Philippine Passport extended the validity to 10 years
Updated: Jan 23, 2018
Philippine passports will now be valid for 10 years from the previous five years.
This after President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act (RA) No.10928 Wednesday, amending Section 10 of RA 8239 or the Philippine Passport Act of 1996.
RA 10928 states regular passports "issued under this Act shall be valid for a period of 10 years" from the current five years under RA 8239 provides, "Regular passports issued under this Act shall be valid for a period of five (5) years."
It clarifies however, that individuals under 18 years old shall be issued passports valid for only five years.
