Christoff's Passport Application

This is a super long overdue blog post. This experience was last April pa. Alam niyo naman, naging napakabusy ng lola niyo the past few months. Anyway, I think this is worth sharing pa rin naman. =)

So here it goes...

I applied Christoff a passport at DFA Alabang Town Center. Actually, ini-sched ko pa siya sa DFA website which hindi naman pala kailangan. Kapag infant pala, you can go to DFA anytime basta dala mo lang lahat ng requirements. Wala nang pila pila basta you can go directly to the Senior Citizen/Pregnant/Infant lane.

Well, I was at DFA Alabang Town Center wala pang 9:00am. Ayaw ko na kasing pumila eh (I thought kasi that time need ko pa pumila). I was there early pero eto na kaagad ang pila na naabutan ko...

Pero, like what I have said earlier, hindi na ako nakipila diyan since infant pa si Christoff. So by the time binuksan na yung gate, isa ako sa mga nauna na sa taas. Kasama ko yung ibang mga senior citizen.

Since nauna na nga ako, wala pang katao tao sa waiting area that time...

Kaya ayun, I went directly inside the DFA na...

I was not able to take pictures inside DFA because they don't allow it. Anyway, it only took us less than 30 minutes for the whole passport application process. Ang bilis right? Kaya guys, if you are planning to apply your babies (infants - less than 1 year old) a passport, I suggest first thing in the morning kayo pumunta para first kayo sa pila. As in walang ka-hassle hassle talaga!

Here's Christoff's passport picture...

Ang liit pa niya dyan ano? He was like just 4 months old that time. =)

By the way, before I forget, since I'm the one who processed Christoff's passport application, here are the only requirements they got from us (from DFA website):

  • Personal appearance of the minor applicant
  • Personal appearance of either parent (if minor is a legitimate child)
  • Original birth certificate of minor in Security Paper issued by NSO or certified true copy of birth certificate issued by the Local Civil Registrar and duly authenticated by NSO.
  • Marriage certificate of minor's parents duly authenticated by NSO
  • Original and photocopy of valid passport of either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / of mother (if minor is an illegitimate child) or identification documents

That's it guys! I hope nakahelp ako sa inyo. =)
