  *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 database 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.
