An October 9, 2012, press release from the Department of Foreign Affairs
The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh reiterates its previous advisories to Filipinos in the Kingdom, especially those living in the far-flung provinces of the Eastern and Central Region, and frequent travelers whose passports are about to expire, to renew their passports as early as nine months before the expiry date of the passport.
Filipinos in the Kingdom are advised to inform their employers of the expiry date of their passports to avoid inconvenience as the new electronic passport will be released around one month after filing or renewal application.
All applicants for renewal are advised to schedule an appointment for passport renewal through the Embassy’s website www.philembassy-riyadh.org.
The online appointment system allows the passport applicant to choose the date and time of their preferred appointment. After successful booking of appointment, the system will send a confirmation to the applicant e-mail address.
Due to difficulties in managing appointments made by text messaging, the Embassy no longer accepts appointments by text or phone call.
The Embassy discourages multiple bookings made by a single applicant to maximize the appointment slots of 216 applicants in one day. In the event that an applicant wishes to change his/her appointment schedule, he/she needs to cancel the appointment to allow another applicant to book the vacated slot.
The Philippine Embassy appeals to the different Filipino community organizations in the Kingdom to disseminate the information on the appointment system to their respective members.
