@FilipinosInCanada

If you are a Filipino citizen and you’re coming to Canada to visit, study, work or immigrate, you’ll need a valid travel document or Philippine passport. Here’s how to renew Philippine Passport in Canada.

WHO NEEDS A VALID PHILIPPINE PASSPORT IN CANADA?

Philippine citizens who are in Canada to visit, study and work are all required to have a valid Philippine Passport with the appropriate Temporary Resident Visas attached. The validity of Temporary Resident Visas and other subsequent documents such as Work Permits are dependent on the validity of the Philippine Passport.

Philippine citizens who are in Canada as Permanent Residents (but not yet Canadian Citizens) need valid Philippine Passports to board aircraft and cross borders.

Dual citizens of the Philippines and Canada can apply for both a Canadian Passport and a Philippine Passport, but are required to present a valid Canadian passport upon return to Canada.

Canadian Citizens do not require Philippine Passports.

The Philippine Embassy and Consulate Generals advise that processing of Philippine Passports takes a minimum of eight weeks, and may take even longer due to circumstances beyond their control, such as weather disturbances in the Philippines.

The Philippine Embassy and Consulate Generals reserve the right to request for additional documents to prove your citizenship or identity pursuant to the Philippine Passport Law and the Foreign Service Act.
