I have an urgent need to travel but my passport has already expired. Can I extend its validity?

Last Updated on 07/31/2020 by FilipiKnow

Effective October 2019, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) will no longer extend the validity of Philippine ePassports in compliance with the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). It’s highly recommended that passport holders renew their passports at least one year before their expiration dates. 

However, if your passport has expired and you have an urgent need to travel to the Philippines, you can seek assistance from the embassy to issue you a travel document.
