Hello and TIA to everyone,

 

My Phil passport had expired and wanting to renew, and I'm residing in Florida.  When I read the consulate website, it said Florida is under Washington DC and one of the requirements is a personal appearance.  But when I called their landline, the voice prompt said that there is no need for an appointment, and that we can just do a walk-in.  I just wanted to know which was which.  Can I just really go in person to the Washington DC consulate with my documents without an appointment?  Thanks again!!!

You can do a appointment or wait for a consular outreach

fyi on the website... you'd be better off waiting for outreach in Florida. There's still some hope for Jax, Tampa and Miami this year. Just be aware of the opening day for qless appointments.

PUBLIC ADVISORY: SUSPENSION OF NON EMERGENCY CONSULAR SERVICES

 
In view of the declarations of states of emergency in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, and to help limit the community spread of COVID-19, the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C. is suspending effective immediately all non-emergency consular services at its premises.
 

STATEMENT ON CONSULAR OUTREACH MISSIONS FOR 2020

Given the growing health concerns over COVID-19, and considering the paramount importance of ensuring the health and safety of our consular staff and the transacting public, the Embassy will make a determination on whether to postpone future outreach missions no later than thirty (30) days before each mission’s currently published schedule. Clients are requested to wait for such determination before making any travel plans or filing for any leaves of absence.

No appointment was needed however they may change that rule when they reopen from the COVID closing, but expect to spend several hours there.  Make sure to have a Stamped Self Addressed envelope for them to mail the passport to you unless you have an urge to drive back to DC again.

Miami is just like Atlanta, an Honarary consulate.  Passport services at these locations are only rendered when they are hosting an outreach event.
