e-Passport Renewal at the Philippine Embassy in Singapore

One of the basic requirements when traveling is that your passport should have at least 6 months validity prior to its expiration date. Whilst, when visiting a country that needs visa, the embassy requires at least 2 blank pages of your passport. It is good to note that the new maroon coloured passport is 44 pages compared to the old green coloured passport that is only 32 pages. While, I have 1 more year before my passport expires, I needed to apply for early renewal as there is not enough blank pages for immigration stamp and to accommodate space for visa application.

The detailed guide in passport application for renewal can be found in the succeeding links:

1. For Filipinos living in Singapore, you can download the application form for renewal at: http://www.philippine-embassy.org.sg/wp-content/uploads/forms/consular-epassport-application.pdf . Fill in the form completely.

2. The next step is to set an appointment which can be done through email or you can submit it in person at the Philippine Embassy at Window 9. But why waste time when you can do it by email?

3. Once your appointment is fixed, you can proceed to prepare the basic requirements listed here: http://www.philippine-embassy.org.sg/consular/passport/application-renewal/. And that’s it.

4. On the date of your appointment, please make sure that you have the complete set of requirements:

> Employment Pass;

> Current Passport;

> Appointment Slip;

> Completed e-Passport Application Form; and

> A passport fee of SGD $102 in cash

> For Work Permit holders, they are required to bring the copy of their Employment Contract

By the way, the processing takes at least 4 weeks up to 6 weeks. And the collection can be done only on weekdays. No collection on Sundays. If you are lucky, you can set an appointment for application during Sunday.

If you need further information, please contact the embassy at:

Embassy of the Philippines (Singapore)

    1. Just walk in to the embassy located at the Nassim Rd. Bring the necessary requirements for passport renewal and that’s it. The embassy will give you further advice on what to do next once you have fixed an appointment.

  1. I am recently residing in Sri lanka and my passport is expiring on Nov. 2013, the problem is I can’t get my passport renewed here as per Consulate General in Sri lanka they stop processing for renewals. Can I do my renewal in Singapore?

    1. Hi,
      I’m not sure about your situation. You can renew your passport at the Philippine Embassy in Singapore from the from the basic premise that you are a resident here. Otherwise, you should do it in the Philippines I think.


  2. The ship will make a first quit in Freeport, Bahamas, where it will unload six motor yachts, one sport fishing
    boat and one sailboat. For your much more adventurous there
    are ‘learn to sail’ holidays. But our time was a lot too brief I just
    wanted to explore by myself so I politely declined.

  3. Greate post. Keep posting such kind of information on your blog.

    1. Kailangan mong mag-set ng appointment – schedule for renewal. Kapag me schedule ka na, ihanda mo naman lahat ng requirements na kailangan. Maaring tanungin ka ng embassy kung ano ang dahilan ng hindi mo agad pagri-renew. Maging handa sa iyong kasagutan.

  9. hi! i need an advice….my passport going to expire this coming july and my working permit expire also this comping june….then i don’t want to renew already because my family need my present in my house.so still i can go back Philippineseven if my passport going to expire ?please help me ….

    1. You can ask the embassy should they allow you to travel as you have mentioned the expiration date of your passport is July w/c falls in the 6 months validity. You may tell them you will renew it in the Philippines. Sometimes it’s a case to case basis. State your reason and see how they response. Good luck!

  10. My passports expire April 19 i want to renew here but i no enough time to collect my passport because i go back home April 15 i check the available appointment on March 27 early that don’t have.

      1. Hi Mary, it is best that you contact the embassy as they are the (proper) authority to advice your situation.

  11. Can I renew my passport a year before its expiration? I am working in SG and I am waiting for the result of my job application in Canada and I wish to renew my passport before they i submit my requirements. Processing here takes about 8 weeks. Is it possible to renew my passport in the Philippines authorize someone?

    1. Yes, you can. That’s what I did. And you can have it after 4 weeks. When you renew, you can cite your situation. Especially if you need to travel, the embassy will put priority on your request. Good luck for your job application in Canada! 🙂

    1. Passport renewal has nothing to do with how long you are employed by your employer, if it’s about to expire you have to renew definitely. Please take sometime to read the requirements, it’s there^

  15. Hello there! I just wanna ask if i can renew my passport thru online even i am worked to my employer for 7 mos.only?? If its yes…what r the documents that i need to prepare??? Thnkz and more power.

  16. hi.hello…..i a really confused they say that if u havent live or work in sg for 2 yrs u cannot renew ur passport by urself…so u must go through agent…how is it possible….

    1. Hi Anabel, am not sure about your situation. I’ve renewed my passport in Singapore 2X without an agency. The first time I renew it I was not even living in Singapore for a year. I had to do that for my visa application to Europe to be approved. You know the 6 months validity stuff.

      Maybe if you have an agent, ask them, or better contact the embassy directly to enlighten you about your situation. Hope it helps!

