Yes, but only under specific circumstances.
According to DFA, the validity of an expired Philippine passport can be extended if:
- The passport expired within the last calendar year.
- The passport is not an ePassport (maroon color with microchip symbol in front).
- The passport is already scheduled for renewal through the online appointment system.
- The passport holder has already purchased tickets to travel due to a medical emergency or sudden death of a loved one, provided that it will be supported by verifiable proof/documents.
If your request for extension has been denied, and you really need to travel to the Philippines ASAP, you may request for a temporary travel document from the Consulate.
The temporary travel document only permits one-way flight to the Philippines, where you can then renew your passport.
