For our case, since we process the passport application and knowing we do not have yet the copy of the Philippine Statistics Authority Birth Certificate we use the Certified True Copy of Live Birth for this application.


We went directly to DFA Consular Cebu office to apply for Philippine passport which is located at Pacific Mall, Mandaue City. We recommend to visit the office in the morning considering we are bringing an infant which is quite difficult.

4th Level, Pacific Mall, Mandaue City, Cebu

Office Hours:
Monday-Friday (9:00am-5:00pm)
Saturday (9:00am-3:00pm)
Closed on Sundays and Public Holidays

Upon our arrival, we approached the security guard outside the consular office and ask for the application form, which he handed over to us. We filled it out with all the necessary information and pass it back to the security guard in charge. The security guard handed over the application form to the person assigned for assessment in which we are informed to sit down at the courtesy lane and wait for our name to be called.

Note: Wearing of sleeveless/slippers are allowed. It is advisable to wear a shirt with collar and to remove all jewelry during photo taking.


We entered the DFA consular office after our name was called. There we lined up under the courtesy lane and waited for our turn to submit the requirements at the counter. After the teller’s verification, we proceeded to the payment section.

After verification, we proceed to the payment section and was provided on the passport application fee.

Since the price difference is not much from Expedite to Regular we choose to choose the Expedite option for our Philippine passport application for infant.  The delivery fee not included and may vary upon the location. Additional convenience fee for online e-payments may be charged per applicant.

Note: Minors which fall under the category of seven (7) years old and below passport validity is good for 5 years.

After we received our payment receipts, we went to another counter for the photo taking. Once done we are advise to keep the collection form and present it upon the collection of the passport.
The whole process application took almost 2 hours to complete which is way convenient as compare to before.
