Watch Sec Cayetano Surprise Visit to DFA and Witnessed Applicant Waiting for 5 Hours

The new Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Sen. Allan Cayetano, visited the DFA Office of Consular Affairs in Aseana, Pasay City on Friday. Upon his visit, he witnessed long queue of passport applicants. 


During the surprise visit of the new DFA Secretary, he checked the passport center and the situation of those applying for passport. 

Aside from the long queue of applicants waiting in line for more than five hours just to apply for passport. 


He learned that some applicants have to wait for two months just to get an appointment. There are still 200 to 300 thousand applicants that are still waiting to get an online appointment.  




 Cayetano said he will give recommendations how to address  two problems he witnessed during the visit. The first would be the extremely crowded place where passport applicants have to endure. The other one would be the passport requirements. He added, that the government ID is a challenge for many applicants to provide. But he still has to look into it, and have some consultation. 


He vowed to look into the problems of passport applicants,  to speed up the process of application and releasing of passport.
