30/01/2010: Philippine Embassy Conducts Consular Outreach in Mobile, Alabama

The Embassy conducted a consular outreach program at the International Ministries Center in Mobile, Alabama on 30 January 2010 in cooperation with the Fil-Am Association of Greater Mobile.

The Embassy’s consular team consisting of Consul General Domingo Nolasco, Janeth Falsis and Emma Calobong processed 174 applications for machine readable passports and 10 petitions for dual citizenship, among the consular services rendered to Filipinos in the area.

Applicants for machine-readable passports mainly consisted of Filipino aeronautic engineers and technicians, members of their family, and other applicants from Atlanta, Georgia, South Carolina, Pensacola, Florida.

The outreach program is part of the Embassy’s vigorous campaign to encourage and enable Filipino green passport holders in its jurisdiction to personally apply for machine-readable passports before 1 April 2010.

The next outreach programs are scheduled on 6 March 2010 at Virginia Beach and 27-28 March 2010 at Tampa, Florida.
