Then read on. I just got home from the DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs) office in Pasay City, Philippines to renew my passport. Before I went there, I've heard how tedious and time consuming a passport renewal would be from a friend who went to the DFA office as early as 6am to fall in line and meet the cut off for the passport renewal because only a certain number of applicants can be entertained in a day. It took her four hours just to accomplish a seemingly daunting task. WTF?!!! There's no way I'm gonna wake up early just to fall in line for a passport renewal. So I thought of googling my way out of this burden... and I did. Passport applicants can now enjoy a convenient way of getting their new passports through Pilipinas Teleserv. I was glad to know that the service includes document pick up. A representative from their courier went to my home last Wednesday to pick up all my requirements- old passport, 3 passport pictures, photocopies of my passport and the 1,300 Php fee. Then they scheduled me for a DFA appointment this morning. I arrived at 10:30am and I saw a representative on the Evangelista gate of the DFA with a Teleserv signage and approached him. I didnt even have to fall in line at the main gate. The representative, whose name skipped my mind, told me to go directly to their booth inside. When I got there, I was escorted to one of their special window where I signed the application form, which they have filled up for me, and affixed my thumb mark and was told the process was over and I should just wait for the passport to be delivered. It took me less than 10minutes. Whew!!! Regular processing would take about 8 working days to get their new passport, with Teleserv it takes 10 working days and it will be delivered to your home. It's a few days longer but it saves me the burden of going back to the DFA office. I was so pleased with their service and their representatives were very courteous. I just hope the passport would be delivered on schedule.
