PH Embassy Kuala Lumpur Announces Philippine ePassport Renewal Center (PaRC)

To all Filipinos in Malaysia, please be advised that there is now a new process for you to renew your Philippine passport. The Department of Foreign Affairs has partnered with BLS International center in providing a new service location to renew your passport at Al Shoumoukh Towers.

The usual process for Filipinos is to visit the Embassy of the Philippines in Kuala Lumpur for an appointment/appearance. But with this new process taking place, it allows OFWs to have another option in renewing their passports in Doha. There is a convenience fee of RM 113 if you process the renewal at BLS. Take note that this convenience fee is on top of the regular passport Consular fee (worth RM 288).

The great thing about this new office is that they are open 6 days a week and you can simply book a schedule between 10am to 7pm. So even if you are off from your duty hours, you can have an appointment to renew your passport.
