Guide to Renewing Children’s Philippine Passport (5 Years Old & Below)

Before making plans to renew your child’s passport, check its validity first. It’s always a good idea to have at least 6 months validity left on your child’s passport before having it renewed, to ensure that you have ample time before making any travel plans.

Then, be sure to prepare the following required documents:

  • Original Old Passport
  • Photocopy of Passport Data Page (2 copies)
  • Accomplished Passport Application Form
  • Original Birth Certificate in Security Paper issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)
  • Marriage Certificate of Parents duly authenticated by PSA
  • Photocopy of Valid Passport of Either Parent

Once you arrive at the Philippine Consulate, here is the procedure for passport renewal:

  1. Proceed to the Passport Processing Cabin, where they will verify you and your child’s documents.
  2. Go to the Cashier and pay the passport renewal fee.
  3. Go to the Encoding Area for biometrics and photo capturing.
  4. After 2 weeks or so, check the availability of your child’s passport at the Philippine Consulate website.
  5. When the passport is available, proceed to the Releasing Section at the Consulate. Present your receipt and the old passport to claim the new one.

There’s no need to set a prior appointment when renewing passports of children 5 years old and below.

Additional Reminders:

  • Check if the Consulate is open on the date and time that you plan to renew your child’s passport. Take note that they are closed on Philippine holidays, some of which are not celebrated here in the UAE.
  • Wear the appropriate attire before going to the Consulate. Remember that you will not be allowed to enter if you are wearing shorts or flip flops. You will also be asked to remove earrings, necklaces, and hair accessories at the Encoding Area.
  • Before leaving your house, check and double-check to make sure that you have all the required documents!
