Aside from the 600 who pre-submitted their requirements last March 18, the DFA also accepted some chance or walk-in applicants who applied for new passports and or sought renewal of their already expiring passports.
In answer to the clamor of the people here for a Mobile Passport Service, Mayor Belen T. Fernandez coordinated with the DFA to conduct the activity so people of Dagupan will no longer go to La Union, Baguio, Pampanga or Manila just to apply for their passports or renew the same.
