Hopefully, this Affidavit of Support and Consent sample can help parents get passports for their children. We looked for sample affidavits online, and couldn’t find any. We ended up making our own affidavit and having it notarized in Naga (for PHP50) before heading over to Legazpi. Looks like we had some missing information in ours – so we still had to make use of the services of the Affidavit Desk at the DFA (for PHP300). Here is the text of the correct affidavit that was put together by the DFA’s Affidavit Desk. It could help some of you save a couple of hundred pesos (and time too!)
