How to Renew Philippine Passport in USA: An Ultimate Guide

Last Updated on 10/18/2021 by FilipiKnow

As the number of Filipinos adopted by Uncle Sam grows, so do the immigrants applying for Philippine passport renewal in USA every year.

While the Philippine Embassy provides all the necessary information you need to renew your passport, we’ve found a need to present it in a way that is more organized and easier to understand.

US cities/states differ in terms of procedure and requirements so we’ve dedicated separate sections for each.

Let’s now discuss important guidelines and reminders that apply to Philippine passport renewal applicants living in specific US states.

Renewing Philippine Passport in the USA – An Overview.

The Philippines, through its Embassies or Consulates all over the US, now issues electronic passport (ePassport) to all its citizens. This ePassport has a built-in chip or microchip technology and other security features that make it tamper-proof and compliant with the security standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The microchip in the Philippine ePassport holds the passport holder’s vital personal data including his digital signature, biometrics, biographical information found on the passport’s data page, and the unique identification number of the chip itself–all of which are essential in verifying the passport holder’s identity at every international port of entry.

The Philippine Embassy and Consulates in the US require applicants to secure an online appointment for passport renewal.

No need to bring photos to the Philippine Embassy/Consulate as your picture, fingerprints and digital signature will all be taken on-site.

After receiving and processing your Philippine passport for renewal, the Embassy/Consulate General will then send it to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila for printing. All in all, Philippine passport renewal in the US takes a minimum of 6 weeks to complete–from submitting your requirements to receiving the new passport. 

Therefore, if you have a Philippine passport that is about to expire within the next 6 months, and you’re planning to travel within the same period, it’s highly recommended to renew it as soon as possible. In addition to the waiting time for the new passport to arrive, you should also take into consideration the recent announcement of the DFA that they can no longer extend the validity of expired ePassports.

Tips and Warnings.

1. Plan your trip to the Embassy/Consulate beforehand.

The Embassy or Consulate may be too far from where you live. Plan how you’ll get there and where you’ll stay overnight if needed.

You might need to book a flight and accommodation or ask to stay with a Filipino friend living in the area.

Have an itinerary for the day, especially if you’re traveling with your family. Plan your side-trips, too. Consider visiting parks and museums near the consular office when you’re done with your passport renewal.

For example, if you’ll apply in Washington, DC, you may explore the White House, Washington Monument, and National Geographic Museum.

Near the Consulate in Chicago, visit free tourist attractions such as the Buckingham Fountain, The Bean, and Chicago Riverwalk.

2. Prepare cash, US Postal Money Order, or cashier’s check for the passport fee payment.

Philippine passport renewal in the US costs USD 60 at the Embassy or Consulate and USD 70 at consular outreach missions.

If you’ll pay in a postal money order or cashier’s check, make it payable to the “Embassy of the Philippines” or “Philippine Consulate General,” whichever is applicable. 

3. Provide an appropriate return envelope for mailing your passport.

Get a Priority Mail/Priority Mail Express envelope from the US Postal Service (USPS). The USPS envelope is the standard requirement for passport mailing by the Philippine Embassy and Consulates in the US. Also, it’s the cheapest option compared to private couriers in America.

Follow the Embassy’s/Consulate’s specifications for the self-addressed stamped envelope. The USPS envelope should include the following (Otherwise, you might encounter problems in receiving the mail):

  • Appropriate postage stamps
  • Tracking number
  • Your name and mailing address written legibly on the envelope
  • Your original old passport
  • Official receipt/Claim stub

Before your scheduled appointment, check with the Embassy/Consulate regarding its protocols on submission of return envelope for passport mailing.

Depending on where you’ll renew your passport, you may be asked to bring your return envelope to the Embassy/Consulate on your appointment day and submit it along with other requirements. 

Or you may be required to mail your return envelope to the Embassy/Consulate only when your new passport is available for release.
