 556-0000, agent will transfer to a certain number but luckily nobody answers the phone. Any other ways to follow up for the status? Help please.

    1. Mark Anthony, try waiting for a week. Probably your passport has been batched separately. If this does not appear by next week, you can try going to DFA and inquire personally at the releasing section. Just show your receipt. You have a better chance at calling 2GO since they would know the daily status of your passport. Just keep calling them for updates from now until next week before you decide to go there yourself.

  186. good day,, wala napo ba kayong ibang suggestion,, diko alam kung san ako tatawag,,ung ibinigay niyo na nymber hindi naman sinasagot.
    super late napo ako sa pagaalis ko magpaparebook nanamn kami,,

  187. sir good day… i would like to ask about my passport,, may 9 2011 ung release nang passport from dfa lucena im from Pililla Rizal..then in lbc they told me that they will deliver the item on may 10 2011,, upto now there’s no lbc agent blowing their horn in front of my house.
    what would i do? please help me,, thanks alot…

  188. good day sir,
    meron po bang dfa location na madali makakuha ng passport renewal kasi po urgent na makaalis nako to work…..

    1. Lynn, sa DF Batangas walang appointment sched. Just go there and apply but be early. However, the release date would probably be still around a month from the date of processing.

  189. Good day,i went hereat dfa baguio for appointment last march 25, my appointment sched wl be on june 6, i jst want to ask madam/sir if how many days or weeks pa mse2cure passport after that biometrics? grabe d2 pinas sobrang advance ano?

    1. Magdalo, according to what we have heard, it takes about a month or so to get the passport produced after biometrics. πŸ™‚ welcome to our country :). soon makikita rin natin ang matuwid na landas….

  190. ask ko lang po bkit di pa nadedeliver passport ko?may 10 ang nakalagay n deliver s receipt pero up to now di pa dumadating..di nmn makontak ung phone na nakalagay s receipt….sana po mabasa ito ng kinauukulan ng 2go.thanks in advance!

  191. Hi Sir,
    I am from Pampanga. Where do I could possible call just in case by June 21-24, I do not have yet my passport with me?
    I hope so.. I hope to get it atleast 1 week before the realease date which is June 27 so that I need not worry of not catching up my flight on June 28. 😦
    Also, I think it would be unfair then if processing would take beyond 40 working days because I have paid 1200 so as not to reach the 50 working days release, right? 😦

  192. hi Sir,
    I had an my appointment last may 2, 2011 and paid 1200 for the renewal of my passport. They said that the release would be 40 working days, and it’s on June 27, 2011. I just would like to ask if there would be no extension for that date because my flight is on June 28, 2011. Do you think I can get my passport on or before that date? I am so worried.. 😦
    Thanks.

    1. Kyx, 40 days from may 2 is June 27. Technically, they would give you a release date well beyond what they can accomplish so dapat safe na ang 40 days. Super tagal na nga nun eh. Try checking on the week of June 21-24 by calling them at 556-0000 or going there to the director’s office just to be sure.

      1. Hi Sir,
        I am from Pampanga. Where do I could possible call just in case by June 21-24, I do not have yet my passport with me?
        I hope so.. I hope to get it atleast 1 week before the realease date which is June 27 so that I need not worry of not catching up my flight on June 28.
        Also, I think it would be unfair then if processing would take beyond 40 working days because I have paid 1200 so as not to reach the 50 working days release, right?

  193. hello to all bakit ganun nag apply ako ng passport sa DFA Batangas last March 19 using the courier LBC Express dapat ang delivery date ay April 27, 2011 pero hanggang ngayon wala pa rin. Ano pwede gawin? I try calling lahat ng hotline pero wala naman sumasagot. Meron pa ba kayo ibang alam na hotline ng LBC express para sa passport? malapit na kasi kami umalis. Scheduled na namin this May 17 pero until now wala pa ako passport. Help me pls. =(

  194. hello po!nag appearance po ako sa dfa batangas kasama k ung 2 anak k na minor nong may 4,2011.sabe po nila july 28 po ang release.possible po ba n mas maaga ung release ng passport.need lang po kc namin bago mag august.tnx

    1. Sassygirl, you would need to show proof of urgency sa director’s office or sa OIC sa DFA kung bakit papayagang marelease ng maaga ang passport mo. Bring all documents na will show this if you can.

