    • Hi Haya! I thought it would be good news for people whose passports are about to expire so I posted it. Sayang I already renewed mine last year. 😀 Thanks for dropping by.

  • hi question po. so sa november 1 2016 expiration ng passport ko. baka po march and may magtravel ako. kelan ko po kaya dapat iparenew? and one more question, after ko po ba maparenew passport ko, pwede na ko makatravel agad?or kelangan ko pa magintay ng 6 months para makatravel ulit using my renewed passport?

    • Hi rm94. Kailangan kasi ng 6 months’ validity sa passport mo for you to travel abroad, so ok pa yun gamitin for your March travel but probably not for your May trip. I suggest you have it renewed right after your March trip, and siguro ipa-rush mo na lang para sure na your new passport will arrive in time for your May trip. Once you have your new passport, you can use it right away.
