Hindi pwede yung mag apply ka ng lost passport if hindi naman talaga but being hold lang ng agency. The agency can file a case for collection against you if hindi mo yon bayaran. Try to negotiate nalang sa kanila na hindi ninyo kayang bayaran ang halaga baka they can reduce it. Magpatulong nalang po para hindi na gagastos sa PAO lawyer para magpadala ng demand letter na ibigay ang passport with settlement amount. In that way baka naman the agency will reduce the amount that you have to pay.
