4 months old baby US passport only

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello my fellow vjers.

Due to my father's death we will be in the Philippines next week. My question is, we wanted to bring our daughter with us. She is 4 months old and the quickest process we could get for her is her US passport. I am a Filipina and my husband is a USC. Is it possible that my daughter could travel with her US passport alone? Answers will be greatly appreciated.

First, I would like to offer my condolences for you and your family. I am sorry for your loss. (F)

Yes, your daughter just needs her U.S. passport to travel. A tourist visa is valid up to 21 days. However, if you need to stay longer, you may avail of Balikbayan visa.

Balikbayan visa privilege is extended to the spouse and minor children of former Filipinos. You, your husband and child may avail of this visa. You would need to show 1) your current/expired Philippine passport, 2) copy of your marriage certificate, and 3) copy of your child's birth certificate. You would need to invoke this privilege when you arrive at Philippine customs. Balikbayan visa is valid for up to one (1) year.

You can verify this information by contacting Philippine Consulate General - Chicago. This office has jurisdiction over Mississippi.
