After 12 cities and eight municipalities, Passport on Wheels go to Taguig

After going to 12 cities, eight municipalities and serving more than 25,000 passport applicants all around the country, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Passport on Wheels (PoW) will go to Taguig City on March 10, Saturday.
Under the program done in partnership with the Taguig City Civil Registry Office, DFA personnel will personally go to the city to assist its residents in securing appointment slots and in processing their passports.
The PoW will be conducted at the Lakeshore Hall in Barangay Lower Bicutan on Saturday.
“We are aware of the high demand of online passport appointments, that’s why we think that the Passport on Wheels will surely bring convenience to the residents,” Taguig City Civil Registry Office officer-in-charge Cynthia Ignacio explained.
She noted the DFA has four PoW vehicles which can process 500 passports each. According to Ignacio, the PoW in Taguig will cater to 1,800 residents who earlier had filed their requirements with the city’s Civil Registry Office during the application period that ran from Jan. 23 to Feb. 23, 2018.
The final approval of these pre-registered applicants will be done by DFA personnel on March 10. Once approved, the data capture process—picture taking, biometrics and signing—of the applicant will take place. The applicant’s passport will then be delivered straight to their houses.
While waiting for their turn, applicants will be offered free snacks, refreshments and medical services to ensure their comfort and safety.
“We are very happy to have this opportunity from the Department of Foreign Affairs because it allows the community to experience a breezy procedure in processing their passports. In return, the city will continue to do its part in assisting and making this activity a success,” Ignacio added.
The PoW is a continuation of the city’s annual Mobile Passport Services which catered to Taguigeños since 2011. Apart from this, the CRO organizes mass weddings, provides free birth registration services, and even issues, for free, certified true copies of birth certificates.
