US Passport Renewal

- US Embassy Philippines, instructions will be a little different when it comes to payment and delivery so make sure to read thoroughly and all the pertinent links on this link. https://ph.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen...dity-passport/

Some notes:

These 3 banks can only be used for money orders BPI, BDO, SBC and the bank will only accept payment in dollars plus add an additional $10 - $20 for bank fees in dollars only. Bring your passport and permanent resident card to the bank also, they make a copy for their records and they have you fill out a form. Careful these banks if you're not a member try to get you to join or say you have to join but that's not true and you'll probably have to call a bank manager to get that cleared up, this whole process took me about an hour.

Shipping service Air 21, use only the number listed for the US Embassy it's listed in the above link, Air 21 has a branch there (lessons learned again). US Embassy prefers you use Air 21, I used Air 21 and it worked very well they came to my home picked up my documents and when my passport was completed they delivered it back to my home once again, they have a tracking service it was very professional.

Passport Photos: We aren't allowed to wear suits so don't let the guy taking your photo suggest putting on a suit, read the State Department instructions (Online fill in passport form) thoroughly on photo size, back round and clothing worn on how the photo is to be taken and write those instructions down for the Photographer.

Most of this information is listed on the link above, when the Air 21 driver arrives they'll have you fill out two blank forms of paper listing everything you gave them all documents, photos etc... in duplicate and you both sign each paper the driver gets a copy the other is yours so have all your documents placed in a brown shipping envelope (any book store will sell these) marked with the US Embassy Address given on link above, Air 21 has their own non tear plastic shipping bag so they'll put everything inside.

If you live outside of Luzon there are for US Citizens an outreach group from the US Embassy Manila and to get those notifications you sign up for emails on the State Department website, Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, they also handle passports as well as many other things such as Social Security https://step.state.gov/step/
