VFS Philippine Passport Renewal Center Dubai experience
Tried and Tested! Just got my renewed passport from VFS Philippines Renewal Center Dubai it was indeed VeryFast.
In my previous blog I mentioned that Filipino community in UAE would really appreciate the alternative way of renewing our passport instead of going to the consulate. Many of us doesn’t prefer to have a long way to wait schedule from the consulate with many reasons.
The presence of VFS renewal center is really a blessing for Pinoy and Pinay expat here in UAE.
Though, processing here has an additional fee it is still fine to many. The accessiblity, convenience it will give is really practical in my opinion.
-The location is in Wafi Mall which is near to Health Care City Metro Station.
-Since it is located in the mall, the operating hours is flexible till 8 pm (no need to absent or take a one day leave to process it)
-The area is presentable, comfortable and clean.
-There is a food court, cafe in case you need to grab snack or drinks.
-You can take the advantage to see how the Egyptian inspired mall looks like inside (incase you haven’t been in this mall yet)
I applied the renewal last March 3 and the ceiling that welcomes my eyes is this.
Then I collected it just yesterday (March 22) and this is the ceiling that amaze me.
All over the mall you will notice their detailed pillar as this one.

I really like the service, the officer actually informed me that release will be ready in 4-6 weeks. Surprisingly I got a notification that it is ready for collection in less than 3 weeks. 12 working days to be exact. Wow that is really quick.
Thanks to the team with the great service experience, Keep it up!
