Philippine Passport Renewal in Dubai

Passport

It’s that time again. That inconvenient requirement of renewing my passport. Actually, my passport is still valid till September. But one must have at least 6 months valid passport to travel and I don’t want to miss any opportunity to see the world! πŸ˜€  So the question is .. 

HOW TO RENEW PHILIPPINE PASSPORT IN DUBAI?

  1.  Get an appointment. Here’s where the confusion is. Previously, Philippine Consulate General in Dubai accepts appointment requests through their Facebook account (weird, I know. A government agency should not use a social media platform to do official transactions, but I digress). However, they’ve changed their process. You now have to book an appointment on their online portal : Dubai PCG Passport Appointments
    • Register your details on the portal.
    • Choose a date 
    • Once you have an appointment, you’ll get an email confirmation. 
  2. appointmentScreening. On your appointment date, you will go to Encoder 2 for screening. Here’s where they check your documents to see if they’re complete and that you actually have an appointment on that date. 
  3. Pay. Go to room 3 (Cashier) and pay AED 250 for passport renewal. 
  4. Encoding.  Go to room 4 for encoding. Here’s where everything takes time. You really have to wait with a capital W. By the time you finish, you’re already bestfriend’s with your seatmate.  When it’s your turn, they take your documents, encode data, take your picture, thumb prints and digital signature. 
  5. Realeasing. Passports will be released 8 weeks from your appointment date. Bring your receipt to collect. A list of released passports are posted on the Consulate webpage

And you’re done!

I wish it was just this easy. But its’ really not.

Let me give you some tips based on my experience. 

  • Be there on time. I’m telling you, you don’t want to wait for a long time. If you come late, you’ll be the last to be served. 
  • Wear appropriate clothing. No slippers, no shorts, no revealing outfit. Just be decent.
  • Don’t bother going there without an appointment. They won’t help you. (Unless maybe if you have “wasta” inside)
  • Charge your phones/gadgets. I know that they prohibit the use of mobile phones but with the long wait you’ll need to entertain yourself. Just don’t use the phone for calling and put it on silent. Better yet, bring a book!

IMG_1332[1]

With regards to the appointment schedule, I know how frustrating it could be checking the online portal and not finding any available dates. I, myself got so desperate that I was looking for someone who has “inside” connections just so I could get an appointment! I did not find anyone who can help me so I just checked the portal everyday. As in every. single. day. until I found an available spot (somebody must have cancelled!)

And also, Dear Kabayans, don’t post your details on Facebook. It’s not safe! If you are reading this, then you have must have seen this link somewhere or you have “googled” how to apply for passport which means you have the time to go online (and not just browse FaceBook!). Please be patient and just keep trying on the portal. 

Posting your passport and contact details on Facebook just opens you up for possible scams (cell phone scams, identity theft, etc).

Hope this helps!

          For emergency cases na lang po ang validity extension.

          Ang pagkaka alam ko po 3 months passport validity lang ang required for visa renewal. Ibig sabihin pwede pa mag renew ng visa mister mo.

          May natangap ka dapat na email nung una ka nag set ng appointment. Pwede mo dalhin yung print-out nung email na yun bilang katunayan na may appointment ka ng December/2017. Wag ka mag book ng bago kung meron kang email.

          Kung wala ka natangap na email, wala kang choice kundi mag book ng panibago.

        Hindi na tumatangap ng walk-in sa passport renewal. Check mo araw araw dahil merong mga nag cancel ng appointment baka ma tyempo ka.

        Kung hindi ka naman mag byahe saka kung valid pa naman UAE ID mo saka visa wala namang problema kung sa January ka pa makapag renew.

    Hi Sir Alvin .

    Pwede po ba eclaim sa pinas ung renewed passport? May 2018 kc expiry ng passport ko kaso ung appointment ko is Nov 15 tapos uuwi ako pinas by Dec 26 bka di ako aabot sa pg claim sa new one. Meron po ba rush option and magkano po dito sa UAE?

    Thanks po sir God bless

    • Alvin | AB&Me

      Walang rush option dito sa Dubai. Hindi ka na ba babalik ng Dubai? Sa tingin ko naman aabot yung bago mong passport kung sa 26 pa ang uwi mo. Ang average duration ng renewal recently is 3 weeks.

      Kung hindi man umabot itanong mo sa consulate kung pwede magpag extend ng validity or kung pwede na sa Pinas mo na kunin yung bagong passport.

          Mas mabuti pa. Sa Pinas merong option na rush depende kung saang DFA office ka pupunta. Kung sa Pinas ka magpapa renew, paki cancel yung appointment mo sa consulate.

