Bonjour. Mabuhay.

News update for passport applicants.
=======================
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.

The DFA said those with questions can contact (632) 556-0000, (632) 737-1000 or e-mail epassport@dfa.gov.ph or passport.oca@yahoo.com. – JE, GMA News
