(SPOT.ph) With international travel put in limbo in the last two years, you may have forgotten that your passport had already expired.
But borders are gradually reopening, so it might be time to dust off your passport and schedule an appointment.
While slots are hard to come by, Robinsons Malls recently announced that five new Temporary Off-site Passport Services sites are opening in the country to address the high demand for passport renewal schedules.
The five Temporary Off-site Passport Services (TOPS) are located at Robinsons Place Malolos in Bulacan, Robinsons Angeles and Robinsons Starmills in Pampanga, Robinsons Place Bacolod, and Robinsons Place Iloilo.
Each mall can accept up to 500 appointments per day.
These locations are in addition to the five TOPS sites opened last year at Robinsons Magnolia, Robinsons Novaliches, Robinsons Galleria South, Robinsons Place Lipa, and Robinsons Place Las Piñas.
Here's how to schedule your passport renewal:
- Log on to the Department of Foreign Affairs' Passport Renewal System.
- Tap on "Schedule an Appointment."
- Choose the Site Location and just follow the prompt. Remember that you only have 30 minutes to complete filling out the online form.
