Once you have gathered all the requirements, go to the Philippine Embassy in Manama. The working hours at the Consular Section are from 8 am to 3 pm, Sundays to Thursdays.

Replacement of a lost or damaged passport will be treated as a new application. There will be a 15-day waiting period to enable the Embassy to verify the issuance of the lost passport with the concerned authority. Once it is verified, check to make sure that all your information is correct, have your biometrics (e.g. photograph, fingerprints) captured, and pay the fees. Don’t forget to keep the receipt!

Wait for your new passport (processing time is around) 28-60 days. The Embassy regularly posts the list of passports that can be claimed on its Facebook page, so be sure to check it often. Bring your payment receipt and a valid ID upon claiming your new passport.

Additional Reminders

  • Personal appearance is a must for all applicants.
  • Wear proper attire. Sleeveless clothing, spaghetti-strapped tops, sando, tube tops, plunging necklines, and the like are prohibited.
  • Earrings and colored contact lenses are not allowed during biometrics capture.
  • Passports that are not claimed beyond six (6) months will be canceled.
