If you have confirmed travel within the next two weeks, contact the U.S. Embassy in Manila at ACSInfoManila@state.gov to request an appointment for an emergency passport.  Write “emergency passport” in the subject line of your email and attach a copy of your current passport and itinerary.  We cannot issue emergency passports in Cebu.
