This is the second PaRC facility for Philippine passport renewal in the UAE.

A new centre for Philippine passport renewals has been set up in Abu Dhabi, and it will be open even on weekends. 

The Philippine Ambassador to the UAE, Hjayceelyn M. Quintana, inaugurated the passport renewal centre (PaRC) at VFS Global, World Trade Centre, in Abu Dhabi city on Friday, coinciding with the commemoration of Philippine Independence Day.
This is the second PaRC facility for Philippine passport renewal in the UAE.
The first PaRC facility was opened at Wafi Mall in Dubai last year.

“A befitting gift to Filipinos in the UAE on the occasion of Philippine Independence Day is the opening of the PaRC facility in Abu Dhabi. It is also very timely, given the need to reduce travel and observe strict physical distancing and other health protocols during the pandemic,” said Quintana.

Serving as an alternative site for passport renewals aside from the Philippine Embassy in the Capital, the VFS Global PaRC facility is open daily from 10am to 6pm, even on weekends, Friday and Saturday.

The new centre will start accepting applications from June 14. It is located at Level B2, The Mall, World Trade Centre, Khalifa Bin Zayed the 1st Street (Airport Road), Abu Dhabi.

In line with the precautionary measures taken to curb the spread of Covid-19, appointment scheduling at the VFS Global PaRC facility has been made mandatory temporarily.

Prior to personally submitting passport renewal application, applicants need to secure an appointment from VFS Global by visiting www.vfsglobal.com/philippines/uae/passport-services/index.html