  195. Master, I’m really upset sa DFA coz MAy 5 yung said date ng release sa DFA La union (travel agency ako) and umuwi ung mom ko para sunduin ako from Japan at ipprocess namin ung visa ko na long term w/certificate of eligibility sa japan embassy uuwi n sya bukas di ko pa nakukuha passport ko. What do I do? Sobrang kailangan na namin kasi mageexpire na ung Certificate ko at magiging invalid na sya i need to be there by May 20 sa Japan, kung hindi ako mkkpnta dun by that date wala na. 😦 ano ba yan. sobrang nakakastress po. ano ggwin ko? thankss po πŸ™‚

    1. Red, bring all necessary documents to prove your need for urgency. Dalhin mo sa passport OIC or director’s office sa DFA La Union. Tell them your concern baka mapabilis nila ang pagkuha.

  196. nagfile ako ng renewal sa Batangas, pwede ba sa DFA manila kunin yung passport? Anong process ang kailangan gawin? salamat.

    1. Jerome, sorry pero kung saan mo inapply ang passport mo, dun mo rin kukunin coz naka arrange ang release ng passport based on the location where it was applied.

    2. @ Jerome:

      Yes, you can get ur passport n DFA Manila, u’l need to send a “Letter of Request” addressed to the OIC in DFA batangas.

  197. my friend processed his passport in CDO last April 18. our flight is on monday, may 9. is there any chance he can get the passport by early monday? can he get it here in manila? isn’t there any way to rush it somehow? thanks.

  198. tanong ko lang po.. nagpaset po kasi ako ng appointment online today (may 5) ang sched for appearance ko po is on may 9 @ 4:00pm sa DFa asean ..pero unfortunately my importante pala ako gagawin that date kaya i tried to cancel the appointment pero eto ung sinabi nila sa site:

    “Sorry

    There was a problem processing your request. Please try again after a few minutes.

    Cannot cancel. Appointment is on 2011-05-09 already.”

    panu po yan eh importante talaga ung lakad ko on may 9;( im from ilocos norte pala FYI ;(

    1. Hi Maryann, the usual cancellation is 8 days before the date, kaya hindi ma process yung request mo. Ok lang yan, if you can’t make it, then no show lang ang status ng request mo. You can always get a new appointment date. kaya lang hindi na natin alam kung makakakuha ka ulit ng maaga πŸ™‚

  199. thanks sa reply MC sana nga makuha namin ng exact june 8 yung passport ng asawa ko para nman ma email namin agad yung employer..

  200. hi master,
    ask ko lng po is there a chance na makuha ng mister ko yung passport nya sa release date na june 8,2011?sa dfa lucena po sya nag renew nung apr 18 at 35 working days dw po expidite na po yun.kasi po antay na po sya nung employer at pag nadelay pa sa june 8 baka po umatras na po yun dahil sobrang tagal na po ng pag aantay nila.magandang opportunity na po yung job na yun hoping na sana makuha nya sa june 8..any progress about sa delay ng pagrelease ng passport?

    1. The length of time given at 35 days, mukhang pasok na yun sa kakayanan ng DFA na mabuo yung passport ng asawa mo. Try mo tawagan from June 1 to 7 to check para makasiguro ka

  201. thanks MC, but i think its not enuf reason pra e delayed nila. kung kulang ng machines or sira mn, dpat they have extra machine for watever problem may occur or palitan kung sino mn supplier nila, and dun sa hndi binalikan hndi nmn ata fair yun pra e delayed dn nila yung iba,. If u have any connections to DFA personnel sana ho mapa abot nnu ang reklamo tungkol sa delayed process of passports. SALAMAT po. :/

  202. hello po master, just want to ask if u have any idea of this, a friend said kasi na mas better daw ipa extend muna kay sa ipa renew. dn sa case ko kasi nakapag renew na ako dn im worried na baka ma delayed, is there possible pakaya na mapa extend ko, pero yung problem is na butasan na kasi yung passport ko noong nag renew ako.

  203. inquire lang po,, ano napo kaya updates sa releasing ng passports?, bumibilis na po ba ulet?, last april 19 lang po kasi ako nag-applay sa dfa batangas. any updates lang po sana on dfa
    Thanks..

  204. inquire lang po,, ano napo kaya updates sa releasing ng passports?, bumibilis na po ba ulet?, last april 19 lang po kasi ako nag-applay sa dfa batangas.
    Thanks..

  205. MC, ano ba talagang problema ng mga taga DFA ngayon, bakit delayed ang pag release ng mga passport. sino ba talaga dapat managot or sumagot mn lang sa mga ngyayaring delayed.. Maraming flights ang napacanceled dahil sa delayed ng releasing,.

