I just can’t relive the memory of the first time I went to DFA to apply for a passport back in 2002 without reliving the long endless queues, all the hassle + the trouble brought about by bureaucracy + whatnot! Really not a pleasant experience! Imagine after enduring a whole day’s worth of falling in line + waiting for my turn, I even had to return the next day just to get what I initially came for? Very inconvenient + disappointing, I tell you!

The worse thing is that I never get to use the passport anyway (I was planning to seek employment overseas, back then, but had a change of heart since my parents, especially our father, won’t let us) after all the trouble I had to go through to get it!  It settled dormant in a box with the rest of my stuff, untouched + unstamped, until it expired in 2007.

I never had the need to renew the thing since.

Now,  imagine how surprised I was when I found out that I no longer have to suffer the same fate if I were to renew my passport. In fact, much thanks to Teleserv’s innovative services, I can easily go online or dial from my phone for passport renewal via their DFA Passport Appointment System. There are two ways to do this:

a. Applying via internet

  • simply log-on to passport.com + follow instructions to get an appointment schedule
  • prepare all needed documents or requirements (check out the list here)
  • just go to the DFA Consular Affairs Office at the scheduled date + time (check CAO’s location here)

b. Applying through phone

  • Call the DFA Passport Appointment System by dialling (02)737-1000 to get an appointment schedule
  • prepare all needed documents or requirements (check out the list here)
  • just go to the DFA Consular Affairs Office at the scheduled date + time (check CAO’s location here)

Really fast + convenient + it saves you a considerable amount of time you can use for some other endeavors.

Apart from this service, Teleserv also provide NSO Birth Certificate Delivery, Overseas Exit Clearance, + Group Application Services for NSO Certificates. Not only are they fast + convenient, but they also provide secure + confidential online payment options.
