The new system, which was launched on August 6, replaced the old periodic lists posted on the website where Filipinos had to search in every list to find out if their passports have already reached Riyadh. Meanwhile, the embassy has reiterated its earlier advisory that passports which remain unclaimed for six months or more from the date of issuance will be cancelled in compliance with Department Order No. 37-03. Filipinos who have not claimed their passports issued in the past six months or more may call 01-482-3818 or send an email to consular@philembassy-riyadh.org. Those who need to renew their passports are advised to obtain an appointment from the online system on the website. The online system requires a valid email address to send the confirmation of the appointment. Filipinos may choose the date and time of their appointment, as available on the website. Applicants should bring the printout of the confirmation, their original passport, a copy of the passport information page, an accomplished application form, and the passport fee of SR240 for renewal. Appointments through SMS are no longer available since they have been suspended on June 1, 2012. Filipinos were also advised that the embassy will no longer extend the machine-ready readable passport (green in color). As the process of obtaining an e-passport may take up to 30 days, Filipinos who need a passport are advised to apply in advance to avoid inconveniences. ]]>