    Hello, ask ko lang po. Ang passport ko ay mag-eexpired sa 15th of Jan. 2018. Pero ngayong Aug. 30 (Katapusan) may appointment na akong naka booked sa Phil. Gen. Consulate. Kaso ang visa ko sa company eh til 11th of Oct. 2017 na lng. Di na po kc ko mag-rerenew sa current company ko pero wla din akong malilipatang new company. Magkakaroon kaya ko ako ng problema sa cancellation ko s knila since and pagrerelease ng renewed passport will take for 4 to 8 weeks. Please advise me po. Thank you.

    • Alvin | AB&Me

      I do not see any issues regarding the cancellation, the issue is collecting your new passport in case you are required to exit the country before your new passport is released.

      However, based on recent feedback from other Kabayan it is likely that your new passport will be issued before your cancellation. In case it is not and you are required to exit back to the Philippines – you have to inform the consulate to change the collection location of your new passport.

      Hello po Sir Alvin, my passport will expire on MAy 20,2018 and I will travel to Philippines on December 29,2017. Actually po, I plan to renew my passport but the earliest time na nakuha ko po for appointment is Nov 6,which is medyo alanganin in any cases na 6 to 8 weeks ang passport release.. Just in any case po na d umabot ang passport release, is it possible to leave UAE and enter again in UAE even my passport po is 5 months before expiry during that time. thanks a lot πŸ™‚

      There is no problem leaving UAE as long as your passport is valid. The issue is going back to UAE. Our immigration requires the passport to be valid at least 6 months. You can set your appointment for passport renewal in the Philippines there is an option to have the renewed passport in 10 working days subject to additional fees.

          If you have time to renew your passport in the Philippines its better, The 10 working days renewal duration is not available in some satellite locations of DFA.

          Please check first if the intended location do provide 10 working days passport renewal before scheduling an appointment in case you do decide to renew there.

    Hi po. Ask ko lang sino naka encounter dito na whenever i’ll try to book for an appointment eh sinasabi ng system nila “All appointment times are currently reserved. Please check back again later or find an open appointment time. Thank you!”… and if I click “i wish to continue the application”, lalabas eh PLEASE SELECT DATE… but then wala naman calendar or date list na pwede pamilian.. is this a bug issue or talagang pigaan ang pagkuha ng sched?

    Thank in advance sa advice.

      Its more likely that there are no time slots available on the date you prefer. The appointment system will normally show when is the next slot available.

          Yes you can make your booking. You will have the option to change your passport details in the airline manage booking page in-case your new passport is released before your travel date. In-case you are not able to do that before you travel, just ensure that you have the old passport with you when you travel.

      One of the requirement specified in the passport renewal process page is visa copy http://www.dubaipcg.dfa.gov.ph/services/passports/procedures, however, it does not specify if the visa have to be valid. You may try and explain your situation to the consulate.

          PCG extends passport validity for emergency cases only. I guess in your situation, it can be considered an emergency. Do you have any document or anything that can prove that your company have closed?

          You may renew your passport even if the previous one is still valid. The recommendation from PCG is a least 10 months before expiration.

    It depends on the validity of your tourist visa. If your tourist visa is likely to expire before the new passport is issued it will not be possible to collect the new passport if you are already outside the country.

        You won’t have a problem going back to the Philippines as long as your travel document is valid at the time of departure from UAE and arrival in the Philippines. The 6 months requirement is when departing from Philippines.

      Your passport have to be valid for at least 3 months when you leave the Philippines. If at all your new passport is not available before you leave, you can go to the consulate and ask for an extension. Your case may be considered an emergency since you are pregnant. You may also arrange to have your new passport collected/delivered in the Philippines.

        Diba dapat atleast 6 months validity ng passport before they can be allowed to travel and not 3 months. Nasa booking details yun nakalagay when you book for your airline ticket.

      A hold departure order is what it is. A hold departure order. If he remains to be a citizen of the Philippines, he/she has the right to renew his passport, however if there is a warrant of arrest the consulate is obliged to report to DFA and local authorities as applicable.

      If your visit visa is only 3 months, wouldn’t it already be expired or about to expire by July/2017? I think you should get a new visit visa first by July/2017 before you renew your passport.

        It depends on the validity of your tourist visa. If your tourist visa is likely to expire before the new passport is issued it will not be possible to collect the new passport if you are already outside the country.

          Hello! I have a similar question. Im gonna renew my passport this september here but my visit visa is expiring at the end of the month but im gonna exit and come back with a new visit visa so the passport renewal wait wont be a problem for me. But will this be an issue to them? Will they still allow me to renew or do I have to tell them my case i.e. im exiting but coming back anyway? Please help. Thanks.