    1. J-ann, I think delayed ang production area ng passports. This means either kulang sa machine or sira ang machines. Production output can’t cope up with the demand at the moment. Additional problem naman yung mga nag papaprocess ng passport tapos hindi binabalikan for release. There are news saying that the DFA holds hundreds of passports ready for release pero hindi naman kinukuha ng mga nagapply. It’s really a mix of both, though concerns like yours are valid and this problem needs to be addressed.

      Contact informations can be found at dfa.gov.ph

  206. Its me again from iloilo..went to dfa to pick up passport as dated today. I applied on it last march 24 and they asked me to come back on may 24… Can’t they just give me the passport number para ma schedule yung interview ko??? Any websites that can assist me with the follow up online???

  207. Follow up ko lang po yung passport ng anak ko,hershe aliguyon, for release last april 5, till now wala pa. Nag txt ang dfa last week ng march telling me na male late, gaano pa katagal ang ipag aantay? please help.

  208. Hello Master. Im from Cebu. May 2 sana ang releasing date ang passport ng cousin ko thru a travel agency. pero wala kaming feedback. May 16 na kami aalis. San naman i-aadress yung letter of request para ma release yung passport agad? Thank you po.

    1. Jerika, I pried this info, but it may have changed by now. I think the numbers would still be the same though, you can try calling that to ask who and where you can go.

  209. I have applied at DFA batangas for renewal of passport last March24, 2011.. they already got an appointment system, no more walk-ins..expected date of release is May 3 which is tomorrow.. rush yon, i paid 1200 for that pero ganon katagal ang waiting period, more than a month..hopefully makuha ko bukas, pero mukhang hinde. 😦

    FYI

  210. I changed status with my passport last march 24 here in DFA Iloilo. I wanted sana to check if ok na for pick up yung passport but to no avail palagi..walang sumasagot sa phone nila (ive been trying to call them since last week).. Is there any chance i can check on it online?

    1. Kristin, sa tagal ng panahon, more than a month na, probably available na yung passport mo. Kung hindi ka nagmamadali, palipasin mo pa ng 2 linggo para mas sigurado bago mo puntahan ang DFA Iloilo. Walang online access sa kanila and kung meron man, mas ok pa rin kung tatawagan mo sila hindi ba, dahil mas mabilis ang feedback sa tawag. Kung walang sumasagot, your best choice would be to go there. If you can wait, palipas ka muna ng ilang araw para hindi sayang yung punta mo.

  211. hi po bkit po hanggang nagyun eh dpa po dini diliver ng lbc ang pasport ko nung april 18 pa po realiesed nun hanggang nayun wla pa po,what happen po kya

  212. master, pede bang sa release date aku nalang ang kukuha ng passport ku at ng nanay at pamangkin ko, pede bang di ku na cla isama? sa lucena pa kc aku nag apply,wer on manila pa..

    1. Theresa, you can get the passport of your mother. Pwede kasi immediate family member mo sha. Pero sa pamangkin mo, kung minor, sino po ang naka Special Power of Attorney, na authorized to be the guardian. Kung legal age na sha, nanay, tatay o kapatid lamang ng pamangkin mo ang pwedeng kumuha.

  213. gud day. ask ko lang uli. nag apply n ako sa dfa tuguegarao ngayon april 29 at ang releasing daw nito ay sa july 5. kailangan ko n sa ipaexpidite iyong passport ko dahil may sakit ang father ko sa states at kailangan ko n daw pumunta dun. hihingi ako ng advice kung ano ang dapat ko gawin upang mababilis ang processing ng passport ko. kailangan ko bang ipakita iyong certificate ng doctor regarding sa condition ng father ko. please help me at nauubusan n kmi ng time at masyadong matagal ang juily 7 n releasing date.

    1. Shalac, go to the head of DFA Tuguegarao and show all the documents you have to prove the need for urgency. The DFA head will decide if s/he can help expedite your passport.

    1. Jayr, try going to DFA Aseana and go to the Passport Director’s Office. Bring all documents that shows proof of urgency. SIla makakatulong dapat sa concern mo na makuha ang passport ng maaga. πŸ™‚

    1. Janeth, as per latest news, pwede mag walk in sa Pampanga DFA kasi wala pang appointment system sa kanila. You can verify by calling their contact number: 045 961-6175.

  216. im from tuguegarao and i am planning to renew my passport here at dfa tuguegarao but the problem is the releasing date will be on July 2 (40 working days) because of some technical problem. tanong ko lang kung sa manila kaya ako nag renew nasusunod b ang 15 working days sa rush or ganun din katagal ang pagrerelease nila ng passport.
    Please reply immediately. tnx and god bless.

