DFA to dispose unclaimed passports issued before December 2020

-

All unclaimed passports scheduled for release before December 2020 will be forced to cancel and disposed of by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

According to a statement issued by the department on Thursday, those who have yet to claim their passports scheduled for release before that date can do so at the DFA Consular Office before January 7 of next year.

“Those who are unable to claim their passports at the respective DFA Consular Offices before 7 January 2022 must file a new passport application after securing a certificate of unclaimed passport from DFA Aseana or at the DFA Consular Office where they were processed,” it said.

“Passports scheduled for release after December 2020 are not affected and may still be claimed from the DFA Consular Office where they were processed.”

The DFA urged people to claim their passports within 30 days of their scheduled issuance, adding that applicants can authorize others to do so on their behalf “provided the authorized persons comply with the requirements.”
