How to Apply for an Adopted Child’s Passport

3 Mar 14

The DFA has special requirements for an adopted minor child’s passport application.  Apart from the core requirements, as featured in a previous blog, the following supporting documents must also be presented.  We are also including the additional requirements for illegitimate children whose mother is deceased and the father is unknown.

  1. If the applicant is an illegitimate child and the mother is deceased and the father is absent or unknown:
  • Personal appearance of the minor applicant and adult guardian.
  • PSA birth certificate of minor applicant.
  • Valid passport or valid government-issued ID of the adult guardian.
  • DSWD clearance
  • Affidavit of Guardianship.
  1. If the minor applicant has undergone the process of domestic adoption:
  • Personal appearance of the minor applicant and adoptive parents.
  • PSA birth certificate of minor applicant.
  • Valid passport or valid government-issued ID of adoptive parents.
  • Court Decree of Adoption.

If the applicant is not accompanied by adoptive parents during the application process, the applicant must submit a Special Power of Attorney (SPA) executed by the adoptive parents, designating the minor’s companion to assist in the application process.  The SPA must be authenticated by the Philippine Embassy/Consulate if executed abroad.

If the applicant is not traveling with adoptive parents, the applicant must submit DSWD clearance and Affidavit of Support and Consent executed by the adoptive parents.  The Affidavit of Support and Consent must be authenticated by the Philippine Embassy/Consulate if executed abroad.

The above is lifted from the www.passport.gov.ph website.  Visit us again tomorrow for more information on the requirements for passport applicants with special cases.
