Philippine Passport Collection in Dubai

Finally got my passport back!  Here’s how you can collect your passport from the Philippine Consulate in Dubai after the renewal process

Philippine Passport Collection in Dubai | AB&Me


Philippine Passport Collection Process (Philippine Passport Collection in Dubai)

  1. Check if your passport is ready for releasing. You can do that through the Philippine Consulate General, Dubai official webpage.
  2. Deposit your old passport and receipt at the releasing counter
  3. When your name is called, collect your new passport.
  4.  Go buy some Filipino delicacies outside (optional!)


PCG Dubai and Northern Emirates facebook page regularly posts updates when they have new passports for releasing, however, they DO NOT accept appointments for renewal in Facebook which I already stated in my previous post. Also, I see some “kabayans” asking if the people in the consulate could check if their passport is already available etc etc.. Here’s my take on that: the process is very clear, it is OUR responsibility to check if our passport is ready for collection. If your passport is not on the list, then it is not yet ready. Right!?

Also, they will only hold your passport for 6 months from the time it was issued. If it remains unclaimed after this grace period, it will get cancelled. Sorry ka na lang, teh.  Let’s all do our part in this process. Less reklamo, more diligence. [edited to add: Check PCG Facebook Page for passport release, they sometimes post advisories.]

Now, time to put stamps and visas on this fresh passport. Weeee!!!


I have been receiving emails and comments on this post and while I appreciate having people reading my blog (and hopefully helping them!!) please note that I am not, in any way, connected to the Philippine Consulate. I cannot check if your passports are ready. I have listed the steps above to help everyone to have an idea on how to go about the process. If you still have questions, kindly contact the Consulate. Thanks!

      We have not experienced claiming renewed Philippine passport without receipt, I do believe that you will still be able to claim yours. Do your still have your old passport?

      I would recommend contacting the consulate directly.

    Hi, I would like to know what needs to be done if my original receipt is lost? My name is already in the list for passport release and I don’t know what to do now that my receipt is lost. Tried calling the Consulate but as usual no one is picking up the phone. Consulate is quite far hence when I saw your link, tried to ask here. hope you can help me on this. Thanks.

    • A B & Me

      I can’t give you a more concrete answer on this one. You have no other choice but to go there and collect your passport. I don’t think they will not give you your passport just because of a lost receipt. Obviously you are the owner, right? good luck.

    Hello, I renewed my passport last year on the month of May 2014 in Bacolod City, Philippines. However, I wasnt able to wait as the release will be on the month of July 2014 and my flight was 21st of June 2014. I filled up a form to ask a request to forward my new passport to Dubai Philippines Consulate. Kindly advice on how to check if its there. It has been a year already.
    Thank you very much.

      Hi, I can’t advice on this particular matter as I have not experienced the same situation. Have you tried calling the consulate? Or checking DFA in Bacolod?

    Hello I just read you blog regarding Passport renewal here in Dubai and I would say it really helpful that brought me to explore more on you site. Anyways I just like to ask if your visa was stamped in your old passport do you need to apply new visa to stamp it in your new passport?

    May 4, 2015 at 8:44 PM Reply
    • A B & Me

      Hi Rose, if your old passport has your valid visa, they will return your old passport along with the new one. No need to apply for new visa.

          Try nyo pa din po i collect yung passport kung available na. hindi naman nila yun ipa process kung hindi ka nakabayad and ibibigay naman siguro yon sa iyo since passport mo iyon, picture mo yung nandun.
          Kung hindi naman ibigay, mas masasagot po ng consulate yung tanong nyo kung nandun na kayo. Good luck po.

            Wala po akong koneksyon sa embahada ng Pilipinas sa UAE. Hindi ko kayo matutulungan sa pagkakataon na ito. Sa consulate po kayo mag tanong or ipa check nyo sa DFA CDO.

            PS. inalis ko yung mga passport details na binigay mo dahil delikado na nag iiwan ka ng legal information sa public website.
