Directives from the Consulate

  • Those without E-passport could get their passport within a month of acquisition, all things being equal
  • Those involved in out-of-station acquisition and holder of E-passport (Re-issue) takes longer time before processing as the immigration Headquarters has to approve such data switch that occurred between outside acquisition and the original data of applicants already in the data base that alternatively, those in urgent need of their passports are advised to avail themselves the opportunity by coming to the Consulate in New York. It takes a day to complete, all things being equal.




If you have any questions please call  773-443-6516 (text for faster response). Inquiries can also be emailed to

Passport pictures are not needed. They will be taken onsite by the Consulate Staffs.
