DFA required documents to get passport for K2 son

My Filipino fiancee has made an appointment for her 8 year old son to apply for a passport at your DFA main office in Manila. She made this appointment through the DFA's online appointment system. We have read the instructions carefully and I think we have prepared the required documents properly, but we do not understand the meaning of, or how to prepare what the DFA calls, "a Notarized Affidavit of Support and Consent to travel from either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / from mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)".

I don't think this has anything to do with U.S. State Departments I-134 Affidavit of support. This "notarized affidavit of support and consent to travel is something that is specific to the Philippines DFA".

Yes, we are getting a passport for my fiancee's 8 year old son because we will be pursuing a K2 Visa for him at the same time my fiancee interviews for the K1 Visa.

I tried to e mail the DFA's main office in the Philippines, but the e mail would not go through. I will attempt to call them on the phone on Monday, but I am hoping that there is a Visjourney member here who can share some knowledge about this DFA requirement.

We received our NOA2 about 7 days ago. The Visajourney-members who have offered us knowledge and advice have been hugely helpful to us. Thanks to you all.

They don't need that because the mother is present with her child during the passport application. The only time you will need that is if the child is applying without the mother (since the child is illegitimate).

For Minors (below 18 years old)

General Requirements:

Confirmed appointment (except for 1 year old and below)
Personal appearance of the minor applicant

Personal appearance of either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / of mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)
Original Birth Certificate of minor in Security Paper issued by NSO or Certified True Copy of Birth Certificate issued by the Local Civil Registrar and duly authenticated by NSO. Transcribed Birth Certificate from the LCR is required when entries in NSO Birth Certificate are blurred or unreadable. Report of Birth duly authenticated by NSO is required if minor was born abroad.
Document of identity with photo, if minor is 8-17 years old (for first time and
renewal applicant) such as School ID or Form 137 with readable dry seal

For minor applicants who never attended school, a Notarized Affidavit of Explanation executed by either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / by mother (if minor is an illegitimate child) detailing the reasons why the child is not in school, is required
Marriage Certificate of minor's parents duly authenticated by NSO
Notarized Affidavit of Support and Consent to travel from either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / from mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)
Original and photocopy of valid passport of the person traveling with the minor
Photocopy of valid passport of either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / of mother (if minor is an illegitimate child) or identification documents (Please refer to List of Acceptable IDs)


The red ones are enough requirements for the son.

Sorry, correction. If mom already has a passport, bring it together with a photocopy. It should be fine.

If mom doesn't have a passport, bring any of the acceptable IDs.

That's all we submitted when we applied for our 3 kids' passports.  I was with them at DFA.  They are illegitimate too because my BF was petitioned by his dad as "unmarried son over 21".  He had to maintain his single status in order to immigrate.  We got married after he got his green card.

The "a Notarized Affidavit of Support and Consent to travel from either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / from mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)"

is only applicable if she will not be travelling with the kid..

I also done that letter and the father of my son sign for it but the DFA during appointment will not be asking for it, otherwise if she will not be travelling with the kid..

Fiancee is taking her 4 yr old daughter to get passport next week. Since child is only 4 does that mean we need everything listed in red EXCEPT "document of identity with photo, if minor is 8-17...?" Or do we still need something here?

 

Thank you!!

Yes.  Her baptismal certificate may be presented, in place of that photo ID.

So did they ask for the affidavit of support?

 

Dear Apple.

 

I trust your words.   Thank you.

 


Thanks for this info, Apple. I will apply for my son's passport in Ali Mall on Aug 7. This saved me a lot of time :)

That's all we submitted when we applied for our 3 kids' passports.  I was with them at DFA.  They are illegitimate too because my BF was petitioned by his dad as "unmarried son over 21".  He had to maintain his single status in order to immigrate.  We got married after he got his green card.

 


Very helpful information. Will save me a lot of time :)

The "a Notarized Affidavit of Support and Consent to travel from either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / from mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)"

is only applicable if she will not be travelling with the kid..

I also done that letter and the father of my son sign for it but the DFA during appointment will not be asking for it, otherwise if she will not be travelling with the kid..
