However, this new requirement only applies to Filipinos whose passport indicates only the "province of the birth.

In Gulf News Article, Vice Consul Elizabeth Picar Ramos said this is a part of a new advanced system that required for the place of birth to be keyed in, specifically the city or municipality of birth.

She explained that passport indicating provinces only will not be processed without a birth certificate.

"ADVERTISEMENTS"





“We are now required to input the city or municipality of birth. This is why we require our compatriots to bring their birth certificates so we can scan it together with the passport application and send it to Manila,”

“If the application does not have a scanned copy of the birth certificate, the printing gets suspended in Manila. So we do not accept or process applicants here unless they have all the required documents because lifting the suspension is a difficult process.”

Ramos cited an example that if an applicant's birth place in the passport is "Cebu", the system will not accept the application. It has to be the city or municipality in the province of Cebu mentioned in his birth certificate.
