PCG ADDS PASSPORT ONLINE APPOINTMENT SLOTS WITH THE EASING OF PUBLIC HEALTH RESTRICTIONS IN ALBERTA
The Philippine Consulate General (PCG) in Calgary wishes to inform the public that in view of the easing of public health restrictions in Alberta beginning 8 February 2021 under the provincial government’s Path Forward plan, the PCG opened additional passport online appointment slots last 1 February for the month of February.
Additional slots will also be opened for March. The slots for April and the succeeding months will be increased if the easing of public health restrictions will continue.
Currently, passport appointment slots open two months in advance and on a staggered basis. The PCG’s passport online appointment system, which is found at http://www.passport.gov.ph, is managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila and is the same appointment system used by the DFA for passport applicants in the Philippines. The PCG’s passport applicants, however, should select North America – Canada – PCG Calgary as the site for their applications and must encode their personal details.
Applicants are requested to read the PCG’s Passport Booking Guidelines - https://www.philcongencalgary.org/copy-of-important-reminders-passpor
The opening of the passport appointment slots is not pre-announced, but the PCG will issue notification via its Facebook page the minute new slots are opened. The PCG encourages the public to follow its Facebook page to get notification about the opening of slots.
While the PCG is adding more slots, it is also observing client capacity limit inside its office in compliance with the public health measures of Alberta Health Services. The number of slots, therefore, is still limited and cannot go back yet to the pre-pandemic level.

The PCG thanks the public for its understanding and cooperation.
