Those passports that need extension due to various emergencies are usually granted this request but please be advised of this announcement by PCG Dubai. Better to renew your passport early.

Announcement by PCG Dubai
Please be advised that you should book an appointment earlier because sometimes the nearest dates might not be available. We’ve had some Filipinos who tried to book an appointment online and the next 2 months were not available because it’s already been filled by other applications. Sometimes, it takes 3 months or more for the vacant spot so better to renew your passport early.
