Every applicant for registration is required to personally appear and submit a valid Philippine passport.  A dual citizen has to present the original or certified true copy of the Order of Approval or the Oath of Allegiance.

The Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco would like to remind our Kababayans that failure to vote twice in the Philippine national elections is a ground for removal of the name of the absentee voter in the National Registry of Overseas Absentee Voters.

The Overseas Absentee Voter who has failed to vote twice should register again.
