The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said it will resume processing passport applications in consular and satellite offices in areas downgraded to MECQ during the last 10 days of August 2021.
Appointments were previously limited due to the two-week lockdown in high-risk areas nationwide.
All consular offices in the National Capital Region and all Temporary Off-Site Passport Services or TOPS will resume operations.
Operations are subject to change depending on the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force, the advisory said.
Applicants are advised to check the DFA website frequently for updates regarding passport appointments.
All DFA offices are limiting the number of applicants' physical presence to make room for social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the public and staff.
All applicants making physical appearances are required to wear face masks and face shields at all times. Bringing your own pen is strongly advised.
