Passport in Cebu

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. My fiancée went today at the former office of DFA (not the one at pacific mall.) she had all requirements except for school record / voters affidavit. She talked with this lady at the table and paid up front 500P and left with this ladys number to set up an appointment for Friday once she comes with either a shool record/ votes affidavit. The lady said for rush order 2000 all in all. I guess I missed that last requirement it wasn't really listed in any guides. Does this sound legitimate ?

edit: there was no line & its a fixer, they're expensive so she'll try to get the 500p back and ill just set up an appointment online myself, what im asking is, the 4th req school rec/voters affidavit required?

I don't think you need to pay that much for a passport. Your fiancee can just bring 1 valid id, her NSO birth certificate and perhaps NBI clearance. Normal processing costs 950 php, I guess. You can also opt for express processing. That would cost 1,200 php and your fiancee can get her passport after 25 days .

No online appt in CEbu. She has to be there early in Pacific Mall in Mandaue.. I think-not sure though, if you only have 1 govt issued ID, that's when they will ask for TOR or school records. My brother was also required to present TOR when he applied for a passport for the first time last year and he was not even asked for an NBI clearance. My bro has only 1 ID w/c is his drivers license..
