The Office of Consular Affairs of the Department of Foreign Affairs informs the public that passport applicants may now opt to pay for their passport application through credit and debit card payments.
The DFA has partnered with PayMaya Philippines Inc. which allows more payments options for the transacting public. Passport applicants who secure an online appointment may now choose to pay online through their debit card or credit card.
Previously, passport applicants who secured an online appointment could only pay for their passport application through over-the-counter payments. This required leaving their homes and going to the nearest accredited Bayad Center where they could pay for their passport application. This new system of paying through credit and debit cards offers faster and real-time payment without having to leave the safety of their own homes.
Those who wish to apply for or renew their passports may secure an appointment by visiting http://passport.gov.ph.
