The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) headed by Secretary Allan Peter Cayetano, has launched Passport on Wheels (POW) to speed up passport processing and decongest the consular offices in Metro Manila and other regional offices. The Passport in Wheels Program will have four (4) buses that can serve at least 500 people a day – a total of 2000 slots per day.
“Alam ko na malaking convenience ang mabibigay nito sa mga residente ng ating mga barangay. I hope they will take this opportunity to process their passport applications. We also look forward in the next months that this project will not only be extended in the National Capital Region but also in the provinces.” – Senator Cynthia Villar
As of February 15, 2018, the Passport on Wheels Program has reached 8 cities and 6 municipalities, with a total of 13,887 people being served. In the months to come, the Department of Foreign Affairs will continue to roll its Passport on Wheels out to more cities and provinces in the country, as we strive to bring our services closer to the people.
