I have already renewed my US Passport online and by mail and you mainly use Air21 but only Air21 located at the US Embassy you will call and schedule a pick up, don’t try to find local Air21 Lol.. .. Lessons learned, they will send you an Air21 truck for pick up and then later on delivery, so be sure to follow all instructions from the US Embassies Manila link on passport renewals.
