How To Apply For A Passport Extension In Riyadh

There was a time when I begin thinking that I am an employee of the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh. Seriously! Have you seen our entry on How To Renew Your Passports in Riyadh? It has over 100 comments that another page had to be made to accommodate more! Whew! The questions were getting more concrete and my replies are getting more obsolete. Who would have thought consular stuff are that complicated? I salute them who have extreme patience to go through each case/problem in the Consular Services section of our embassy.
Anyway, just to set the record straight, I am not an employee of the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh. Neither are the rest of The Pink Tarha ladies. I mean I want to just to help our kababayans in Saudi Arabia. Ergo, The Pink Tarha blog. So I am not an expert and feel free to not believe me. I’m quite sure the embassy employees can answer all the questions you have. Sometimes, it’s even in their website. And, you can always call them in their hotline: +966-11-4823559. Oh right, they’re too busy to answer sometimes? Well, that’s what “try and try until you reach your breaking point them” is all about. No, don’t think they’re ignoring you. No really, they are here to serve and help the Filipino people right? Right? 😉
IMPORTANT!
In the meantime, I will unravel the mystery of extending your passports. I’ve received a handful of questions on this and even if I don’t need an extension, I just have to research what this is all about. Just in case.
So, you probably should know that you NEED to renew your passport nine months before its expiry date (quick, check your passports now!) because getting an online appointment is quite tedious. The earliest possible date of renewal might be two months from now. So be as early as possible in having your passport renewed. You cannot travel out of a country into another one if your passport is no longer valid for six months. For example, my passport will expire on October 2014 so I can no longer travel from the Philippines to KSA (or vice-versa) on May 2014. I will have to renew it as early as January 2014 to avoid hassles and stress.
What if you have some emergencies and your passport is no longer valid for less than six months… or worse, your passport is already expired… what will you do? That’s where an extension is granted.
Passports extensions can only be granted in the following instances: 
1. Death in the family requiring the OFW and members of his/her dependent family to urgently travel to the Philippines. 
2. Medical emergencies requiring the OFW and members of his/her dependent family to urgently travel to the Philippines or another country for medical treatment. 
3. OFWs returning abroad with valid employment contracts processed by the POEA. 
4. OFWs going home on final exit visas. 
If you notice, all of the above are kind of in the category of “life and death situations”. Why of course! Because giving an extension should not be as easy as 1-2-3. Remember that a passport is the most important ID you’ll ever have (well, except for the iqama here in Saudi Arabia) and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. So if you’re going to another country just because you’re visiting as a tourist and you handily forgot that your passport is already expired? Well, forget about your travel plans too! They won’t grant an extension for you. (Hello? If you have a plan to go out of the country for leisure and pleasure, check your passport first!)
You need to present proof of urgency when you apply for an extension. For example, for reason 1, a death certificate must be presented. For reason 2, a medical certificate. Valid employment contracts processed by the POEA or POLO, along with plane tickets with confirmed flights should be presented for reason 3.
Reason 4 is what most of our kababayans are asking. Yes, you can go home to the Philippines on a final exit visa even if your passport is already expired as long as you get this extension.
Now, there are conditions that will apply when an extension is granted. 
1. The extension shall only be done once and shall not be beyond 31 October 2015. 
2. The applicant shall apply for an ePassport at the same time the application for the extension is filed with the Embassy or Consulate. 
3. Payment of the consular fees for the extension of the passport and the application for the ePassport (SR 240). 
4. The extended passport shall be submitted for cancellation on the date of the release of the ePassport. 
*Those who are going on a final exit visa are no longer required to apply for ePassports. 
Those who will be applying for extensions of passport must make an appointment in the Philippine Embassy – Riyadh website (http://philembassyriyadh.checkappointments.com/). But if you are on a final exit visa, you do not need an appointment. You can go as a walk-in. I’m not sure for the other reasons but if you see that the earliest appointment available in the system will be two months away, then that defeats the purpose of your emergency need right? So I suggest you call the Embassy and inquire ASAP.
If you’re not residing in Riyadh, what should you do? Well, check the schedule of consular outreach/embassy on wheels in your area. Now na!
Applying for an extension of your passport can also be considered as renewing your passport already (because uhmn, you wouldn’t need the extension if your passport is still valid right?) so prepare the following requirements too:
1. Bring yourself because a personal appearance is required.
2. Original passport for renewal
3. Photocopy of passport (data page only: where your photo and details are)
The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh is open from Sunday to Thursday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM. 
 
