How to Apply Philippine Passport for Newborn with/without PSA Birth Certificate

Is it possible to apply a passport for my newborn kahit wala pa sya PSA (formerly known as NSO) Birth Certificate?? Yes, we can.

Below are the requirements for Passport Application (Minor New) na makikita din sa official website ng DFA. –click HERE.


  1. Children 7 years old and below do not need to have an online appointment.
  2. Fill-up the Application Form (download here)
  3. Personal appearance of minor applicant and either parent or authorized adult companion (bring valid ID)
  4. Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Birth Certificate / Certified True Copy Authenticated by PSA formerly known as NSO – located at Solicarel Buildging I and II, Ramon Magsaysay Blvd., Sta. Mesa, Manila (Near LRT2 Pureza Station) website click here
  5. Marriage Certificate is required if only one parent is accompanying the child
    • If parents are unmarried, an Affidavit of Support and/or Consent executed by the Mother will be required if she is not accompanying the child
    • If Affidavit of Support and/or Consent is executed abroad, it must be authenticated by the Philippine Embassy or Consulate

Heto ang aming naging experience:

Birth Certificate. Check po muna natin sa PSA if available na ang Birth Certificate ni baby. If hindi pa, katulad ng sa baby ko that time, kumuha muna ako ng CERTIFIED TRUE COPY sa Munisipyo. Dalhin ang Certified True Copy Birth Certificate sa PSA for AUTHENTICATION. Maghanda din po tayo ng pambayad. (Reminder: Don’t skip this step kasi hindi po tatanggapin sa DFA kapag hindi authenticated and Certified True Copy Birth Certificate)

Application Form. Mas maganda na magdownload at makapag fill-up na tayo ng application form para pagdating sa DFA deretso na agad sa loob at hindi mo na aalalahanin pa ang magsulat. (download here) Pero kung wala tayo madownload, available din sa DFA ang application form.


Process. Hanapin and courtesy lane for minors at doon pumila, para ipasa ang mga requirements. Maghanda na din po ng pambayad. (you can check the fees here) Magready din ng coins kasi ipapa-photo copy sa inyo ang mga form.

Picture. Hindi na kailangan ng picture kasi sila na din ang magpipicture. Meron silang higaan ng baby, kung saan kukuhanan siya ng picture. Tulog si baby that time kaya ginising siya ng wet wipes!

Mother Passport Renewal. Sumabay na din ako ng Passport Renewal kay baby. Tinanong din ako sa window kung gusto ko na din palitan ang last name ko sa passport (Bring your PSA Marriage Certificate). Pwede po sumabay one adult per minor.

Pick-up or Delivery. Last step natin ay ang pagbibigay ng delivery address sa courier nila sa DFA kung delivery po ang pipiliin natin.


FAQ (Mga natanong ko din sa sarili ko before applying the passport)

Can I apply baby’s passport at 2 months of age? 

Yes, pwede po. Certified True Copy (authenticated by PSA formerly known as NSO) if hindi pa available ang PSA Birth Certificate niya.

Do I have to bring Picture?

No, hindi na po kailangan, dahil doon na siya kukuhanan ng picture. Paano? may bed sila na pang baby (parang sa mga pedia) ihihiga sya and then Picture!

Can I apply passport too with the baby without appointment?

Yes, sumabay din ako kay baby ng renewal of my passport.

Do I have to dress my baby with collared top?

No, basta po desente and no sleeveless.

Pwede ba magapply sa DFA sa Malls?

Yes, sa DFA SM Megamall kami nagapply and pwede naman po. 🙂

Disclaimer: Requirements might change please check DFA official website click HERE.

Sana nakatulong po ako sa inyo mga mommies and mommy to be na nagplaplano iapply agad ng passport babies nila. Lalo na po sa ating nasa ibang bansa ang asawa. Safe travels and don’t worry about baby’s passport kasi pwede sya agad iapply!

  1. hi! thanks for the info! just to give an update, i went to psa today to authenticate my newborn’s lcr copy of birth certicate. unfortunately, they don’t authenticate anymore. we just have to wait for the release of psa b.cert in 2-3 weeks after it has been endorsed for faster processing. d rin updated website ng dfa, kc sb dun if psa b.cert is not available, pwd ung lcr copy na authenticated by psa, un pla d na cla ngpoprocess ng ganun sa psa.


    1. Hi CJ, thank you for the updated info, this is very helpful. Nagbago na pala sila, last 2017 po nung nagprocess po ako ng passport ni baby. And Certified True Copy lang po talaga yung dala ko na pinauthenticate sa PSA. Thank you so much sa update niyo po to inform others na din. I will search and include this po, para mainform din iba. Thank you so much!!


  2. Thank you for the info Mommy Jen and CJ – just want to find out which PSA branch did you go to for endorsement of faster processing?
