Question by Julienne: How to renew a Philippine passport in Florida?
I am supposed to go back to the Philippines this August before I start college. I called the Philippine Consulate in Miami, Fl and the representative said that I have to go to Washington, D.C. This is absurd. I live in Florida and would have to drive all the way up to DC? Obviously I cannot fly. There are few people telling me that I can still do it by mail or I can just go to the office in Miami and have them renew it…PLEASE HELP!!

It has to be renewed in person. If you are in Florida it must be renewed at the Philippine embassy in Washington, DC. If you’re planning on having a new passport in August you are most likely too late as the embassy in Washington sends the application to the DFA in Manila by diplomatic pouch. The new passport is produced by the DFA in Manila and sent back to Washington by diplomatic pouch. Then, they FedEx it to you. It takes about 6 to 8 weeks.
