The Philippine Embassy, Pretoria would like to inform all Filipinos under its jurisdiction that all green Philippine passports (non-machine readable, including those whose period of validity extends beyond 2010) will be valid until the stated date of expiry.

This advisory has been issued to allay the confusion caused by recent erroneous information circulating on the Internet.

However, the Embassy reminds its nationals that a passport with at least six months’ validity is required in order to travel outside of the Philippines.  Filipinos are advised to renew their passports at least six months prior to its expiry in order to avoid unnecessary inconvenience.  It takes approximately six (6) weeks to process the new machine-readable passport.

CONSULAR SERVICES - Passport FAQs

Q.  How long does it take to process an application for an e-Passport?

For ePassport - 6 weeks if the documents are complete. The processing is completed in Manila which accounts for the extended period.

Application for a replacement of a lost passport may take longer. The Embassy undertakes a verification of the lost passport which normally takes a maximum of 15 working days, if the lost passport was issued by the Philippine Embassy in Pretoria, and 21 working days if not.

After the verification period, an applicant will be called for an interview and asked to submit all the necessary documents. Processing takes between 4-6 weeks.
