How to renew Green Passport to Machine-Readable Passport April 7, 2010

If you're green passport is still valid for more than 6 months and you're in the Philippines for a vacation for more than 1 week you can renew your Passport in DFA and have it "RUSH" which takes 7 days. It will cost you 750Php. If you renew in the Philippine Embassy then you need to pay S$85.

Step 1
Get the form online to fill-up and prepare requirements listed in the application form or in .

Photocopy personal particulars of your passport and IC, E-Pass, S-Pass or Workpass front and back because the nearest Photocopying machine in Philippine Embassy is in Tanglin Mall.

If you plan to take an id picture in the embassy itself then prepare small bills like S$2 or coins. Inside there's a Self-Serve Photobooth. You don't need to cut the pictures. During submission they will do it for you.

Bring some reading materials, refreshments, fan, pen, paste and scissors just in case. If you came in late then you better prepare for a long wait. Make sure you get a queue number right away.

Step 2

In the claim stub it indicates the date and time for you to come back. Bring your old passport, IC, S$85 and claim stub. Give the claim stub in Window <> and wait for your name to be called. Once called double-check the details of your new passport and your done.

Step 3

If you are a PR then you need to login to using your Singpass to update your Re-Entry Permit (REP) of your new Passport Number. Once you updated it you can print your new REP already and wait for 14 days for the approval letter to be received.
