Who Can Skip Online Appointment And Use The DFA Courtesy Lane For Passport Processing?



Filipinos who want to apply for a passport or renew their passports can do it online by making an appointment.
Since walk-ins applicants are no longer allowed, the first step is to go to www.passport.gov.ph to secure a slot for an appointment schedule. The website is on a first-come, first-serve basis and tends to be already fully booked for several months back. This is why booking for a slot would allow you to be in two months ahead of the application. Overseas Filipino workers (OFW) are among the list of those who can apply for passport renewal without an appointment through the DFA Consular Office Courtesy Lane.
