Applicants scheduled for a passport appointment on June 20 will be accommodated from June 13 to 17, the Department of Foreign Affairs-Office of Consular Affairs said Saturday.
The DFA said this is in compliance with Proclamation 154 declaring June 20 as a special non-working holiday.
It was referring to President Benigno Aquino III’s declaration that June 20 is a non-working day to mark the 150th birth anniversary of national hero Dr. Jose Rizal.
Rizal’s birth anniversary this year, June 19, falls on a Sunday.
