The Philippine Embassy in Canberra has released a statement that they will be temporarily suspending Mobile Passport missions to Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Darwin for 2020. This is due to the travel restrictions in place across States and Territories in Australia.

The Embassy states “The health and safety of the passport applicants and everyone involved in the mission is the primary consideration of the Embassy. We appreciate the public’s understanding.”

Options for renewal

The Philippine Embassy in Canberra and the Philippine Consulate General in Sydney continues to offer passport renewal services. This is applicable to Filipinos with passport validity of less than six months. Note: this is only available if the travel regulations allow for those that need to travel to Canberra or Sydney.

For Filipinos unable to travel to Canberra or Sydney with expiring passports

If a passport will expire in less than one month, the Embassy advises the following:

Contact the Embassy via email at passport@philembassy.org.au

Contact the nearest Philippine Consulate at least 2 weeks before the passports expire to inquire on the process of extending passport validity.

Expired passports

For expired passports, the Philippine Embassy in Canberra or the Philippine Consulate General in Sydney will accept appointments when travel restrictions have eased.

The Philippine Embassy says that they continue to plan to conduct mobile missions and will monitor COVID-19 restrictions across Australia. Further announcements will be posted on the Embassy website.

Contact the Philippine Embassy via email for further information: passport@philembassy.org.au.
