While I was renewing my passport, my friends also applied for a Report of Birth and passport for their 2-week old daughter. Here’s the process:
REPORT OF BIRTH
For Filipinos who gave birth in Suriname, there are two ways to apply for a Report of Birth: Send the requirements to the Philippine Embassy in Brasilia or wait for the embassy to conduct an outreach program in Suriname and apply for it personally.
REQUIREMENTS FOR REPORT OF BIRTH:
- 4 copies of the Report of Birth form, typed or written legibly in capital or bold letters and signed by one or both Filipino parents.
- Original or certified copy and 3 copies of child’s birth certificate with English translation from a certified translator. NOTE: The birth certificate should have an apostille (authentication) from the local court.
- Original and 3 copies each of the parent’s passport.
- Original and 3 copies of parents’ marriage certificate (if married).
- 25 USD service fee
That would be 1 original and 3 copies of the above requirements.
If you prefer to send it to the embassy, the Report of birth form should be signed by two witnesses. You must coordinate with the embassy first before you send the documents.

PASSPORT APPLICATION FOR NEWBORN/CHILDREN
Passport application should be done in person, so it’s either you go to the Philippine Embassy in Brasilia or wait for the embassy to come to Suriname.
- Duly accomplished passport form for minors, filled up and signed by either parent. For minors below 18 years old who are unaccompanied by both parents, a notarized Affidavit of Consent to Travel must be presented and signed by either parent.
- Report of Birth, one original and one photocopy.
- 60 USD application fee
After submitting all the requirements, parents are asked to double check their child’s passport details being encoded in the computer. If everything is correct, the embassy will proceed with the picture taking and then it’s done! 😀
The processing of passports will take up to 8 to 10 weeks. You can always check the Tropang Suriname page for updates regarding the passport’s shipping, arrival and where to claim it.
- There’s no appointment needed
- Infants applying for passports are prioritized
If you have other inquiries, you can always contact the Philippine Embassy in Brasilia thru their FB page.
