Obtaining a PSA ROM for Passport Renewal

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am trying to renew my passport at the Los Angeles Consulate.

 

I have already reported my marriage back in 2017. My passport is about to expire in 6 months so I would to renew it. I only have a ROM on hand; I did not realize that at some point, a ROM PSA would be needed so I am finding out how to obtain one.

 

On the PSA Serbilis website, I requested and paid for one, however, the following information was required from me:

 

1) REFERENCE NUMBER

(2) DISPATCH NUMBER

(3) DISPATCH DATE

(4) TRANSMITTAL DATE

 

It is not clear to me how to obtain the information above? It just drops me on the DFA website.

 

Also, even after being married, my last name never changed on any of my government IDs and current passport. Do I still even need to present a PSA ROM?

Those numbers & dates are notated on the copy that the consulate returned to you upon completion of ROM.  Hopefully you kept that.

 

If you name has not changed for your passport, then NO the PSA marriage certificate isn't needed.   Just complete the normal renewal.

 Thank you for the response.

 

Yes, I did keep the ROM copy that was returned to me. However, I do not see the numbers on there. The only numbers I see are the dates and ID # (e.g. ROM-LA-xxx). But good news, DFA did get back to me pretty quickly and provided me with that info.

 

Anyway, another requirement is the Passport Application Form. On there, it asks:

 

1) Spouse's name

2) Reasons for name change - which then has follow up choices of: A) PH Govt Reported Marriage B) PH Court Order

 

Since there is no name change, hopefully, they will no longer ask for a ROM PSA. Sometimes, there might be miscommunication amongst them that as long as you're married, regardless if there's a name change or not, you're required to present ROM PSA.

If you aren't doing a name change then you don't need to submit supporting documents for this.

You are correct if you are NOT changing your name then anything to do with the ROM is not needed at all. You can renew your passport in your maiden name without issues.
