Step 1: Filling-up the DS-82 FORM
Fill out electronically and print the DS-82 Application for a U.S. Passport wizard form. If you experience trouble with this Passport Application Wizard, click here for Form DS-82 (PDF format)(PDF 81.3 KB).
Step 2: PAYMENT METHODS (choose between two options)
Decide on your method of payment:
Please include the following:
Completed and signed DS-82 application form
Your most recent passport and photocopy of the passport personal data page
Two pieces 2″x 2″ photos (Starting November 1, 2016, eye glasses will no longer be allowed in passport photos, except in rare medically-documented circumstances)
Proof of Name change (if applicable)
Do NOT enclose CASH payment!
Emergency Travel in less than 2 weeks?
You may walk in to the Embassy only if you have a valid emergency travel and there is not enough time to process the full-ten year passport which normally takes 2-3weeks to complete if payment was done in “cash” at the Embassy Manila and longer if application and payment were done in at the American Consular Agency in Cebu. If a U.S. dollar demand draft was enclosed with the application, please take note that there is still a 15-day clearing period after the check was remitted to the Embassy cashier before the new passport can be released to the customer.
In all cases, please allow a few more days before an applicant is notified by email regarding payment instructions (if payment option 2 was selected) since the large volume of mailed-in applications received by the Embassy still have to go through the normal receiving, routing, and data entry procedures.
If you think you would be needing an emergency passport issuance and there are no available passport appointment slots on our online calendar prior to your intended travel date, you may walk-in at the Embassy with your confirmed itinerary or purchared ticket. If there are available slots before your travel date, we request that you book an appointment and bring proof of your urgent travel during your appointment.
Check for availability of appointment slots if applying for emergency passport by clicking here.
If there are no available slots available, follow our walk-in procedures by reading under Emergency Passports.
Step 4: DELIVERY OF COMPLETED PASSPORT
Once cash payment has been made and application has been approved, the passport will be processed and delivered within 2-3 weeks. The expired U.S. passport (duly cancelled by the Embassy) will be delivered together with the new U.S. passport. Note: Please expect a much longer turn-around time for the passport delivery if the application was initially submitted or payment was made at the American Consular Agency in Lahug, Cebu. For demand draft payments, the passport will not be released until the 15-working day clearing period has passed (counting starts from the time the check was remitted to the Embassy cashier and which may not necessarily be the same date that the application was received)
