The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) is happy to announce that their newest Consular Office (CO) in Dasmariñas, Cavite, is operational. Yes, so, people in Cavite who would need appointments with the DFA, need not go to DFA ASEANA.
To be able to meet the demands of people, the DFA opened its newest consular office in Cavite City. The newest DFA Cavite is located in SM City Dasmariñas. They’re open from 10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M., and from Mondays ’til Saturdays.
Easier and faster transactions
Are you from Cavite or any neighboring provinces and cities? If so, then the newest DFA consular office is a blessing to you! No need for you to go to DFA’s main office at Pasay to get a passport, you can proceed to DFA Dasmariñas.
Being the newest addition to the roster of Consular Offices, DFA Dasmariñas is the 35th site to be opened for passport appointments, renewals, etc. More so, it’s also part of the eight consular offices opened with partnership from SM Supermalls.
Inauguration of the DFA Cavite
Atty. Brigido J. Dulay, DFA Undersecretary for Civilian Security and Consular Concerns, led the inauguration of the newest DFA consular office. It was celebrated and participated by DFA staff and officials, as well as Dasmariñas local government unit (LGU) officials and SM Mall partners.
Can I do a walk-in passport application there?
We understand your need for a passport. However, as per the directive being followed since August 2018, all passport applications need to be done through the DFA ePayment Portal first.
What this means is that all passport applicants need to do an online appointment first before proceeding to any consular office. Don’t worry, though, because DFA Cavite is already accepting applicants.
