Leaving Philippines with Expired Passport

Im a duel citizen (US and Philippine) and ill be traveling to the US in a few months. I've been trying to renew my Philippine passport but cant get an appointment. It expires about 2 week before i plan to travel.

My US passport is still valid

Can i still leave the country and renew my passport in the Philippine Embassy in the US at a latter date?

It depends on what passport you entered the country using.

If you came using your Philippine passport then you will have no entry stamp in your US passport so as far as the immigration officer on the desk is concerned you are an illegal alien.

I would go to a BOI office as I suspect they may be able to regularise the situation

I don't see that #1 - the OP can carry the expired passport - but be stamped out on the valid US one surely

The policy of the Bureau of Immigration for Filipinos with more than 1 passport is that you should present BOTH passports upon entry and exit of the Philippines. Did you do that?

Yes they can but in my opinion, if it is a departure on a US passport, the US passport has to have visa extensions up to date.

Still worth a trip to the nearest office of the bureau of immigration in my opinion.

I have no direct knowledge however I would not want to turn up at an airport with an entry stamp in an expired passport and then an exit stamp in another passport.

It is possible to contact the BOI by both e mail or by facebook for the correct answer as to what he should do.

Difficult question and no idea of the answer, better you contact Philippine immigration. If you are renewing your passport in USA allow 6 weeks as they are all sent back to Manila for renewal
