DFA Reiterates Warning vs Fixers

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

FIxer warning you should take note of. Tell your relatives specially those in the provinces or those who are going to get their passport for the first time. Kung walang papaloko, walang manloloko na tatagal sa mundo.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reiterated its warning against passport fixers after the recent arrest of nine fixers.

According to the DFA, the latest arrests stemmed from a civic-minded applicant who reported the fixers to the Office of Consular Affairs (DFA-OCA).

“If there has been a significant decrease in the presence of fixers along Libertad-Harrison streets, the DFA informs the public that there are still fixers who have been capitalizing on their knowledge of the application procedures to convince would-be victims who are mostly first timers from the provinces or newly-arrived overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), to give in to their offer of assistance for a fee,” the DFA said in a news release.

The DFA advised the public not to deal or transact any business with such fixers, and to report them instead to security officers in the area or to the nearest police station.

It appealed to the public to go through the legitimate application process and to “avoid fixers at all costs.”

The DFA said it is ready to assist all applicants with their concerns on passporting and other consular matters.

Those with questions may call the DFA at (632) 556-0000, (632) 737-1000 or e-mail epassport@dfa.gov.ph or passport.oca@yahoo.com. http://www.gmanews.tv/story/228825/nation/dfa-reiterates-warning-vs-fixers-after-9-nabbed

    1. Salamat sa info Delia.

      Wag tayo magpapaloko. Madali lang kumuha ng passport at hindi mo na kailangan ng ibang tao na tulungan ka para mapadali ito. Hindi na kailangan ng picture, doon mismo sa DFA kayo kukunan ng picture dahil may computer doon. Kapag sinabing kailangan mo ng ganito ganyan (picture, form, etc), hinid yan totoo. Sa DFA Appointment System, kukuha ka ng schedule mo, oras mo ng pagpunta at i-print mo ang application form mo na may detalye mo. Ito at ang requirements ang dadalhin mo. Walang picture, walang ibang babayaran maliban sa passport fee at delivery pagkatapos sa dulo ng proseso (kung gusto mo).

      Maging maalam para hindi maloko ng mga mapagsamantala. Sa DFA ASEANA ang passport processing, hindi sa Pasay (lumang DFA).
