The Philippine Consulate-General in Guam, in partnership with the Philippine Honorary Consulate Mission-CNMI, was able to serve over a thousand Filipino nationals who availed of various consular needs at its recent four-day mobile outreach at the Sun Palace Hotel in Susupe.
The mobile consular mission provided the following assistance: 594 passport renewals, 17 dual citizenship processing (adults) and two for minors, nine reports of birth, six notarial needs, two reports of marriage, and one travel documentation needs.
The consular outreach also did an overseas absentee voting registration for 587 Filipino nationals in the CNMI. The OAV registration is in preparation for the 2021 Philippine elections.
Philippine passport renewal is by appointment and the Philippine Consulate General is reminding everyone to submit application for renewal in advance to be able to secure a biometric appointment.
The four-day consular mobile service was headed by acting Philippine Consul-General to Guam Mark Francis Hamoy. He was joined by Ellen Morco, Annabelle Oviedo-Lavarez, Fritz Gerald Fernandez, Jermyn Julius Checa, and Ferdinand Villamor who handled the OAV registration.
Philippine honorary consul to the CNMI Glicerio Arago separately expressed his office’s gratitude to IT&E-CNMI general manager Rose Soledad, Bhiya Canadalla, United Filipino Organization president Mar Masilungan, the Sun Palace Hotel, and all volunteers headed by Annamae Adaza for their support and assistance.