    1. Illac, here in Manila, you will need to get an appointment schedule pa, if you get one now, mga 25-30 days na waiting ka pa bago makapag appear sa DFA. Tapos yung 15 working days hindi 100% sure as per balita dito. Mga 20 days or more pa, so aabutin ka ng 30+20 = 50 days. Estimate yan based on actual facts here

  217. ask ko lang po kung pwd ako mag apply sa dfa emergency for my passport renewal kailangan ko kc magpunta agad sa US dis may at ooperahan ang father ko for lung cancer. kailangan bang magpakita ng letter na manggaling ng Doctor sa US regarding the status of my father condition. Please reply immediately. tnx and god bless.

    1. Shan, when you go personally, tell the guard that you will go to the Passport Director’s office. Bring all proof of urgency, and they will decide if they will expedite your process and request. This is for DFA Aseana location.

  218. renewal po ung passport ko through solomom travel agency here in san pablo laguna. sa dfa lucena po aq nag renew at expidite po un. march 7 aq nag renew den supposed to be april 12 ang released but until now ala p din po. anu b po nid gwin para mlaman q kung bkit ala p din passport q,. mag 2 months n po kc.

  219. tanong ko lang kung paano maiparush yung passport ng pamangkin k tagal na kasi ng appointment tapos wait ka ulit para application , then sa releasing matagal din nagkaron pa ng
    technical problems pa daw.

    1. Since technical problem daw, try going to the director’s office of the DFA to request for a faster release. However, you would need to show proof of urgency (documents that show you need the passport asap) in order to force the issue.

  220. ngfile na kc ako sa dfa tacloban..gusto kona kc ma release or kunin ko nlang dto sa manila pwde ba un?….

  221. SIR/MAAM, gud eve po itatanong ko lng po sna kc nagexpress po ako kc kylangan ko n po yung passport ko kya dpat march 17 p po released but until now ala p po…s batangas city po ako ng renew …san po b ako pwde tumawag o kya mg email sna po matulungan nyo ako kc kyalnagn ko n po tlga ung passport ko…salamat po

    1. Jason, you can try applying at DFA Batangas in Lipa. They have no appointment schedule there and you can just walk in with your application. Make sure you are early. It is in Batangan Plaza in Lipa Batangas.

  223. Sir/Madam, gud pm po, ano po ba nagyayari? I renewed my passport last Mr7 together with new application of my daughter’s passport, the released must be Apr11 + 1day for delivery of LBC, so it should be yesterday..bakit po ganun ala pa rin up to now? Sana po maprioritized nyo po ung mga express ang pa expidite kc ung po sa akin naka express..Please po naman kelangan2 na po namin un.Thanks.

    1. Hello Lorie, you can follow up at these LBC numbers on the status of your passport. baka in transit na, if not, they should be able to advise you on the situation. There are two LBC providers kasi sa DFA, try the numbers na lang.

      LBC 480-8440/846-5889 OR 567-3319 or 25

  224. bkt po ganon ngaun sa DFA delayed ung release nang passport..kailangn ko pa nman kaagd un kc paalis na ako..bukas sna dpt ma release eh ngsend cla nang SMS na delayed dw pro nong tomwg ako sa DFA tacloban hnd cla mkpgbgy nang exact date sa release..ano po ggwin ko..ilang beses na ako tumwag sa knla..

    1. Jason, it seems delayed talaga ang production schedule ng passport, from your scheduled release it would probably take a week or so to get your passport. Make plans to advise and adjust your travel sched if you can. Inquire your passport status at the DFA every other day also.

  225. Dear Master. My passport schedule release is on may 03, 2011. My employer in singapore is expecting me to start on may 04. What would I do. Can I ask my employer to email me an endorsement letter which I can give to DFA para di po mdelay yung passport ko. thanks

    1. Dear James, you can try that and sometimes it will help. However there is little guarantee that it might work, but it’s better than doing nothing. It won’t hurt to try.

  226. Dear Master, is there a way na ma follow-up ko yung release ng passport sa DFA Main Office,
    I renewed my passport in DFA Lucena? Date of Release is March 24, but until now April 8, wala pa din…. san ko kaya pwede mapa expedite yung release….

