  Coming Soon: Online Fee Payment for Adult Passport Renewals 


Currently, all U.S. citizens in the Philippines who wish to renew their passports by mail must pay using a dollar demand draft obtained at one of three banks or arrange for in-person payment of the application fee at the Embassy in Manila or Consular Agency in Cebu.  We understand that this situation is inconvenient for U.S. citizens and have been working on a solution.

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that U.S. Embassy and Consular Agency in the Philippines have been selected as a pilot location to allow eligible U.S. citizens residing in the Philippines to pay their DS-82 passport renewal fees online.  The pilot program is expected to begin in the next few weeks.

We will send another announcement when this online payment pilot system has launched, along with specific instructions to help you confirm your eligibility to renew your passport by mail and pay the required fee online.  Please monitor our website and your email for updates on our mail-in passport renewal program and the online fee payment option.