For general embassy matters, you can call +966-11-4823559, +966-11-4820507, and +966-11-4821577. For Consular Services (meaning passports, visas, etc.), call +966-11-482-3816. (This is the number you will call when the entry above didn’t answer your question. 😉

  1. Greetings! Thank you for the article, it's very helpful! I'm in the Philippines, but my mother is working in KSA. Unfortunately, her passport has already expired and her contract is going to expire in October 2014. Will she be qualified to apply for passport extension on the grounds of reason no. 4 (OFWs going home or final exit visa)? I kept trying on setting an appointment via online so

  2. Hi Amore, there's still a lot of time for her to have her passport renewed because she won't go home til October 2014. Try to set up an appointment in the EOW for her as soon as possible. Slots might be full for the coming months but try for next year.

        If you’re going to Riyadh, might as well renew it than extend it. You can also search on the schedule of Embassy On Wheels; they do that in Dammam and Al-Khobar. Kindly visit the embassy’s website.

  13. @Anonymous 2:13AM: Kindly call the Philippine Embassy regarding this because your passport will already expire and technically, it&#39;s no longer valid for traveling. Passports should be still valid for 6 months when traveling. You might need to get a visa extension. And have your passport renewed in the Philippines. The Philippine Embassy Riyadh numbers are above for further clarification.

  24. Hi Anonymous 12:04AM: When you go on your appointment on APril 23, make sure that they know of you vacation dates. You can also inquire there and get their assurance that your passport will be released on time, before your June 6 flight and before you get an exit/re-entry visa (because your passport number must be updated in the system). They need 30 working days to renew passports.

      Hi Dante, you can apply for an extension of your passport but there are reasons/conditions to be met before they can extend your passport (emergency leave, medical purposes, etc.). If they can’t grant you an extension, then the best thing to do is change your booking and move your vacation. Kindly contact the Philippine Embassy for more info. Thanks!

      What I know is that you need to have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months. What I suggest is for you to renew your passport in the Philippines while you are on vacation. You can just present your new passport in the immigration office when you get back here in Saudi Arabia.

      Ask for an extension of your passport because you cannot travel if your passport is not valid for six months. When you apply for the extension, just tell them that you’re going on exit already.

      You have enough time to renew your passport before October or January. Have them get you an appointment for renewal now so that you can get your new passport within 30-45 working days. You’re the only one who can renew your passport for you since you need to appear at the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh or their Embassy on Wheels consular outreach services near your area.

      You can check the next schedule of the mobile passport po because they conduct it in regular intervals. Expired na po kasi yung passport n’yo by that time and hindi na po kayo pwedeng mag-travel using it.

  70. If going back to country of origin does the 6 month rule applies?if my passport will expire this July 2015 and I were to travel back to Philippines they would not allow it?

      You still need an extension of passport. Just tell the embassy consular office (passport) that you’re going on exit already.

    HI GOOD DAY!

    Im patrick here in al khobar KSA and i have a question regarding passport extension, i just want to ask if i can avail passport extension, my passport has expired last June 2015 and my employer did not renew it, then now, my contract is already finished, can i avail the extension with reason #4,. i requested final exit to my employer then he told me OK.. so can i avail extension for my two months expired passport? then can i ask also what is the difference between final exit visa in final exit letter.
    Thank you and hoping for your immediate response.
    God Bless and More Power…

      Hi Patrick, yes you can avail of the extension for passports in the embassy especially if you’re going on exit already. I’m not sure what’s the difference between the final exit visa and letter but I guess the final exit visa is the more legal and valid one.