    1. Hi Miccah, this is the contact info of DFA Lucena as I found it:
      OIC: EDMUNDO A. MANGUBAT
      3rd Flr. Pacific Mall Lucena
      M.L. Tagarao St., Barangay III, Lucena City
      Tel. No: (042) 710-4526 / 373-1119
      Fax No: (042) 373-1898
      E-mail: dfarcolc@pldtdsl.net

      Since the passports are produced in bulk then segregated for each assigned location, there is no way for us to inquire at the main office. However, this is the hotline of DFA main (02)556-0000. Have you tried inquiring at DFA Lucena? They should have a reason for the delay.

      1. hi im noemie from pasay my ngofer po ng work sa kin sa us but snsbi nya na kailangan ko mgfillup ng endorsement form pra mpadala ng embassy sa la office na pgttrabahuan ko my bayad ba ang endorsement form at kailangan ba talaga un tanx

      2. Endorsement ng ano exactly? Maybe the agency is telling you that they will endorse you to the company. May bayad yun kasi sila ang magpapadala pero depende sa arrangement ninyo yan ng nag offer sayo. Agency ba sila?

  227. I’m from Cebu City. I processed my passport last February 8, 2011. The date of release is on March 16, 2011. Sabi nang AGENT ko, they will be the one to inform me if my passport is already available. Now, it’s already April 4, 2011 and wala pa yung passport ko. Been calling DFA Cebu many times already but still wala pa yung passport ko. Restless na ako kasi malapit na flight ko. I hope you can help me with my concern.

    1. Ghie, there should be an officer that handles passport release at the DFA there in Cebu. When you called ba sabi ng DFA wala pa passport mo or yung agent mo ang nagsabi na wala? Try going to the DFA personally and go to the releasing area, ask who you can inquire about regarding passports released through travel agencies (i’m assuming when you said agent, you meant travel agency). If there are delays on passport production, they may be able to inform you about the length of delays, if you need your passport soonest, then you can bring up the issue to the DFA passport director there. Hope this helps.

  228. I JUST WANT TO ASK IF YOU KNOW HOW MANY DAYS IT WILL TAKE FOR A PASSPORT TO BE DELIVERED FROM THE DATE OF RELEASED? THANKS!

    1. Passport delivery takes about 1 to 2 days depending on your location. If within Metro Manila that should take about a day after the release date. Outside metro would take an extra day or two at the most.

  229. I applied last Feb.11, 2011 sbi po nung “agent” na nag aayos passport ko wala pa daw at delayed ang mga passports..lampas 1 month na ako naghihintay, i’ll be going abroad for holidays wala pa ung passport..GrrrrHH do you know the hotline to find out whether released na ung passports? thanks

  230. bakit po yung passport ko hindi pa nadedeliver hanggang ngaun. feb 22, 2011 ang releasing date pero wala parin hanggang ngayon.

      1. helllopo uli c noemie to thanks sa reply un pong endrsement form gling sa dfa ba?ung friend ko po na tutulong sa kin ay ng sabi na 4000 ang endrsement form ung business prtner nya sa la ang mgfoforward sa us embassy ng docs ko ok lg ba na lgbyad ako ng 4000 sa knya?authrized ba cla manghingi ng bayad pra sa form na un?thanks po uli

      2. Noemie, pwede ka tumawag sa embassy and inquire about the endorsement. Hindi ko kasi mashadong alam yung tungkol sa endorsement. Mabuti na yung sigurado kang meron ngang endorsement bago ka maglabas ng pera. πŸ™‚

      3. Noemie, anong dokumento ba ang for endorsement? Kung malaman mo kung naong papeles ang for endorsement, pwede ko malaman kung ano talaga ito. Ang endorsement ba na sinasabi ay sulat o birthcertificate at records mo?

      4. ..gudafternun master panu ko po ba i follow up yung passport delivery?dpat january 17 ung date na dpat ay dumating na ng araw na yan bat ngaun wla pa?can u guide me how followup about this?halos 1 week na kc ko nagaantay wla pang dumadating na express dito.need ko na kc un!bC pa yung line nila..thankyou!

    1. hello po. good day..ask ko lang po about sa passport release ng kapatid ko sa DFA Lipa sabi po within the week release pina rush na niya tapos sabi nagkaron daw ng problem machine. ano po bang magandang gawin dun.. we keep on texting sa ibinigay nilang number pero di po nagrereply…thanks and more power…hope u can do something regarding this matter….

      1. Hi may problem talaga ang machine ng DFA ngayon kaya me delay sa production nila. Kung kailngan na talaga yung passport dalhin nyo yung mga proof of urgency na dokumento para ma request nyo na i prioritize yung passport nya.
