DFA makes pass­port pro­cess­ing ‘in­ter­ac­tive’

Cebu Daily News - - ISLANDS - /IN­QUIRER.NET

Pass­port ap­pli­cants will now im­me­di­ately know the mis­takes or dis­crep­an­cies in their ap­pli­ca­tion through the new­pass­port ap­point­ment sys­tem be­ing im­ple­mented by the De­part­ment of For­eign Af­fairs (DFA).

Through the DFA’s new feed­back mech­a­nism, the pass­port ap­pli­cant is be­ing no­ti­fied through email on the sta­tus of his or her ap­pli­ca­tion, whether there were dis­crep­an­cies in the ap­pli­ca­tion even right be­fore he or she goes back to the DFA of­fice to pick up the pass­port.

This new mech­a­nism elim­i­nates the has­sle for ap­pli­cants who, for some, re­turn sev­eral times be­fore just to sub­mit ad­di­tional re­quire­ment in case the DFA finds dis­crep­an­cies in the ap­pli­ca­tion sub­mit­ted to the pass­port pro­cess­ing di­vi­sion.

Un­der the new feed­back mech­a­nism, the ap­pli­cant is im­me­di­ately in­formed on what other re­quire­ments are needed to process the ap­pli­ca­tion through email.
