Renewing Your Philippine Passport in Germany


The Philippine Embassy in Germany is located in Berlin. The exact location is Kurfürstendamm 194, 10707 Berlin, Germany. We’ve been there twice: when I applied for the renewal of my passport and when getting it. I could have let them sent it via mail, but I wanted to see Berlin again.

If you didn’t know, you can extend your passport either in Berlin, Brussels, Berne, or Vienna, depending on where you are located here in Germany.

If you live in southern Germany, you have the option to renew your Philippine passport at the Philippine Embassies in Berne, Switzerland or Vienna, Austria. If you are living in western Germany, you can renew your passport at the Philippine Embassy in Brussels, Belgium. Just a note that if you prefer to renew your passport in the aforementioned embassies, you need to make an appointment first.

I renewed mine in Berlin though I live in the western part of Germany as my husband and I also wanted to see Berlin as mentioned earlier. We roamed around the city right after submitting the application. It didn’t take long as there were only 2 to 3 other applicants when we were there.

Application for lost Philippine passport replacement in Germany


In case you are a Filipino and you lost your passport while traveling around Europe or your bag with the passport in it was stolen, you do not need to panic. Do not worry as you can apply for a replacement. Instead, just chill, breathe, relax.

Here are the requirements that you need to have before going to a Philippine embassy near you:

1. Personal appearance. This is a must because the embassy employee needs to capture your biometric data (photo, signature, fingerprint) to make sure you are who you say you are. The photo taken will be the photo that will appear in your passport. Therefore, as a piece of advice, fix yourself before going inside the embassy so that they can capture the best look in you. Please note that for minors below 18 years old, a legal guardian or a parent’s personal appearance is needed.

2. Duly accomplished passport application form.

3. Affidavit of Loss. You need to include in detail the reason why you lost the passport. You can state that you lost it somewhere, your shoulder or handbag was stolen or snatched, or it fell out of your pocket without your knowledge.