            It depends on the validity of your passport. When applying for visit visa your passport should be valid for at least 3 months. You may continue and renew your passport here, as long as it is valid by the time you get your new visit visa and return to Dubai.

          As per DNRD requirement for Entry Permit/Residence Visa, the passport should be valid for at least 3 months at the time of application. Since your passport expiration is in Sep/2017 they should still be able to apply for an entry permit/residence visa for you.

          Passport renewal doesn’t usually take 3 months. In most cases its just one month. The 3 months duration is a worst case scenario.

          When does your passport expire? You should be able to get an OEC in POLO DXB by showing that you have already applied for your passport renewal. All face to face application for OEC requires online appointment. Walk-ins may be entertained based on availability only.

          In general, there should be no issue as long as you a valid residence visa and UAE ID. however, There are some banks that require their customers to submit the renewed passport once the old one expires failure to do so may result in suspension of banking transactions.

          Please do check the appointment site daily as slots become available when someone else cancels or reschedule their original appointment.

      There will be no problem as your passport is still valid at the time of exit from UAE. You do need to renew your passport before you travel back from the Philippines.

      Regarding the OEC, as far as I know you need a travel booking to be able to get an OEC. OEC is only for first time balik bayan or those who have changed employer. Those who are returning to the same employer are only required to obtain the excemption reference number.

      What does your OEC have to do with sponsoring? As far as I know OEC is not required to obtain an affidavit of support from our embassy/consulate. The requirement is for passport copy with visa page.

      Your question is not related to the topic, however, possibility of returning to Dubai is dependent on the reason why your residence visa was cancelled.

      If your visa was cancelled without prejudice, there is not reason why you wont be able to go back. You might face more difficulty in getting out of Manila as you will have to prove that you are a legitimate tourist.

      If your residence visa was cancelled because you got terminated from employment due to violation of the law its a different case.

      When do you plan to return from your holiday? If the return trip is within 3 months of your passport expiration, you may have a problem. You may renew your passport in the Philippines during your holiday.

      You may also apply for renewal here before your visa is renewed which is my personal recommendation. It would be better for you if your renewed visa is on your new passport. This will enable you to register and use the smart gates during your arrival.

      Yes, you will not be able to travel until the time you get your new passport.

      Please check the appointment site daily as slots become available due to others canceling or re-scheduling their appointment.

    Hi Ms. Sheila.like to ask.maybe you have an idea po.my passport will be expired on July 8 2016 but my family and I are planning to go Philippines on July 4, will there be a problem entering Philippines or just coming back to Dubai? Since I’m planning to renew it in the Philippines
    Your help is highly appreciated

    • Alvin | AB&Me

      As long as you enter the country with a valid passport it should not be a problem. However 4 days of validity is quite risky, however unlikely, flights can be cancelled or diverted.

      You will not be able to leave the Philippines unless your passport is renewed.

        Thank you so much.but My kids and husband are Lebanese passport holders so I just had their visas done and I’m afraid the period given to them will expire by the time my passport renewal is done as well so no time that’s why I’m confused if I can enter philippines with that short span of time left before the expiry but will renew it in the Philippines.

      Your current passport is valid until the expiration date specified in the details page or until the consulate punches a hole in it after you collect the new one. You may travel, however check the specific requirement for the country that you are planning to travel to.

        Am on a 3 mos visa and will expire on July 4, can I apply for passport extension?Bcoz I found a job and my company will apply for employment visa.We can still use my old passport which will expire on Jan.6,2016?

        • Sheila | A B & Me

          Medyo magulo yung question nyo sir. Nag expire na ba yung passport nyo nung Jan 6, 2016? o Mag eexpire pa lang sa Jan 6, 2017??
          Either way, why do you need to apply for extension? Your new employment visa will be stamped on your still valid passport. When you renew your passport, you will have to attach the old to the new passport until you renew your visa again (para dun na sya ma stamp sa new passport).

          Hope that clears your concern.

    I found a job and I have a copy of my offer letter but need to exit UAE sa July 4,2016 then pagbalik ko ay may Employment Visa na ako. TANONG:Valid pa ba ang passport ko(Expiration-Jan.4,2017) at makakapasok o makakabalik ba ako ng UAE?

    Good Day Ma’am Sheila, I am working here in Al Ain. Can I renew my PHP passport there in Philippine Consulate General in Dubai? Because I am confused someone told me that I cannot be able to renew my passport there in Consulate. It should be in Philippine Embassy Abu Dhabi. I just want only to save time and money that is why I want to renew my passport there in Philippine Consulate not in Philippine Embassy. If you know the answer to my queries just message me. Thank you so much.

