I’ve been following the story about a proposal of opening a Philippine Consulate General in Calgary since 2014.
And I’m not the only one celebrating the good news although it was all talk back then.

What about the Philippine Passport Renewal?
This is the question we all Filipinos are asking.
As of now the renewal of Philippine passport is not offered in the consulate general in Calgary.
I’ll update this post as soon as I can. (Or you can let me know. I appreciate any tips.)
Good news! Starting July 4, 2016, the Philippine Consulate General in Calgary is accepting passport application.
Although that’s one excuse scratch off my reasons to go to Vancouver, still I’m happy for the Filipino community. No more sleeping while sitting in the airport to catch the flight or in the bus for more than 10 hours. It is definitely worth the wait.
Where Else Can You Renew the Philippine Passport?
I got this one for you. I’ve written other blog posts about passport renewal and consular outreach program:
- How to Renew Philippine Passport in Canada
- How to Renew a Passport in the Philippines
- Find All the Philippine Embassy and Consulate in Canada
- Philippine Consular Outreach Schedule in Canada
- How to Renew Philippine Passport in Vancouver
- Are You Traveling with Expired Philippine Passport
With all the information, I hope you can find the best way to renew your passport. Remember to consider the time, expenses, and the scenery as well.
Don’t forget to enjoy your trip wherever you are planning to renew the passport or whatever the errand is.
For the residents of Calgary at least you can save a lot if you need to get an NBI Clearance and avail the other services.
So that should cheer you up! More good news is coming.
