My wife to make sure she got a place did pre-arrange for a small token of gratitude, by getting the guard to allocate her a number....but when she arrived at 6am there was no guard and only 3 waiting so it was no problem.

To get thru DFA for passport in married name, which is really a nitemare, is to take a small child saying that both are waiting for passports....they will let you in ahead of those waiting....

This is the Philippines lol..

Hi Dunan
Your experience is more recent than mine, was that in Cebu or Manila and how long ago
Iduno
also keep in mind that come July there will be approvals as the capping of visa 300 will be removed then, so maybe it is better to try and get it now before the rush in July

As everyone knows its what one has to do, local or foreigner to get anything done here without being totally screwed around.....not nice but its just how it works in Phil...

We did both CFO n passport thing a few months prior to application...n even though we had a few additional doc requests the replies seem positive enough...at least our CO does reply promply n not the usual pre-generated response...PLUS she automatically changed our 309 to 100.without us asking..god bless her...

Yes we did the seminar in Cebu, took all day but no hassles or interrogation....

Dunan
Totally agree Cebu CFO no interrogation (there have been many stories about the CFO in Cebu and the strict nun grillings). This has not been my experience, yes they say that us Aussies will beat them blah blah blah, take them out to isolation in the bust etc and as one Filipino woman here once wrote and the Filipino men are always so caring (tounge in cheek)

How do they determine what number you are in the line?
They read minds? Hahaha.. Juz kidding iduno..
No harm in asking as to where the queue is just for the CFO Sticker..
Better yet, go there a bit later as you dont need to fall in line like the rest (i think) to have passport CFO Sticker..

Just a thought..
