Tarlac gov’t offers e-mobile passporting for local folk

Jul 19, 2010

CAPITOL HILL, Tarlac City – The provincial government of Tarlac has urged Tarlaqueños applying for passports (both new and renewal) to go to Metrotown Mall on September 4 instead of joining the long lines at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in Manila or in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga.

Nida Duco, head of the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) here, said that Gov. Vic Yap’s e-passporting, a regular program of the provincial government of Tarlac, brings the services closer to our people.

Duco said applicants must submit requirements for the processing of their papers to the PESO office located at the provincial capitol. Application forms are also available at Duco’s office.

For new applicants, they should bring with them certified true copy of their birth certificate duly authenticated by the National Statistics Office (NSO) and photocopies of at least two valid IDs.

For renewal of passports, applicants should only bring a photocopy of their old passport and two valid IDs. Applicants are no longer required to bring passport-size photos since they will have their pictures taken using e-passport data-capturing machines on the same day.

Duco said that applicants have only until August to submit their application forms and other requirements.

He also announced that “this is a first come first serve basis.” “Dalawang daang aplikante lamang ang mabibigyan ng pagkakataong ito kayat samantalahin na at kumpletuhin ang mga requirements,” Duco said. – Tarlac PIO
