How to renew a Philippine passport in Hong Kong
Philippine passports are renewed at the Philippine Consulate in Hong Kong. It is best to do the passport renewal one year before the passport expiry date. Now, appointments for passport renewals can be booked online, as well as in-person. Making an online appointment booking is recommended in order to save time at the Consulate. The passport renewal takes about six weeks.
A reminder: Do not purchase a flight ticket until after your the passport has been released. If there are delays to the passport renewal process, you may not be able to take your flight.
After collecting the new passport, domestic helpers should also apply for the remaining full visa at HK Immigration.
