    @Marit_z83 , did some research... got the article below from the philembassy site => philembassy.org.au/component/content/article/75-no-need-to-travel-to-canberra-for-new-philippine-machine-readable-passports-mrp.html

    It says it will take around 4 to 6 weeks processing time?


    "No Need to Travel to Canberra for New Philippine Machine Readable Passports (MRP)

    When the Philippine Embassy began accepting applications for the new Philippine Machine Readable Passports (MRP) last July, it soon became obvious that the requirement for personal appearance when filing applications can be an expensive and time-consuming process for our kababayans.

    The Philippine Embassy thus sought the approval of the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs to allow for personal appearance at Philippine Honorary Consulates/Consulates General in state capitals, making it unnecessary for Filipinos outside the Australian Capital Region (ACT) to travel all the way to Canberra. Participating Honorary Consulates General are Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Darwin and Hobart.

    Below is the alternative way to apply for the Machine Readable Passport:
    1. Applicants should submit the following by mail to the Philippine Embassy in Canberra:
    b. 3 passport photos with royal blue background;2. Upon the receipt of the completed forms and fees, the Embassy shall process the application and issue the MRP computer-generated form (MRP-CGF).
    3. The MRP-CGF will be mailed by Express Post to the Philippine Honorary Consulate / Consulate General nearest the place of residence of the applicant.
    4. The Philippine Honorary Consulate / Consulate General will contact the applicant for personal appearance.
    5. The applicant will confirm the encoded data in the MRP-CGF and affix his signature and thumbmark on the space provided in the presence of the Philippine Honorary Consular Official. For the verification service, the Philippine Honorary Consulate General are authorized to collect verification fee in the amount of AU$45.00.
    6. Any error or disparity in the data of the MRP-CGF should be reported to the Honorary Consulate / Consulate General which will request for the issuance of a new and correct MRP-CGF from the Embassy.
    7. The Philippine Honorary Consulate General will mail back the signed and thumbmarked MRP-CGF back to the Embassy in Canberra, with a written verification that the applicant has confirmed the data in the form, signed and thumbmarked the form in his presence.
    8. The Embassy will forward the accomplished MRP-CGF to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila for passport production.
    9. The Embassy will notify the applicant once his passport is ready. Applicant will be required to mail his current and valid passport to the Embassy for cancellation.
    10. The Embassy will send by Express Post the new MRP passport to the applicant upon receipt of applicant's current passport.
    11. Passport issuance time is around 4 to 6 weeks from the time the accomplished MRP-CGF is received by the Embassy.

    It will be noted that the additional postage fee of AUD30.00 is necessary to shoulder the mailing expense of the MRP-CGF from the Embassy to the Honorary Consulate / Consulate General and vice-versa, in lieu of the personal appearance by the applicant at the Embassy.
    Filipinos in the ACT can continue to file their applications in person with the Philippine Embassy in Canberra."

    Hello, submit your application for renewal as soon as possible, mine took a while. I rang one of the guys from Canberra, he said MINIMUM 2 months. (4 to 6 weeks to processed the passport) Hindi kasama yung time for postage and delivery. I submitted my passport first week on November, I was hoping to get it 1st week of January. Hanggang ngayon wala pa. Hopefully, it gets better because they will be issuing new passports. Either way, submit it ASAP. Good luck.

    hi jayjee, thanks for the info you provided on alternative way of renewing passports. Nandito ko sa Adelaide and it would be a lot easier for me if I do that. Kahit isang libong documents pa ang hingin nila I'm ok with it as long as I don't have to go anywhere outside the state. Wla akong pera para dyan, lol. But can you provide a link where you got the info from. I tried the one that's already there but it only takes me back to this page. thanks.
