Travel Document (TD)

This service is NOT for the issuance of passport nor for notarization of Parental Travel Permits

A Filipino national may apply for a Travel Document (TD) at the Consulate in lieu of an expired or lost Philippine passport if said national has an urgent travel to the Philippines. The following may be considered as urgent travel:

  1. If the applicant is returning to the Philippines due to the death or serious illness of an immediate member of the family (spouse, children, parents and siblings ONLY); and
  2. If the applicant for TD is for deportation or repatriation.

In view of the above, an applicant for TD is required to submit a valid proof of urgent travel.


  • A travel document may only be used for emergency or urgent travels and cannot be conveniently used to avoid going through the passport application/renewal process.
  • A travel document must be used for one-way, direct travel to the Philippines (no connecting flights, no layovers) within 30 days from the date of issuance.
  • A TD is valid for one (1) month only from the date of issuance.


​Applicants may send their request for issuance of a TD by emailing Walk-in applicants may also be accommodated during business days between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m.

The following are the requirements for TD:

  • Duly filled-out application form: Travel Document Application Form
