DFA-OCA in ASEANA to Open on Saturdays.
In our effort to meet the huge demand for 10-year passports, the Office of Consular Affairs in ASEANA shall be open to passport applications every Saturday starting 10 February 2018, from 8am-5pm.
Everyone is encouraged to make an appointment via the DFA’s Online Appointment System.
Strictly NO walk-in applicants shall be entertained.
NO Courtesy Lane facility shall be made available.
Other services such as Authentication and Consular Records are likewise NOT available.
However, non-passport services and courtesy lane facilities shall continue to be offered at all mall-based DFA Regional and Satellite offices every Saturday.
The passport application fee of Php1,200.00 applies.
DFA-ASEANA's new Saturday operations complement the Passport on Wheels which has been launched on 15 January. The weekly Mobile Passport Service is also ongoing.
DFA will soon open additional eight (8) consular offices in key cities and provinces, and implement an e-payment system.
