My Wife will be getting her Philippine Passport soon. I have a few questions.

I retired here to the Philippines. She is not traveling to the USA. I need her Passport for the IRS.

 

Does she need a CFO?

 

She is going to Butuan city to apply for the passport. Does she need an appointment?

 

Can she apply online for the passport?

 

If so where does she go online to apply?

 

Thanks for any replies.

Your gal has to apply for the Phil passport in person.

 

The CFO requirement is discretionary, depending on whether they think she is going to use it to emigrate.

See the list of required documents for a new passport application.
 
Because she is married to an alien, CFO is required.  DFA makes an automatic assumption that the applicant may choose to emigrate.
 
All the official passport application information says go to the DFA.gov.ph site to make an appointment.  That site only accepts appointments for the 5 offices in the NCR.  RCOs (Regional Consular Offices) accept passport applications on a walkin basis.
 
You download the passport application (PDF), fill it out completely.  Then take it the DFA RCO to apply.  They will take fingerprints and photos at that time.  Make sure you have all the requested documents when you go to the RCO.
 
The adventure continues

May you find what you want in life,
know it when you see it and
have the good luck to get it
... and keep it!!!
