Not everyone does this first step. They will skip it and book an appointment right away thinking they already have the requirements that need to be passed. But when the day of their appointment comes their application got rejected because their documents are incomplete. And it's annoying if they won't please your small favor even if you talk with them nicely. Well, you can't blame them because it is their rule and they need to implement it fairly. So if you want to process your passport application smoothly make sure to know the "exact requirements" that need to submit once you went to your appointment date.
Since the pandemic happened walk-ins are no longer allowed. You won't be entertained at their office if you don't have an appointment. So better do the first step which is to search and ask others who already have experience of getting a passport to give you an idea. Of course, don't just rely on one advice and opinions because there may be a change in the process, for example the person you asked got his passport 6 years ago, and it was before the pandemic. Take their advice but also gather the latest information.
Prepare all your documents 1 week before not the next day of your appointment for you to less stress. Yes it's just a piece of cake and you can do it in just an hour but don't be complacent because when you forgot only one requirement, your application will be rejected. Your money and efforts will be wasted because it is not refundable.
Expect that there will be long lines when you go to their office. You are not the president of your state so you have to bring long patience because there is no special treatment once you get there.
The process will not take 15 minutes as long your documents are fine and passed to their screening. After that, they will take you a picture. And that's it you're good to go! You will just wait for it to be made for weeks and it will arrive at your doorstep.
It's already 5 days since I processed mine and I'm excited to receive my first-ever passport hehe! I will update you once I have it.
I hope this article helps especially those who want to get a passport.
