Mikee Quintos learned a valuable lesson after her passport got lost in South Korea

Quintos went to the police station to file a report.

Mikee Quintos lost her passport in South Korea; and learned a valuable lesson from that experience.

On November 29, via a YouTube vlog, Quintos shared that she missed her flight back to the Philippines after losing her passport.



“Nawawala ang passport ko. Lumipad na yung plane, naiwan na ako. May taping ako bukas 5:30 a.m. Si Mommy kasi nag-pack ng bags ko dahil pagbalik ko sa room, check out na daw. So, nag-ayos lahat. I was so ready to fix my things. Pag-akyat ko ng room, nililinis na yung kuwarto at wala na lahat ng gamit ko, so hindi ko na na-check yung passport ko.”

Quintos went to the police station to file a report.

“Yes, I’m still in Korea. Dapat nasa Philippines na ako now, but kakatapos lang namin sa police station. Because one of the requirements for getting a new passport in the Philippine embassy is a police report.

“We’re really hoping na makauwi kami soon,” she continued.

Quintos shared what to do in case a passport gets lost in abroad.

“If nawala niyo passport niyo, diretso kayo sa police muna. Nagpunta muna kami ng police kasi kailangan ng police report, na kailangan naka-translate in English. Ngayon, sa tabi ng Philippine Embassy, may nagta-translate so ipi-print na rin nila iyon for you.

 

“Doon din kami nagpa-photocopy ng IDs ko, dun din kami nagpa-print ng soft copy ng passport ko na nawala. Tapos kailangan ng four copies ng 2×2 na photo, details ng Korean visa.

“Naayos namin ang pag-book ng ticket dahil kailangan din yung ticket pabalik sa Pilipinas para ma-approve ang kailangang documents [sa Philippine embassy].”

Quintos said she considers the experience as a blessing in disguise.

“I hope nakita nyo na napakamaling mawala ng passport, so don’t make the same mistake.

“Kapag hindi niyo naiintindihan at nai-stress kayo sa kung anong nangyayari sa buhay niyo, itiwala niyo na si God may plan and Siya pa rin ang boss,” she said.



Quintos is known for her role as Lira in GMA’s drama fantasy Encantadia (2016).
