Passport Renewal

Finally, I managed to take time renewing my passport that was expired for two years. We don't have any plan going out of the country, but I think its a necessity for me to have a renewal (who knows, we might?!) better be prepared than having a last minute process and rush things.

I already set an online appointment,  I scheduled it  January next year and choose the earliest time available. Done printing my appointment confirmation, what i have to do next is to photocopy my old passport (pages 1-3 and last), ID's, and a copy of:
"Marriage Contract (MC) in Security Paper issued by NSO and Certified True Copy issued by the Local Civil Registrar if MC secpa is unreadable." I needed to present this one coz my old passport was way back when I was still single.

But hey, I also decided to apply for my toddler... I'll bring him with me when I go out to have our Passport size ID pic  taken. That was a last minute decision, on hopeful wishing that we could use our passport 1 or 2 years from now. I better start setting aside a substantial amount of money every payday for this future vacay.  
And so from now on, I'll be cutting out unnecessary purchases avoiding buying on impulse and save, save, save! 


  1. passport appplication?

    When applied for a passport, I just went to DFA and was flocked by fixers.

    Beware of fixers when you to get your passport.

  2. Hi Einz,

    I also have to renew our passport although we don't have plans yet to go out of the country, you are so right that we should better be prepared.

  3. oh, it just reminds me that my password will expire in 3 months time. good thing i visited your site, lol!

  4. I haven't heard of the online passport application thing. :) It's good that I saw it here. :)

  5. we just had our passports renewed too, well, during the first quarter of this year. we also had our son applied as we do have plans of going abroad. there were no more fixers present, everything was done by the DFA, even the mugshot for the passport. you passports will have electronic chips already. wow!

  6. @ pinx, just want to confirm: the personal appearance of minor is NOT needed, right?

  7. can't seem to find your tagboard anywhere so anyways lemme just comment here so i just wanted to say that i dropped by and TY for visiting my blog pls do visit more often:]

  8. Di ko lang sure kung kailangan ng personal appreance ng minor. Sabi kasi sa site, mother lang daw... kaya lang pano yung picture for the passport? I'll ask a friend and let you know. Kaka-apply lang nya for her new baby.

  9. if only...renew passport in my country as easy as that...will be good... :(

  10. It's a really good thing that we now have online passport application...less hassle.

  11. Hi thanks for following my blog, I added you on my links!!!

    Anyway I think it's a good move that you are going to get your passport soon. I got mine right after our graduation in college because I wanted to work abroad. It was a hassle pa nga because the line was so loooooong but I'm glad tapos na. Ingat!
