Renewals could be a lot more easier just like capturing the photo of your passport, taking a selfie and when they verified your face with the passport photo, they can already mail the passport to you.

The service, however, is limited to those who applied beginning August 2016 as the previous passport contractor turned over corrupted and obsolete data, Cayetano said.

He added the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has to take biometrics again.

"Once we have the biometrics, there will be no need to appear at DFA offices and we can do the renewals online," Cayetano said.

Normal passport processing by June
Cayetano also said two new regional consular offices will open in March, while six passport on wheels with five machines each will arrive by June to help normalize the processing of passports and address 60 to 80 percent of the backlog.

He said six more regional consular offices will open nationwide between March and June.
