The fourth Philippine mobile consular mission in the CNMI this year will begin today at Chalan Kanoa.
For Saipan, it will be until Sept. 25 at the Mt. Carmel Social Hall, while on Tinian it will be on Sept. 26 to 27 at the Tinian Dynasty Hotel & Casino.
According to honorary consul to the Philippines Glicerio Arago, everything is prepared, including the arrival of the representative from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.
“Mr. Rey Tayag is coming,” Arago said.
Tayag, a former welfare officer to the now closed Philippine Consulate General Saipan, is the representative sent by Overseas Workers Welfare Administration administrator Rebecca Calzado.
As a result, Filipinos can avail and renew of their OWWA membership. OWWA is an agency of the Philippine government that protects and promotes the welfare of overseas Filipino workers and their dependents. Requirements for OWWA are the following: CW-1 copy, passport copy, and a $25 fee.
The CNMI last had a visit from an OWWA representative November 2014 where more than 1,600 memberships were renewed.
As always for consular missions, those who want to renew their Philippine passports, register for overseas voting for the May 2016 Philippine elections, and avail of civil registry and notarial services will be accommodated.
Schedules for those who will have their biometrics captured as part of the pre-processed passport applications may be viewed at the Philippine Consulate General-Agana, Guam Facebook page.
