The trip push through but I did not join anymore. Did not attempt since I may not be given boarding pass.

So its an expense that I wasn't able to use.

Taiwan is very strict if you will avail of the visa-free program for Filipinos. Your passport should have MINIMUM validity of 6 months. Change your departure date and pay for penalties if you want to go to Taiwan. Renewing your passport would also solve your dilemma.

Alright this is noted. Planning to just move our departure date from Manila instead as another option.

Our scheduled flight departs from Manila on the 8th of February. My Passport expires on the 7th of August.

Is it safe to rebook on the 7th of February? Thats exactly 6months from my passport's expiration

Thank you!

What airline? If you will take Cebu Pacific their daily flight to TPE departs late in the evening and arrive the next day so you need to depart on Feb. 6th as you will arrive TPE on Feb. 7th.

Just in case you are free on Thursday (Jan. 18) and you want to renew your passport you can go to the Manila City Hall as the "Passport on Wheels" will be there and you can have a new passport before your trip.

All passport applicants for the Passport on Wheels are walk-in as reservation/appointment is not allowed. Be early as it is on a first come, first serve basis. I think they can only process 2,000 passport applicants.
