Old DFA PASSPORTS to be Phased Out by 2015

One of the most searched blog post I have is that of DFA PASSPORT RENEWAL. That said, I get a lot of queries about it, some of the questions I couldn't answer anymore. Hindi po ako nagta-trabaho sa DFA kaya diko masagot yung mga complicated

One of the latest inquiry I got was about the plan to phase out old machine readable passports by 2015 so as only the e-passport will be accepted.

This is the statement from the Department of Foreign Affairs.

"Filipinos holding machine readable passports, or those with green or maroon covers, meanwhile will no longer be allowed to apply for validity extension beyond October 31, 2014.They must instead apply for a new e-Passport (dark maroon) as soon as possible before the expiry of their current MRRP (green) or MRP (maroon) passports," the statement said.

"Those who fail to do so will likely encounter difficulty at immigration checks when traveling through any ports of entry around the world after October 2015." 

Philippine e-passports

Still confused?

Look at the cover of your passport. There are three variations

Dark Maroon

If you are still using the Green and/or Maroon Passport, then they will be phased out by 2015. You need to have the Dark Maroon Passport or the e-passport. If you have applied for a new passport or renewal just two years ago like my wife did or better yet last year, then there's no need to worry. Chances are , you are, you already have the e-passport.

Need to Renew Your Passport or Apply for your first?
