STARTING January 2016, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) will be issuing the new e-passports and they will look like these:

A. On the first pages of the passports (at the back of the cover), an image of the Philippine Eagle and its wings will be featured prominently.

Aside from these new designs, the 2016 passport will also have innovative security features such as:

  • the use of a latent image which would be visible only when the document is viewed at a certain angle
  • ultraviolet ink only visible under UV light 
  • watermark
  • the use of a different security background design for every visa page to prevent VISA page tampering, and
  • laser perforation for the unique document number perforate on the passport’s inside pages.


Other features:


  • A demonstration was conducted and the mock enrollment process only took less than five minutes to complete.
  • Aims to cut down the number of days for processing and delivery of passports from 15 working days to 10 for regular processing and from 7 working days to 5 for express processing.
