Passport renewal is just like going to Baguio from Paranaque. It will take you 4hours!
I called DFA for appointment 3rd week of April and got June 8.
We parked at S&R and had lunch - it felt like having lunch at Costco. We walked our way to DFA and entered the compound at 12:15pm for our 1:00pm appointment.
It was a breeze from the gate until you get your number. That's where we waited for more than 2hours for our number to be called.Then we went to the Cashier at the second floor. No line. Then we went to photo capturing where we waited for another 2hours.
Haayyy. A passport I will use for 5years will bear my stressed face.
