According to R.A. No. 7610, a person who is below 18 years old are still minor and wasn’t able to fully take care of themselves or protect themselves from any possible abuse or neglect. Especially for children aged 0-7 years old because they are still vulnerable. That is why DFA creates separate guidelines on how to get a passport for minors.
