Because of this, DFA Secretary Allan Peter Cayetano implemented some reforms to fix the system and make passport application process fast and easy for all.

Including in this reform is the "passport on wheels" program. DFA is planning to implement longer work hours from 12-16 hours for DFA personnel to process more passport daily.

Cayetano added that 140 machines are expected to be delivered soon and will be deployed to satellite offices across the country and abroad to increase capacity. Each machine can process 80 to 100 passports in an 8-hour period.