  17. hello Mdm….tanong ko lng po kung ung standard employment contract is hawak po b tlg ng agency?? ung ns amo ko po kc wlng sticker ng POLO….sk hindi po b ako entitled mgrenew ng passport thru online kapag wl pkong 2 yrs n ngwowork s amo?salamat po…

Hindi po batid ng aking kaalaman kung may iba bang kalakaran o saklaw ang mga alituntunin pagdating sa kasambahay. Makabubuti po sigurong magsadya kayo ng personal sa ating embahada upang maliwangan ang inyong mga pag aagam agam. Salamat po sa inyong pagbisita.

On a side note, I encourage you po Ate to express yourself in a language that you are most comfortable. When you write to the embassy using our vernacular, they can assist you better.

  23. I plan to go for holiday back in the Philippines on Dec 2015 this year but my passport is expiring on February 2016. Am I allowed to go back to Philippines and renew my passport there? And, if allowed, what is the minimum days processing of passports? Thanks!

    1. Your planned travel in December falls short for the 6 months passport validity. Why not renew your passport at the Philippine Embassy in SG before you go for holiday. Give yourself at least 1 month, 2 months max for the processing. They allow advance passport renewal especially for travel reasons.

  24. My passport going to expire on july 15. My appointment for renewal will be on march 5 which is the earliest date available. Im going back to philippines on march 15 for urgent important appointment and i need to come back to singapore on march 29. And also i need to renew and not extend mt passport cause my S Pass will expires on june 5 and need to renew my S Pass. Hoping for your reply. Thank you .

  25. Hi is there any way for urgent renewal of passport. since my employer want to renew my service contract for one year again. but the problem is my passport will going to expire on 5th October 2015. My appointment to Philippines embassy is on June 8, 2015. but by employer ask by new passport on June 2, 2015 for renewal of my S-Pass.

    1. Hi Edwin,
      As far as I remember the Philippines Embassy (SG) accommodate urgent passport renewal. Contact or email them. State clearly your reason why you urgently need it. They will assist you accordingly.

    1. Hi po ate. Ang best po na maipapayo ate ay pakibisitahin nyo yung website ng ating embahada sa Singapore. Hindi ko po alam pagdating sa kasambahay kung ang dapat po bang nag aayos ng passport renewal ay agency. Kung may time po kayo ay makabubuti po sigurong kayo na ang mag asikaso at wag po kayong mag atubili magsadya sa embahada. Sanay nakatulong po ako kahit papano.

    1. Hi kuya Joel,
      Usually po, base po sa experience ko, nag a accommodate po ang Embahada ng Pilipinas sa Singapore for advance renewal of passport due to reasons that you have cited, kung halos mapuno na po ng chop ang inyong pasaporte at wala nang espasyo bibigyan po kayo ng ating embahada ng prayoridad para ma renew kagad ang inyong pasaporte. Ipaliwanag nyo po sa ating embahada ang inyong kalagayan at kayo po ay bibigyan ng naayon na kasagutan at solusyon sa inyong sitwasyon. Salamat po at maligayang paglalakbay!

  30. Hi Mafey, just want to let you know this blog is helpful and you’ve been so accommodating replying to all the questions kahit na redundant na halos 🙂 keep it up 🙂

    1. Alam n’yo po ate kung valid pa ang passport n’yo for the next 6 months bago kayo uuwi, makakapag travel po kayo pero kung hindi na po, kelangan n’yo po itong i-renew. Paki contact na lang po ang ating Embahada sa Singapore upang makatanggap kayo ng mas malinaw na payo. Salamat po.

  33. Hello sir and maam,,i want to ask how to request for make an appointment for renewal passport,,thank

    1. Hi po ate Crasvel,
      Your question has been asked many times. Please take some time to read the thread. You would find the answer there. Thank you!

  34. Good day i would like to ask. My passport will be expire on nov. 14 2016, and my s pass will be expire on october 14 2016, my appointment date of renewal was on july 28 2016 is there will be a problem? Do i need to request a early appointment of renewal? Please let me know thank yoy.

    1. Hi Mark,
      You did not clarify which renewal are you referring to. You’ve mentioned your passport and working pass are both about to expire. And it surely needs to be renewed. Both. (For working pass, if you decide to continue working). And passport, definitely, so you can travel.

  35. Hello ask lg me po first time ko mg renew ng passport dto sa singapore at first tym ko mgtrabaho dto. Ng set na ako ng appointment sa phil embassy through online ung tanong ko lng po if kailangan pa ba na sumama ung employer ko???plz rply po asap thanks

    1. Hi Sheranel,
      Sa tingin ko hindi kailangan ang employer sa sa pagri-renew ng passport dahil personal mo namang dokumento ang iri-renew maliban na lamang marahil kung may bahagi ba sa form na kailangan ng signature ng employer? Kung nais mong makasiguro, paki kontak na lang ng direkta ang Embahada ng Pilipinas sa Singapore.

    1. Hello po ate Loyola,
