Today was a big day for us. Everyone in Manila knows how toxic it normally is to apply for a new passport. Ashton and his Daddy applied for their passports today with the help of a travel agency. I paid a premium price to make it more convenient for us, especially I want to make sure all documents and requirement would be accepted.

I’ve been working on documents and coordinating with different people for 2 weeks and finally today, their passports are being processed and will be released in 14 days. It took us an hour and a half to finish, although we didn’t have to wait in line so much. Not bad and I like the new DFA building.
We are very excited to see Ashton’s first passport, fingers crossed we can use it twice this year. We’d love to go to Hongkong and shop for things such as an iphone case. Here are required documents you need to apply for a passport for your infant:
1. NSO Birth Certificate – 6 months release from the time of birth
2. NSO Marriage Certificate – if available
3. Photocopy of mother’s passport
I heard applicants with infants are given the courtesy lane. Yet, you have to set an appointment first at the DFA website if you are not going to use a travel agency’s services.
