Done in an hour! :D

Last week, I have finally finished applying for my passport at the Department of Foreign Affairs. And boy, do I commend them for having an organized and speedy service.

But before I went to the DFA (Aseana), located at Macapagal Avenue, just behind S&R Pricemart, I have already scheduled my so-called "interview" weeks ago using All you need to do is browse through their requirements, fill-up the Application Form, look for the date that is convenient for you to process your papers and print the form. Easy right?

Going at the DFA office, lines were already formed as early as 6AM. But since my schedule is at 8:00 AM, they just need your Application Form, verify it (and they have a bar code scanner for it) and you can wait for your turn at the windows. Present the necessary documents, have them check it first, then they'll tell you to proceed at the 2nd floor for the payment, passport picture, fingerprint scanning and signature. Oh and the old passport system requires tedious pictures with blue background and the stuff right? Well, they now have your pictures taken there without the extra cost.

Payment for the passport is P950.00 (processed in 20 days) and P1,200.00 (processed in 10 days). You can also pay P120.00, should you wish for them to deliver it right in front of your doorstep.

And now, I just have to wait for it to be delivered. Hello foreign countries, I shall visit you soon. :)
