Passport renewal

28 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife (has green card) needs to get her PI passport renewed.  We have an appt. in LA for the end of July.  I reading thru some stuff I got confused.

"In case of woman married in the U.S.: one (1) original and one (1) photocopy of the Report of Marriage (ROM) issued less than a year by the Philippine Consulate where the marriage took place. If ROM is more than 1 year old, bring original and photocopy of PSA ROM. In case of woman married in the Philippines: one (1) original or certified true copy and one (1) photocopy of Marriage Contract duly authenticated by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)"

 

We were married in US 4 years ago. Were we supposed to tell someone in the Philippines that she got married & that is the PSA ROM they want, or do they want the Ceomar that says she was single & so she was available to get married?

 

It looks like they want nothing in advance - but we are driving 6 hours to get to consulate, so I want it right the first time...

You did not report your marriage to the closest Philippine consulate where you got married?

This is my problem now in Toronto. We got married here in Ontario and didn’t know I had to report our marriage at the Philippine consulate here. We were waiting for me to get to California and report at Phil Consulate in LA. I only found out later that report the marriage at the Philippine embassy where wE got married. Now we have to pay more because we are reporting late. It’s been over a year since we got married. 

 

We will need an affidavit of late report of marriage or something like that. Then the consulate will send the report to PSA in the Philippines. I haven’t done it yet. According to them, it will take months before I can get a PSA copy.

I will pay more, but where is the form I need to send to tell them I am married?

Check the Phil embassy website for LA. If it is the same as Toronto website, you will be able to download forms from there.

I see 42.50 for form & another 42.50 for being late....

It is actually really easy to do either in person or in the mail. Since you are in Las Vegas the closest consulate for you is in Los Angeles.

We filed at the 11th hour! LOL.  They sent it back (I don't remember why), and I resubmitted it again and then got the receipt and official report.  It is good for the AOS interview to have that certificate filed as it also shows you are in a serious relationship.

We filed after we had already filed for ROC.

Do you know the length of time it takes to renew her passport? and any indication of time spent at the consulate?

Since the OP has a month to go for their passport apt, they should file quick for the ROM and have the Cert in hand when they go.
