Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had this case before or anyone would be able to give me answer...

I am Petitioning my mom, she is now in process of getting a passport however they are asking for at least 1 government issued ID which she does not have :(, she only have all the supporting documents.

She can apply for an SSS ID but was told that she has to wait for 2mos before it become available.

Now my question is, will be able to get a passport with only supporting documents on hands, or we have to wait until she gets one.

Her case is now with NVC just waiting for case number and IIN for be assigned, I am very worried that this might put us on hold :(

Please help...

Thank you

it is very hard to get Philippine passport, my fiance went to DFA cebu just last week, he has all the requirement listed in their website. He has NSO birth certificate, postal ID, NBI clearance, Police clearance, brgy clearance, philhealth, sss number, TIN number ; unfortunately, they need more.. they said NBI clearance is just a supporting document, POSTAL ID is not valid, They need SSS ID, MDR for the philhealth... Since his birth is late registration, they need baptismal certificate..He also has old employment ID, as what their website shows it can be one of his ID, but DFA office doesn't accept it. It is very frustrating!!! :ranting::protest:

My mom went back to DFA Lipa Batangas, and she was told not to push her documents as it will not do any to help her get passport.

My mom is a fulltime housewife, did not work at all and way too far to be considered as senior citizen, obtaining all primary ID they have listed is really challenge.

My head i spinning, i am worried that this might hold us :(

What i can suggest is to go and see an agency who is processing passport..they are everywhere now..its more expensive but less requirements needed..for my daughter they need only her bc and baptismal cert..it depends on agency but i do believe what your mother got will be enough.goodluck Edited by hardrockangel

maybe you can ask some agents that help process a passport. it will be costly though. or are you close to manila? maybe your mom can try the DFA manila, they are the main office so they might have an exception.. My mom too had that difficulty before. but she has voter's ID only.. she did get sss ID and PHILhealth that's why she was able to get the passport.

Hello,

My mom has the ff:

  • NSO Marriage Contract
  • NBI Clearance
  • Police Clearance
  • Barangay Clearance

she was told by DFA Lipa Batangas that the above is insufficient and that they would still need a Voters ID. They did not accept her High School Form 137 they said its too old :(

Obtain a postal id for your mom. Nso birth certificate. Philhealth id. And for the voters id if they cant issue it immediately because it seems that it will take years before they produce it, ask for a letter from them. I think they can print out the voters info with the picture.

If it doesnt work in LIpA dfa... Try another province :) although they are the same agency it seems that it is still depending on the mood of the person assisting. Try the malls..

But try tne agency too.
