The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) have issued an advisory late Tuesday night for the delay of release of e-Passport. According to the DFA, applicants who are expecting their passports to be issued for the week were advised to contact their office.

The Foreign Affairs Department explained that a machine breakdown would cause a “delay of two to three days” on the release of ePassport due from January 28, to February 2, 2013.

Those who are expecting their electronic passports (ePassports) are advised to call (632) 836-7745, (632) 836-7747 or e-mail DFA-OCA at [email protected] to make “the necessary and appropriate arrangements on how the passports can be delivered to them.”

DFA also noted that the DFA-OCA was prepared to issue machine-readable passports on a limited basis in cases of extreme emergency. They stated that the operations would start to normalize by February 4, 2013.

Passport applicants in Manila may secure an appointment by logging on at the website www.epassport.com.ph or by calling (632) 737-1000.
