      Pasenya na ha, pero hindi kasi ako sigurado. But you can always ask naman yung mga tao dun sa DFA kapag nag-process ka na ng application mo. Sabihin mo na lang na hindi mo napansin na mali yung nalagay mo nung nag-fill out ka ng form online kaya kung pwede eh baguhin mo. I think kung minor detail or info lang yun, pwede naman. 🙂
