PANOORIN:Sen Cayetano nais alisin ang passport appointment at maerelease ang passport ng ilang araw lamang

The new Department of Foreign Affairs Chief, Allan Cayetano made a speech after the flag raising ceremony at DFA. 

He mentioned during his speech that President Rodrigo Duterte made a request to make the welfare, security and accommodation of OFWs a need. One of the issues that must be tended to in connection to this is the identification application framework.

Amid his speech, he specified that he talked with Asec. Straight to the point to work with his move group and work with individuals mindful with the passporting framework. He stated, he is anticipating from the day he gets again from Russia that the notice will be around his work area figuring out what should be possible to accelerate the procedure of travel permit application and expel arrangement framework.

"I expect, when I come back from Russia, a memo will be on my desk that will contain, "what", "how", and "when"... As in what can we do to speed up the process and remove the appointment system. Our goal is that, when we walk-in you will be able to apply for passport and in a few days get the passport." - DFA Chief Cayetano

He added, the goal is to be able to walk-in and apply for passport, then get the passport in few days, or later on apply for passport in the post office just like in the United States.

To accomplish this goal, according to him, we might be needing more machine, mobile passport program or employees. He said, if funds are not yet available and if additional employees will be needed, they could use his salary so that it could be implemented to started right away.

Last weekend, he visited the DFA in surprise. He witnessed during his visit the long queue of passport applicants, some taking more than five hours to process their passport. There is also a big problem with system where applicants have to take appointment to apply for passport. One applicant said, there is almost two months wait to get appointment for passport application.
