Previous outsourced passport maker "took away" all its applicants' data

The consequence, DFA is requiring some of renewing their passports to bring birth certificates and they are rebuilding their files from scratch.

Passports pose national security issues and cannot be kept back by private entities. Data belongs to the state," Locsin in another post.

In the report by PhilstarDFA Assistant Secretary Elmer Cato said that those who are required to submit birth certificates are applicants renewing brown or green passports or maroon machine-readable passports.
