Please be guided by the following answers to the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) on PASSPORTS.

Q: When should I renew my passport?
    Answer:

A passport with at least six (6) months’ validity is a standard requirement for international travel and/or work permit renewal in France or Monaco; in some cases, two-year validity is required. In view of the turnaround periodfor the manufacture of a Philippine passport (around two months), Filipinos living overseas are advised to renew their passports several months before expiry. We recommend eight months, or preferably, 9 months before its expiration to account for any possible delays in the transmission of the passport to the Embassy.

While the passport is being manufactured, you may continue to hold on to your present passport. This will ensure that you will be able to leave France or Monaco for any emergency. Your present passport may be cancelled (1) at the time of application and returned to you OR (2) when claiming the new passport.

Filipino professionals who go on frequent travels are advised to submit their applications even earlier, and have their passport renewed long before all the pages have been used up.

There is no option for an applicant to apply for a passport with more than the standard number of pages under the current Philippine passport system; the number of pages is fixed.

Q: I am in urgent need of a passport and cannot wait for eight weeks. Please “expedite” my passport.
    Answer:

The Embassy regrets to inform you that there is no “expedite” process for Philippine Foreign Service Posts. Since all Philippine passports are printed in Manila, the Embassy is unable to accommodate “expedite” requests. However, while the new passport is being made in Manila, you will continue to hold your present passport, which means you can still use it for employment purposes or for travel, if it is still valid. (Note: On your return to the Embassy to claim your new passport, your old passport will be cancelled, therefore make sure to bring it with you.)

Q: I need to renew my passport urgently, because my residence permit is expiring (or, there is an emergency in the Philippines; or, I have a sudden business travel to another country), and I forgot to check my passport and just realized that it now has less than six-month validity. Can you just extend my passport’s validity without having to renew my passport?
    Answer:

The stand-alone “extension” of passports is not allowed by present regulations. On the other hand, you may request for the issuance of a Travel Document in the event of an emergency in the Philippines. Your request will only be considered by the Embassy after a careful evaluation, where you will have to prove that there is an emergency. The Travel Document is valid for single use only and for one direct flight to the Philippines.

Q: The waiting time for passport renewal in the Embassy is too long for me. Is there another option, because I need a passport quickly whenever I want it renewed?
    Answer:

Passport applicants may choose to have their passports renewed in the Philippines, when they visit the Philippines on a sufficiently long vacation. The turnaround for a passport renewal in the Philippines is much shorter, around ten to fifteen working days. Several locations in malls have also been opened, to make passport renewal more convenient. Appointments in the Philippines may be scheduled online at this website (www.passport.com.ph)

Q: May I know if my passport has arrived already from Manila?
    Answer:

The normal processing time for a passport to arrive from Manila is eight (8) weeks. You may call at the 8th week after your application or send us an email with the subject “Update on Passport Arrival” to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; please include in the message your full name and the date your application was encoded at the Embassy.

Q: I have decided to quit my job in France/Monaco, and will be returning to the Philippines for good. But when I checked, my passport is less than six months valid. Will I have problems at the immigration here in France/Monaco, and over there in the Philippines upon entry?
    Answer:

There should be no problem in your case since you are returning to the Philippines for good and will not be returning to France/Monaco.

Q: I will be giving birth here in France/Monaco. What documents should I prepare for my baby’s passport?
    Answer:

The requirements for the Report of Birth may be viewed at the Embassy’s website: www.parispe.dfa.gov.ph

Q: I am now married and would like to use my husband’s surname. How can I apply for a passport with a new surname?
    Answer:

Please refer to the requirements on Report of Marriage which may be viewed at the Embassy’s website.

Q: Can my children go to the Embassy for passport renewal with a neighbor or friend to accompany them?
    Answer:

Minor children must be accompanied by a parent or their legal guardian. Please note that minor children will have to be present at the Embassy, as their biometrics will be captured.
