Anyhow, if you have planned to get a passport here in Davao City, either a new passport or renewal, you need to come as early as 7:00 o’clock in the morning even if the office opens at 10:00 in the morning. As I have mentioned earlier, the Department Foreign Affairs or DFA will only accept up to 500 persons every day. And take note, there is only one DFA here in Mindanao, which means, the applicants are coming from all over Mindanao.
