Yes, you can still renew your Philippine passport anytime after its expiration date. However, if you’re an OFW or someone who travels a lot, DFA recommends renewing your passport at least a year before its expiration date. Your passport must have at least 7-8 months validity before you make or finalize any travel plans.
When it’s time for renewal, DFA accepts an expired or expiring Philippine passport as a valid ID so you don’t have to bring additional proof of identification. However, some DFA offices are said to have refused to accept expired passports so if you hold an expired one, make sure to bring an additional valid ID for your passport renewal.
