I already have a passport but mistakenly filled out the “New Passport” application form. What should I do?

Last Updated on

On the day of the appointment, every applicant goes through a verification procedure to ensure all info and requirements are correct.

Simply explain to the DFA personnel your mistake and that your passport is for renewal.

Just make sure that you’ll bring your old passport with you. In case you have lost it, you will need to present a notarized affidavit of loss.

If you have doubts or other concerns, call the DFA Manila hotline at 02) 834 4000. For DFA satellite offices, please look for their corresponding contact details.