      If you are already employed and have your residence visa stamped on your passport, you can apply for an OEC here in Dubai provided that your vacation will not exceed 60 days. Otherwise, OWWA staff will just tell you to apply in the Philippines.

      If your passport is less than 6 months valid, you will not be issued an OEC you will be required to renew your passport first. You will be able to go home but you will not be able to leave the Philippines unless you renew your passport there.

          As long as your passport is valid at the time of exit, there is no issue. The issue will be when you try go back with your passport validity less than 3 months. Its always a good practice to keep at least 6 months validity in your passport. You still have time, you should try and renew as soon as possible.

      Your old passport will still be with you while the new one is being processed. The old one will remain valid until you collect the new one and DFA punches a hole in the old passport.

      Most embassy requires a passport validity of only 6 months. Why would an employer require your passport to be valid for 2 years? Which country is that new employer based?

      If your residence visa here in Dubai is valid at the time of return, immigration/DFA will not stop you from travelling. You can always say that you will renew in Dubai. You may also extend the validity of your passport before leaving Dubai. Another thing you can do is already set an appointment for your passport renewal in Dubai and show that to Immigration/DFA as evidence that you will renew your passport in Dubai.

      you can renew your passport anytime. Kailangan lang 6 months valid sya kung babyahe ka.
      Wala akong makita na problema sa situation mo aside from the fact na wala kang trabaho/visa to stay.

    hi Sheila,

    magandang gabi.
    gusto ko sana malaman tungkol sa pag renew ng passport: ang passport expiration ko ay May 2016 at ang visa expiration ko ay March 2016. tama ba na mag pa booked na ako para sa renewal ng mas maaga gaya next month October.

    maraming salamat!

    Hello po,

    Ask ko lg sana… Naka e-passport (with chip) na ako expiring on March 7, 2016. By Sept. 8, 2015, less than six months na sya and i need to travel sa pinas by Sept 10, 2015. Ma eextend po ba nila yun? Because i heard na mahigpit na daw ngayon and mag eextend lng sila kng may valid reasons like death sa family or emergency cases. I’m thinking twice baka ksi bumili ako ng ticket for September 10, 2015 and hndi pala approved ung extension ng passport… May appointment na ako for passport renewal on September 2, 2015 pero i don’t want to wait on that date para bumili ng ticket ksi mahal na ticket by that time.

      Hi Nympha, I don’t get it. Wala naman ako receipt nung nakatanggap ako ng appointment. And they did not text me my appointment date. If you followed the procedure, the appointment portal will give you the date and they will email you. So walang resibo dapat dahil wala ka naman binayaran to get an appointment.

      As for the expiry of your passport, I suggest you get an extension for your passport dahil hindi ka makakabalik ng UAE kapag expired ang passport mo.

I did my appointment last December 2014 but the schedule that has been given to was March 10,2015. Baka another 3months na naman po ang makuha ko at it will be on June which the same month of my vacation.

      Hi Renz, I’m not sure pano mag renew sa Abu Dhabi. I haven’t tried it there pero I heard its easier nga daw.
      As for the cancellation naman, I think you need to contact the consulate through their FB page to tell them your problem. They reply naman usually (hindi lang sila nag eentertain if you give them your passport number and ask for an appointment thru FB kasi that’s not how it works). Anyway, worst case scenario, you can just have your passport extended tapos pagbalik mo na lang dito mo ipa renew ulit.

          Bakit ka pupunta ng walang appointment in the first place? May valid passport at visa ka pa naman.
          Second, kung mag expire ang visa mo, pwede naman yan i renew using your current passport dahil valid pa yan. Pag malapit na ang expiry ng passport mo, ipa renew mo lang. I don’t see any issues.

Eh sa akin po eh nauna ako magbayad at binalik naman sakin yung form then encoding na at dun nla kinuha yung form. Okay na po ba yun? Thanks!

    Ganun po b talaga yung website walang calendar n lumalabas? Pano ka po kya mkk browse ng dates n available? Nakakatawa nman tong website nila tsambahan parang loto. Low budget website hahaha, gobyerno nga nman tlaga, malamang npunta n nman sa bulsa ang perang dapat nklaan sa pagawa ng maayos n website. Grabe to pahirap no, natatawa n lng ako n naiinis

      Can, i cant say agree nor disagree with you. Kung hindi maka kuha ng date, it can simply mean na madaming naka schedule kaya dapat month before pa lang nag papa schedule ka na. Naka kuha nga lang ako ng schedule dahil may nag cancel. Try and try na lang

        What i mean is dapat may nag aapear na calendar sa website nila kc matagal p ang plano kong appointment sa april or may p or bk july p, pero kung walang calendar d k mkk choose ng date n plan mo ng mas maaga. So bale game of chance lng talaga ang ggwin ng mga taong ng b browse paulit ulit mong bubuksan hangang sa mk tsamba k. Point is hindi user friendly ang website nila for appointment compared sa ibang mkikita mo yung calendar n nklagay kung available p o hindi yung particular day ng gusto mo.

