DFA Bacolod opens slots for passport renewal


The Department of Foreign Affairs Consular Office in Bacolod has opened online appointment slots for passport renewal, starting next week.

At least over 1,000 slots have been opened by the DFA to accommodate online applicants starting April 11 until the end of the month.

Slots for April 12 are almost fully booked.

The DFA stressed that the online appointment slots will only be for simple renewal. To book a slot, visit passport.gov.ph and tick “simple renewal only” under the list of available sites.

Renewal fee is for P1,200 and can be paid over-the-counter or through a credit/debit card.

Last month, the DFA has also opened its walk-in application for qualified applicants.
