The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said two consular offices will resume services after finishing its disinfection procedures.

In a Laging Handa briefing, DFA Undersecretary Brigido Dulay said its offices in Aseana and Alabang will return to operations after these were initially closed due to reports of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

“We are open as soon as we disinfect and we have contact-traced personnel, and the close contacts have quarantined. So, we are back on operation in our consular offices,” Dulay said.

Dulay said the Alabang consular office started work yesterday, while the Aseana office in Parañaque will reopen today.

In a statement, DFA said applicants who were affected by the initial closure of offices will be accommodated starting Wednesday, 8 July until Thursday, 30 July.

Meanwhile, the DFA also noted that confirmation emails for online passport appointments will, in the meantime, be delayed due to an ongoing system upgrade.

Applicants who have paid for their passport appointments are advised to wait within 24 hours before receiving their application packet.

Those who have not yet received it in time for their passport appointment are urged to bring the receipt of their payment for verification to the office where the appointment was settled.
