11/06/2010: Embassy Conducts Consular Outreach In Wheeling, West Virginia

The Philippine Embassy in Washington D.C., in partnership with Fr. Michael Lecias of the Diocese of Wheeling, Charleston, WV conducted its first-ever consular outreach program in Wheeling, West Virginia on June 4, 2010, Friday, at the St. Alphonsus Parish Hall.

The outreach program in Wheeling was part of the Embassy's continuing effort to bring its services closer to Filipinos and Filipino-Americans in its consular jurisdiction.

The Embassy’s consular team accepted and processed applications for machine-readable passports, dual citizenship, notarization of documents, and registration of births and marriages. The outreach program also included an oath-taking ceremony for individuals who reacquired their Filipino citizenship under the Dual Citizenship Law.
