Need passport within 2 weeks? It’s just a breeze getting this thru COURTESY LANE at Department of Foreign Affairs Passport Appointment building at Pasay City. You don’t need to get an appointment online because you just have to walk in and get your documents ready.
You are eligible to process your new passport or renew your old passport at DFA Passport Courtesy Lane if you are one of the following:
Regular government employees
Qualified dependent of government employees
Retired government employees
Incumbent elected officials and barangay level
You have endorsement from House of Representatives or Senate
You have referrals made from DFA employee
Here are the steps on how to secure your passport at DFA Passport Courtesy Lane:
Then proceed to the Payment Section and pay your processing fee.
-P950 for regular processing
( 15 days working days excluding weekend)
-P1200 for express (7 days working days)
Upon payment, wait for your number to be called at Data Capturing/Encoding Section. This part took us 4 hours due to long queue of applicants. My advice: eat your lunch and just return after an hour or two. Foodchains such as MCDO & Greenwich are lining across the DFA building.

After picture taking, you may approach the Delivery section just outside the Passport Enrollment Center if you opt for passport delivery. You may skip this part.

Just pay P150 for delivery charge. Your passport will be delivered to your address one day upon the release date.
If you’ll process your passport during Mondays, expect more applicants, so better come during midweek. Don’t forget to bring your NSO Copy of Birth Certificate which is the main requirement.
