Passport is expired

joyousmasterjoyousmaster Total Reaction Points: 18Member
Hello, nakareceive po ako ng invitation last May 18 and we're given 60 days (til July) to apply visa.
Eh ang problema po ung anak ko eh expired ang passport niya. When I checked website ng DFA, full na ang appointment until August.

Question po:
1. Pwede ba mag walk in sa DFA for passport renewal? If may nakatry na, kahit sang branch ba pwede or sa Main branch lang? I've been calling DFA kasi hindi sila sumasagot sa hotline, even sent a message sa FB, wala din reply

2. Or, pwede ba mag apply ng visa kahit expired ang passport. I'll just show sa officer yung schedule ng renewal by August or September.

Another question
1. If nakareceive ako ng invitation before July 1, maapektuhan ba kmi ng changes na mangyayari like price increase, other rules, etc if in case na after July 1 kami maglodge?

Thanks po sa mga sasagot
