Processing of Passport with 10-Year Validity Starts January 3

Passport is one of the most valid identification cards in the Philippines. Aside from its main purpose as one of the most important documents in traveling abroad, a passport is also an acceptable ID that can be used both in public and private transaction.    After President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Republic Act 10928 into law last August 2, the implementation of an act extending the validity of passport from five to 10 years comes into effect this year.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has already started processing of Philippine passport with 10 years validity last January 3.

A passport with 10-year validity can be availed, provided that the applicant is not a minor. Filipinos below 18 years old will still be issued the 5-year validity passports due to possible changes in facial features.

The DFA reiterated that both passport with 10 and five-years validity will use the current Philippine electronic passport booklets without any change in design, security features and a number of pages.

It added that passports issued prior to January 1, 2018, which has a five-year validity, would remain valid until its expiration date.

Passport fee remains P950 but the increase is possible in the future for its enhanced features.

The extended validity of passport is one of many promises fulfilled by President Duterte together with the extended validity of driver's license from two years to five years. Isn't it great?
