May 22, 2011 1:13pm
Passport applicants can now know the status of their applications with the Department of Foreign Affairs Officer of Consular Affairs' Passport Tracking Service (PTS).

The DFA said the PTS is an initiative of its consular affairs' office to enable applicants to check on the status of their passport applications, notably the schedule of release.

In a news release on its website, the DFA said applicants may visit www.dfa.gov.ph and click the PTS icon found there.

Clicking the icon will lead to an online form that requires the following basic information:
  • Full name (First, Middle, Last)
  • Date of birth
  • Cellular phone number and e-mail address
  • Date of filing
  • Date of release
  • Amount paid
  • For pick-up or courier service (name of courier)
"After typing and encoding the information required, applicants will receive a response to their PTS queries through text message or SMS (short messaging system), or an e-mail within two working days upon receipt of such online request," the DFA said. — LBG, GMA News
