Early of 2017, slots for passport appointment are closing one by one much to the frustration of many applicants. This did not change by the start of 2018 where an increase of over 100k slots was added but still, this addition did not cater every past applicant and even the new ones.

UPDATE: How to renew your PASSPORT online.
Due to the increasing backlog, many Filipino are cursing the incompetence of the Department of Foreign Affairs or DFA in opening more slots to cater all those who wants to apply or renew their passport. The passport appointment system was controversial in January of 2018 due to the slots being fully booked until March of the same year causing many workers and travelers so much inconvenience.
This is why to accommodate the influx of applicants, TheDepartment of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano released a statement on Thursday announcing that the DFA will open about 100,000 appointment slots for those who want to apply for a passport and those who wished to renew their passport.
