US Embassy Manila: Passport Renewals

US Embassy Manila: Passport Renewal Applications Now Being Accepted



Event:  Consular Services and Travel Update
1.  PASSPORTS.  The U.S. Embassy in Manila is now accepting DS-82 U.S. Passport Renewal Application for Eligible Individuals by mail only.  At this time, we are only accepting the DS-82 application.  We can only accept applications by mail with accompanying bank draft.  Please send to:  
ATTENTION: PASSPORT TEAM
American Citizens Services (Consular Section)
U.S. Embassy, 1201 Roxas Boulevard, 1000 Manila

Please send the completed and signed application with your most-recent passport book and a U.S. dollar demand draft.  The US-dollar demand draft should be made out to “U.S. Embassy Manila” for $110 with your application.  There are three (3) local banks participating in this mail-in dollar demand draft program: Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI), Banco De Oro (BDO) and Security Bank (SBC).  We do not accept demand drafts from any other bank.  If an application is sent without the enclosed U.S. dollar demand draft, the application will be returned to you and not processed.  DO NOT INCLUDE CASH WITH YOUR MAIL-IN APPLICATION.  
We are not accepting walk-ins at this time.  If you have immediate or emergency travel, please contact us at +63(2) 5301-2000 or email ACSInfoManila@state.gov.  Please visit our website here for more information on renewing your passport by mail.
Please expect delays in processing, as passport agencies are experiencing a significant backlog due to the COVID-19 crisis.  We are unable to provide an estimate regarding processing times.
2.  COVID-19 TESTING.  Several airlines are now requiring a negative COVID-19 test to board.  Since these requirements vary, please check with your airlines for their requirements well in advance of your flight.
