DFA, otherwise known as the DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS is “the prime agency of government responsible for the pursuit of the State’s foreign policy and the nerve center for a Foreign Service worthy of the trust and pride of every Filipino.” (source: website).

Most of us came to know the DFA for passport processing and application but in real life, this department or agency of the Philippines government handles the welfare of Pinoys / Filipinos abroad. it is their biggest task so as to make sure that the right services are delivered to the right person at the right time. DFA helps advance the interest of the Filpino and the Philippines as a whole to the world community.

We hope to help you all through our different links where you can find related information about the Department of Foreign Affairs from passport fees, how to get to new DFA building, online appointment system, renewal requirements, online application, branches and the DFA map guide.

    To whom it may Concern,

    My daughter was born in Oregon, USA… I wasn’t aware that I needed to report her birth at the Philippine Consulate there.

    She is now here in the Philippines and she’s going to college this coming school year, one of the university’s requirement is a NSO birth Certificate.

    We have inquired on-line at the Philippine Consulate in San Francisco, I was told that I need to file REPORT OF BIRTH at the Consular Records Division, Department of Foregn Affairs along Macapagal Ave., Pasay City.

    I’ve been also told that the basic requirements is her US BIRTH CERTIFICATE authenticated by the Consulate General of San Francisco.

    My questions now are, are there any more documents required aside from her authenticated US Birth Certificate? Also, do I need to have an scheduled appointment to go at your office?

    I would appreciate it very much if you could provide me some answers and more information regarding my daughters case, Thank You in advance and God Speed.

    I just want to make a complain of what happened last week, August 12, 2011.

    Nag renew kami ng passports ng family ko from 2:30 p.m. natapos kmi almost 6PM na dahil sobrang dami ng tao. On our way home, napansin ko nawawala ang 1thousand bill ko. I just finally realized na sobra pala ang naibayad ko sa cashier in payment for the 3 passports (regular). Nagmamadali ang cashier na kunin yung receipts at bayad namin. Nabigay ko sa kanya 4k, but ang sinukli nya, P150 lang. If the cashier was in good faith, di ba dapat sinabi nyang sobra ang naibayad ko? Hinde eh, deadma lang sya, at sinuklian lang ako ng P150… Siguro naisip nya baka alam ko P3k lang ang naibigay ko… We were also in a hurry to get a number para sa picture taking…Nawala sa isip ko na 4k pala ang naibigay ko….

    I was so disappointed of what happened, sayang ang P1thousand. Bakit kaya may mga taong instead of doing rightful deeds to their kababayans, nag tatake advantage pa sila? Mahiya naman sana ang mga taong ganito…. pareparehas lang tayong nagtatrabaho…

    Sana bigyang pansin po ninyo ang sulat kong ito.

    Thank you very much.

Ano po ba ang requirements sa damaged passport of formerly OFW to replace the spoiled passport. Ang damage po yung nabasa po pero readable pa naman ang mga info. Magkano ang charges if ever. thanks.

  • Romel says:


    Ask ko lang po kung ung mga ex pinoy na naging foreign citizen na at gusto nila dito sa pilipinas magpakasal eh kailangan pa ma-authenticate ng DFA ang Marriage Contract nila. Ang pagkakaalam ko ay ung mga for authentication jan sa DFA eh dapat naka SECPA from NSO.

    Kindly advise po kung paano po iyon at kailangan pa ba i register sa NSO ang magiging kasal nila eh hindi na cla pinoy ngaun.

    Usually, may embassy na andito sa pinas, they require documents like marriage contract to be authenticated by DFA.

    Dear sirs
    I had a house worker that worked for me for 3 years in the past that is looking to return and work for me again in Lebanon. As I am told that you are not allowing girls to come to Lebanon and work even if they have a visa. Is this true?
