VFS Philippine Passport Renewal Center Dubai experience
VSF Philippine Passport Renewal center in Wafi Mall was indeed fast in their service. Tried and tested! I just got my renewed passport
In my previous blog, I mentioned that the Filipino community in the UAE would really appreciate the alternative way of renewing our passport instead of going to the consulate. Many of us don’t prefer to have a long way to wait for a schedule from the consulate for many reasons.
The presence of the VFS renewal center is a blessing for Pinoy and Pinay Expat here in UAE.
Though, processing here has an additional fee it is still fine to many. The accessibility, 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 hour 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, a cafe in case you need to grab a snack or drink.
-You can take the advantage to see how the Egyptian inspired mall looks like inside (in case you haven’t been in this mall yet)
I applied the renewal last March 3 and the ceiling that welcomes my eyes was this.
Then I collected it just yesterday (March 22) and this is the ceiling that amazes me.
All over the mall, you will notice their detailed pillar like this one.
If in case you are a fan of Lebanese Cuisine try to explore the Wafi Gourmet
VSF Philippine Passport Renewal Center is located in Level 2, Falcon Phase2
The Filipino team is approachable and friendly too, they will welcome you with their smile.
Note: There is no printed form that applicants need to bring. All the details will be filled up online in their system.
The staff will be assisting you!
I really like the service, the officer 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!
Raffles Hotel, or well known as the Pyramid inspired hotel in Dubai has direct access to Wafi Mall. From the mall, you can see the structure up close like this.
