Updating address on passport
Now during your Schedule you have to line up outside the DFA Baguio office at the area designated by the DFA Baguio Guards, and make sure you line up according to your designated number.
The Guards will only allow around five person at a time to enter the DFA Baguio Office. Line up at the Information Area – now once you are allowed to enter you are to line up at the information area, you cannot miss it, it is just fronting the entrance to the DFA Baguio office, it is here where the DFA Baguio Staff would verify your documents so it is time for you to bring out your application form, your Identification Card, and Your Supporting Documents.
Then they have to go back to their province secure their form 1A and fall in line again from four AM? Payment Processing – now assuming you passed the Processing Area you will now have to pay the Passport Fee, the DFA Baguio Officer at the Processing Area will prepare a receipt and will ask you which type of processing would you prefer. Now just wait for your name to be called and just follow their instructions as you will now electronically input your biometrics and your signature, the DFA Baguio officer will input your data and will ask you to check if such are accurate. So again wait for your name to be called, the questions are pretty basic and are just for verification purposes.
In my experience the guard at SM directed me to go down at the Banco De Oro Session Road area where the crowd had gathered, SM security does not allow people on the SM grounds prior to six in the morning. Look for The List – now, during the time when i went to process the passport i learned that the day before there was a huge confusion on the queue so some applicants volunteered to make a system where a paper where those arriving at the Banco De Oro area will list their names.In his own way he is helping others by informing them about what's new in the City of Baguio.He firmly believes that there are more reasons to highlight the positive than the negative.
