yes it will still be accepted. but you are encouraged to upgrade it to avoid delays in processing:

PR-CBR- -2010 2 February 2010

HOLDERS OF THE GREEN PHILIPPINE PASSPORT ENCOURAGED TO APPLY FOR EARLY

RENEWAL TO AVAIL OF THE MACHINE READABLE PASSPORT (MRP)

-as the 1 APRIL 2010 ICAO deadline for issuing MRPs approaches

NEW YORK – The Philippine Consulate General New York encourages Filipinos citizens who

hold the old Philippine Passport (green jacket or older) to renew their passports as soon as possible,

as the deadline of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for all countries to issue

machine readable passports to their citizens, 1 April 2010, is less than two months away.

The MRP is up to global standards and is inter-operable with all participating countries,

providing benefits to travelers, airports and airlines, primarily in document security and ease of travel.

More than 20,000 MRPs have been issued by the Philippine Consulate General New York since it

began processing MRPs in June 2008. Those who have used their MRPs have been pleasantly

surprised that they are now able to just swipe the machine-readable portion of their passports at

check-in kiosks at various airports.

While bearers of the green Philippine Passport are assured that these will still be

recognized as bonafide travel documents until the Passport expires, after 1 April 2010 (the

deadline for all member states to issue MRPs) those using the green Philippine Passport may

experience some delay at international ports of entry while their data is being manually encoded by

inspectors. Those who wish to avoid the additional scrutiny may come to renew their passports even

if the current passport will still valid for some time.
