How to Renew Philippine Passport in Kuwait: 4 Steps.

1. Go to the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait.

No appointment is needed for Philippine passport renewal in Kuwait. Just visit the Embassy, line up, and submit the requirements. Arrive in the morning because renewal applications are accepted only until 12:30 p.m.

Tip: Apply for both passport renewal and extension if your passport will expire within the next six months or your iqama will expire within a year from your passport’s expiry date. This is to avoid payment of immigration fines.

Update: Starting October 2019, the DFA can no longer issue extension of Philippine passport validity. Click here for more info.


2. Pay the Philippine passport renewal fee.

Pay KWD 19.50 for the passport fee at the cashier.


3. Have your photo and biometrics captured.

Make sure to double-check your information that the staff has encoded in the computer.


4. Claim your new Philippine passport.

The minimum processing time for passport renewals in Kuwait is 40 days. Some overseas Filipinos are able to get their new passport earlier in one month.

You may choose to personally pick up your passport in the Embassy or have it delivered to your present or home address.

When you receive your new passport, transfer your Kuwait residence visa to it right away so that you won’t be asked to pay immigration penalties.
