My appointment was in DFA Megamall at 11:00AM.  I allotted a lot of time just to make sure that I am on time. DFA Megamall is located on the 5th Floor, Building C. I was getting a hard time finding the  bridge that connects the main building to Building C. Follow this -> proceed to the 5th floor! If you’re on Bldg. A; take the right aisle of the building and walk few meters. If you’re on Bldg. B; take the left aisle of the building and walk few meters. If you’re confused, never hesitate asking questions to the people surround you!

Here are the steps to Follow in DFA:

1. Verification – at the entrance, there are receptionists who validate your printed form.
2. Processing – this is the area where your requirements will be submitted.
