DFA passport service moving to new location

Starting March 8, Filipinos applying for passports may do so at the Department of Foreign Affairs’ (DFA) Office of Consular Affairs at the corner of Bradco and Macapagal Avenues in the Aseana Business Park, near the Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

Authentication services will be transferred to the new building on March 4, while all passport operations will transferred there on March 8.

The new 7,000-square meter, four-storey building is a few blocks away from the DFA main building in Pasay City.

The new building is part of the ongoing modernization program undertaken by the government to improve its frontline services.

These include harnessing new technologies in passport and visa issuances and streamlined procedures in the authentication of documents.

To ensure quick service, the DFA said applicants should check the passport requirements and secure an online appointment at www.dfa.gov.ph, or call the consular helpline number (02-556-0000) or DFA trunk line (02-834-4000).

Applications may also be filed with the DFA’s 19 regional consular and satellite offices.
