How to Renew a Lost and Expired Philippine Passport

Jan 24 (1)

A basic requirement for passport renewal is the submission of the expired (or expiring passport) so the DFA can cancel its validity.  But what if the old passport has gone missing?

Here’s how you can renew a lost and expired passport:

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • Personal appearance.
  • Confirmed appointment.
  • No need to submit a passport size photo.
  • Submit same documents required for first-time passport applicants.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS in case the passport was lost and cannot be found:

  • Submit a Notarized Affidavit of Loss (with detailed explanation on when, where, and how the passport got lost).
  • If the lost passport is still valid, submit a Police Report.
  • If available, bring a photocopy of the first page of the lost passport.

Take note that there will be a 15-day clearing period prior to the processing of an application for replacement of a lost valid passport.

IN CASE PASSPORT WAS ALREADY DECLARED LOST BY THE APPLICANT BUT EVENTUALLY WAS FOUND AND RETURNED TO THE APPLICANT:

  • Submit a Notarized Affidavit of Retrieval (with detailed explanation on when, where, and how passport was found).
  • Original and photocopy of the first and last page of the passport.

IN CASE OF MUTILATED OR DAMAGED PASSPORTS:

  • Submit a Notarized Affidavit of Mutilation (with a detailed explanation of when, where, and how the passport got mutilated or damaged).
  • Original and photocopy of the first and last page of mutilated or damaged passport.

IN CASE APPLICANT WAS ISSUED A TRAVEL DOCUMENT:

  • Original Travel Document
  • Submit a Notarized Affidavit of Explanation Regarding Issuance of Travel Document (with a detailed explanation of when, where, and why the applicant was issued a travel document).
  • Original and photocopy of the first and last page of canceled passport (if the passport is still in the possession of the applicant).

It is not advisable to pose as a first-time passport applicant if you lost your passport.  The DFA will see your previous passport details anyway and you will be required to submit the same documents (affidavit of loss, etc.) as listed above.  Your appointment will be wasted and you may run the risk of being placed under questionable applications.

Tsaka ano ba sekreto para makakuha ng time ako ng time appointment po online sobrang hirap po kasi. Thanks hope to hear from you.

    1. Hi Jane,

      Yes, kung gusto mong ipabago na ang last name mo sa passport mo, you need to bring a copy of your PSA birth certificate and your PSA marriage certificate.

      Regarding the best time to secure an appointment, according to the DFA, 9am and 12noon ang best time get an appointment online kasi those are the times when the system cleans the dates of appointments that were not confirmed.

      Good luck!

  5. Hi,

    My passport is expired last year (July 2017) and also marital status is changed from single to married. Does my renewal will be applied for new passport?

    1. Hi Dave,

      PWede ka nang magpa renew ng passport mo.

      Since wala namang civil status sa passport, wala kang kailangang ipabago.

      Ang mga female passport holders lang na married na ang may option to change their last name from their maiden last name to their married last name. Option lang ito, hindi sila mandated magpalit ng apelido kahit kasal na sila.
