Payment is not required to secure an appointment and documents are no longer required to be mailed to the Embassy. It is illegal to transact with ‘fixers’ in order to schedule an online appointment. The Embassy has not authorized any group or individual to intercede, facilitate, or assist in the booking for passport appointment especially those who charge a fee. The public is warned against unscrupulous individuals who charge exorbitant fees in exchange for passport assistance and other consular services. Fixers and individuals engaging in fraudulent activities are punishable by law. Those who engage the services of these unauthorized private entities or individuals using social media accounts and networks run the risk of not getting an authentic appointment or encountering issues with their passport application, aside from incurring additional expenses.

Please note that an extended Philippine passport may be used for direct travel to the Philippines but it is not recommended for travel to other countries.
