Also, please take note that effective 01 July 2016, pursuant to Department of Foreign Affairs guidelines, all applicants for passport renewal holding manually-scripted passports, machine-readable ready passports (MRRP) and machine-readable passports (MRP) are required to submit the following:

1.  Actual old passport;

Dual citizenship applicants who also wish to apply for a Philippine passport after their oath taking should indicate their intention in the cover letter sent with their dual citizenship application and comply with the applicable passport application requirements.

All applications are strictly by appointment only. Appointments will be automatically scheduled as they are received. No request for specific time slots will be entertained. Those applicants who are not able to secure confirmed appointments will not be accommodated.

The final list of all applicants, with the confirmed appointment schedule will be posted at the Embassy’s website http://www.philippineembassy-usa.org, a few days before the scheduled outreach.
