• Your editorial on defective passports


    You are 100% correct.

    My business partner had such an experience. He was detained in an Asian airport for hours.

    Fortunately the Philippine Embassy helped clear up the matter.

    The government should bear the cost of the new passport. But maybe it will again be a defective one!

      Boss naman baka nagtipid ang partner mo! There’s criteria and class level for the passport parang nasa Tutuban Station kayo bumili ng passport and I’m sure walang sablay. Halos lahat eh defective para me lagay tayo diyan. See Embassy to the rescue pero you don’t get out without a scratch. Aray, puwede bang walang aray iyan!
