Steps to renew your Philippine Passport without appointment at VFS in Dubai

by | Feature

Nov. 24, 19 | 12:10 pm

Filipinos planning to process their passport renewals may now proceed at their preferred time at VFSWafi Mall in Dubai following the successful launch of the Passport Renewal Center (PaRC) service last November 21.

While Filipinos can still go through the normal process of having their passports renewed either in the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi or Philippine Consulate in Dubai by going through their appointment system during working hours, the convenience of the new PaRC service is that Filipinos can now visit the VFS Center at Oud Metha any time from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, seven days a week, except UAE holidays.

Here’s the process:

Only for Renewal. First thing to note is the PaRC service only processes renewal of passports. This means that Filipinos under the following conditions cannot have their passports processed at VFS.

– New passports (Babies, children, those applying for passports for the first time, etc)
– Lost passports
– Filipinos requiring changes for their passport (from maiden name to married name, spelling errors, etc.)

Prepare Requirements. Filipinos should bring the following:

– E-passport Renewal Form
> For Dubai Residents: Passport Application – Dubai and the Northern Emirates Residents
> For Abu Dhabi Residents: Passport Application – Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Al Dhafra, Western Region Residents
– Existing Philippine Passport
– Photocopy of Passport
– Photocopy of Residence/Work Visa
– Emirates ID
– Photocopy of Emirates ID

Wear decent clothing. Your new Philippine Passport will be valid for the next 10 years – as such, authorities advise Filipinos to be decently dressed as the passport photo will reflect how they look as it will used in various countries when they travel and for other legal and official purposes as well.

Cost. Passport renewals at VFS will cost Dh 331.75: Dh240 of which for the passport renewal fee, and Dh91.75 for the service fee. Both cash and credit card payment options are accepted.

Upon arrival, you will get a queue number and will be asked to present the documents when you’re called. After paying the fee of Dh331.75, you will be given a receipt to keep for you to claim the passport later on.

A representative from VFS will then take your photo for the passport, scan your fingerprints and application form and have you sign their signature pad.

Afterwhich you will be asked to review all details that you keyed in, as well as the terms and conditions before you confirm and accept all the details in the system. Note that this is important to check as one spelling mistake or any wrong information will have to be revised at the Philippine Embassy or Philippine Consulate, wherever applicable.

Once you have signed the confirmation you will be advised to wait around four weeks for your passport – VFS will send an email confirmation to the passport renewal applicant to confirm that the passport is ready for pick up.

You can also monitor the following websites to check if your passport is already available for collection at VFS.

Philippine Consulate
Philippine Embassy

Filipinos should remember to bring their receipts and present their old passports before their new passport is issued to them.