          Can, I think meron lang glitch sa system nila. I tried logging in and hindi din ako maka browse ng calendar kasi daw may active appointment ako (yung appointment date ko na lumipas na, dapat na clear na yun dahil completed na ang transaction). Hindi naman maiiwasan na may glitch sa system. I would suggest take a screen cap of your error / issue sa portal and then send mo sa FB nila via private message. Sumasagot naman sila doon. Hindi lang sila nag aaccept ng appointment via FB pero they answer queries.

          I’m sure they would appreciate kung ma report natin ang problema ng system nila para ma rectify. I will do the same thing para ma clear na yung appointment ko sa system nila. Also, you have to take into consideration yung dates ng Ramadan. In my experience, hindi lumalabas ang calendar/ schedule nila during this time kasi hindi pa nila alam ang Ramadan timings nila (shempre shortened working hours yan). Once alam na nila yung Ramadan schedule, nilalabas na nila yung calendar for appointment.

          Good luck!

      Dolores, wala akong alam kung anong proseso sa pagwork mo sa labas. Pero importante na may passport ka dahil hindi ka makakalabas ng bansa kung wala kang valid passport. Passport ay valid and legal document na nagpapatunay ng identity at nationality mo. Kailangan mo i renew yan. Walang penalty kung mag renew ka ng expired passport kaya pwede mo yan i renew anytime. Good luck!

          Hello, ang alam ko po kailangan nyo ng valid travel documents para makapag travel. So dapat po pumunta kayo sa consulate para magpa renew ng passport. tungkol naman sa pag balik nyo dito, depende yun kung anong naging kaso at nag over stay kayo dito sa Dubai ng walang visa.

          Makipag usap po kayo sa mga officials sa consulate para mabigyan kayo ng mas maayos na sagot at tulong.

      Hi Jason,

      try 6 months before the expiration magpa appointment ka na because mahirap kumuha ng appointment date. Kung wala pang available dates ng 6 months before, try 3 months before expiration. Give yourself enough time para iwas stress.

        Kasi po Ma’am ang iniisip ko eh parang sa emirates id na ung rules nila, na kung ano ung oras ng appointment mo eh ganong oras oras ka rin nila i entertain. Mga 10 na lng ako siguro pupunta para kung tama ang iniisip ko eh maikling oras lang ako maghihintay hindi tulad ng 7am mahaba ang oras. Maraming salamat po Ma’am..

      Jhun, ang alam ko pwede ka umuwi dahil valid pa naman passport mo pero hindi ka makaka labas ng Pilipinas dahil kailangan 6 months valid. Apply ka na lang ng visa extension para mas mabilis pero ganun din ata babayaran. Better inquire sa fb page, masasagot nila yan.

      Hi Mylene, I have not encountered this before. I would imagine that since the date has already passed, it should have been cancelled already, right?
      Have you tried calling them? Or sending them a private message in FB? they might give you a solution to this. (from my experience, they answer queries in FB BUT they won’t make appointments for you. I would suggest tell them that you’re having issues with scheduling).

      Hope that helps!

        You try and exit to another country such as Iran. You are going to a huge risk by overstaying in the country. As far as I know you can only overstay for a certain number of days before you can be considered as illegal.

        Regularly check the appointment website because its common that other people would cancel or reschedule their appointment and a slot can be available for earlier dates.

    Hi! Thanks for the info above. Just want to check, did you arrive in the consulate on the exact time stated on your appointment or did you come early? I am just worried that if I come on time baka mahaba na yung pila or if I come early eh hindi naman ako entertainin pa kung di pa yung oras ko. My schedule is at 0950am and I am planning to come there at around 8am or 7am even just to be ahead on the line. How early did you arrive there? Thanks a lot! πŸ™‚

      Hi Len, my sched was at 2 pm if I remember correctly… I arrived 5 mins before. You don’t have to go there super early… Pero don’t come late kasi you have to drop your passport sa counter and you don’t want to be at the bottom of the pile.. First come first served kasi.

            Please note that extension of passport validity will only be granted for emergency cases.
