In an advisory, the DFA said it has partnered with PayMaya Philippines Inc. to “allow more payment options for the transacting public.”

“Passport applicants who secure an online appointment may now choose to pay online through their debit card or credit card,” the DFA said.

Previously, the DFA only allowed over-the-counter payments for passport applications.

“This new system of paying through credit and debit cards offers faster and real-time payment without having to leave the safety of their own homes,” the DFA said.

The DFA had earlier made all consulate transactions online, including passport applications.
