      Where do you plan to apply for passport validity extension? Is it in the Philippine Embassy there in Japan? If they accept extension of passport’s validity, you don’t need to have an affidavit. Here in the Manila, Filipinos who have expiring passports but needed to travel immediately need to submit their airline tickets and other documents that would prove the urgency of their trip. Hope this helps.

    I would like to ask because my daughter is going to travel going back here in Kuwait. Her passport is going to expire on April and we just need to extend her passport so that she can travel. We already booked her flight this February but unfortunately i did’nt know that there should be a six month validity for the passport for her to travel. Me and my wife is here abroad and i send the passport to my brother to extend it. My questions are:
    1. What are the documents that they wuld be needing for extending the passport of the minor? She is only 5 yrs old.
    2. Is it possible for my brother to go with her in DFA with only the passport with them?

      Hi Ricky! I hope aside from the passport, you also provided a photocopy of the roundtrip ticket purchased for the trip. The application will be for approval of the DFA personnel at the Director’s Office. Yes, your brother can go with her as long as he can prove that he is the legal guardian of your child. Hope this helps.🙂

      Hi Glenn. I am so sorry but I cannot help you with that. I have no idea if the Philippine Embassy in Singapore would allow you to get an extension knowing that your passport is still valid. Does the embassy have expedite (rush) processing? If they have, apply for a new passport instead. Or go there and ask them about your case. Tell them everything you need to say why you need a new passport as soon as possible. At least you know what to do. I wish you luck. Hope everything would be fine.🙂
