How to Renew Philippine Passport in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Renewing your Philippine passport is important since it ensures that the person would be able to safely travel and preserve his constitutional rights as a Filipino citizen. If you are an OFW based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and in need of renewing your passport, here are the guidelines that you have to follow.

There is no Philippine embassy in Dubai (as the Phil. embassy in UAE is located in Abu Dhabi). However, we have a Philippine Consulate General office located in Al Qusais where we can apply for the said renewal of passport.

If you are based in Abu Dhabi, please follow these instructions – How to Renew Your Philippine Passport in Abu Dhabi, UAE

Note: Filipinos are advised to process the application of your new passport 10 months before your existing passport expires as this gives you ample time to wait for the newly issued one. Remember that there are plenty of people who are queuing at the Consulate so it’s better that you don’t wait for your passport to expire before you use it so you can avoid issues while travelling in the future.
