PASSPORT PROCESSING FOR OFWS: 30 MINUTES, RELEASING SHORTER TIME

Good news everyday here in the Philippines! 

Last August 15, Filipino's had a glimpse of the new "high security passport", and is now available to all especially to those who wished to work or travel abroad, according to Malacanang. 

Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar announces the printing of new passports starting August 15. The new passports have an improved design that features the regions of the country and an upgraded microchip security feature to capture the personal data of the applicant, invisible UV fluorescent ink and thread, and elaborate design when subject to UV light.
The APO Production Unit is tasked to produce the Philippine passports, and is a government owned and controlled corporation under the Presidential Communications Office.


The new passport that contains "intaglio printing" most commonly used in printing money or currency so it will not be faked and the "printing of the coat of arms using optical variable illusion ink where color varies at different angle” can now be claimed by applicants for only 5 days. 

Each passport is also added with security features like a microchip that contains personal data of the applicant or the passport holder, with an invisible UV fluorescent ink and thread and an elaborate design when placed in UV light.
