You may have noticed no open slots available for passport online appointment slots from July 2018 onwards. This is because the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) is currently enhancing its passport online appointment system with the implementation of ePayment.
In an advisory, the DFA stated that the ePayment will enable applicants to pay at a payment facility of their choice before going to the DFA making passport processing faster. Online appointment slots for the remaining months of the year will be opened once ePayment is launched. Read the advisory below.
