New DFA Building Map Guide
Since I have blogged about different DFA passport application information needs, people have asked me through my comments section about the Department of Foreign Affairs map.
Now that the office of the new DFA building has been relocated, people ask me where is the new location address and how to get there. Just in time for the 2011 turn of the year to transfer. Below is just an overview and guide on how to reach new DFA building that initially transferred March 8, 2010.
First off, if you are not familiar with how the process of passport application goes, there is a new set of guidelines. First step is to produce all the requirements and then you have to make a reservation via the DFA passport online appointment system. A date will be given to you on the process so you know when to come and then the problem on how to get to the new location comes.
To aid you in simple direction terms and visualization map, the new DFA office is located in Macapagal Avenue. It is a four-storey establishment called as the DFA-OCA building. It is located in corner of Bradco Avenue and Macapagal Avenue in Aseana Business Park, near the Mall of Asia. For more information, you can call the DFA consular help-line number (02-556-0000) or DFA telephone number (02-834-4000). For those who are not familiar with the area, I strongly suggest that you use Google Maps. Below is a complete guide including the FX taxi routes and jeepney or bus to take a ride from Pasay or from Baclaran or from Airport Road.
