If you have an emergency reason for travel in 2-3 weeks, please first check to see if we have an online appointment before your travel date. To check for an appointment, please click on the appropriate passport service on the menu on the left and follow the instructions. If you need to travel prior to our earliest appointment, you may walk in to the Embassy.
To walk in, please come to the Embassy on any working day, between 7:30 a.m. and 12 noon. Click here to see Embassy holidays. Before walking in, please read all the instructions on this page.
Emergencies are generally considered to be:
- a lost or stolen passport with an urgent need for travel within the next 2-3 weeks. For lost and stolen passports without an urgent need for travel, please click here.
- a medical emergency in the United States
- an emergency situation that does not meet the above criteria but is severe enough to warrant emergency action
Please be aware that the rules for emergency passport issuance are strict, and a consular officer will determine if your situation meets the standard for an emergency. If your situation is not considered an emergency, you will need to book an online appointment, and return to the embassy on that day. Emergency passports have the same fees as regular passports but have very limited validity. The passport will expire shortly after your travel to the U.S.
If you believe your situation meets the criteria for an emergency, please bring:
your valid photo ID*
proof of your travel plans (tickets, flight itinerary, confirmation,etc)*
a police report if your passport was stolen*
medical records if your emergency is based on a medical emergency*
a photocopy of your old passport (if available)
please see additional rules for minors on the page entitled “Renew a Passport for a Child (under Age 16)"
- Fees - $135 for applicants age 16 and older; $105 for applicants age 15 and below; in cash (U.S. dollars or Philippine peso equivalent) or credit card
Note: Please see additional rules for minors under the age of 16 on the page titled "Renew a Passport for a Child (Under Age 16)".
*Also bring one photocopy along with the original. Otherwise, you will be charged for the photocopying fee of $1.00 per page at the Embassy.
