Hi, i need to renew my passport in January 2018 can you still use "the embassy" or would it be better to apply online or is there another way?

Sorry, I forgot to mention that it takes about three weeks. I renewed mine in March.
Also depending on your visa status if you wish to transfer your visa from the old to the new passport you must go to BI Intramuros. I know its a pain even for those of us in Central Luzon.

Apply online, print out payment receipt. Send passport and receipt via COURIER , new passport back in couple of weeks. you can do it now and get up to 6 months added to the new passport.
