Philippine Consulate not closed, but operating under restrictions

467

Since the island is still under PCOR1, Philippine Consulate General has to restrict on-site and in-person interactions to those who have a legitimate emergency situation or critical essential need with prior appointment.

In a letter sent to its consular clients and the various Filipino community organizations on island, the Philippine Consulate stated: “We are not CLOSED as we are in fact reporting to the office under prescribed protocols and processing consular services that have the complete requirements and qualify under current circumstances.”

The consulate stated that it is doing its part to help GovGuam reduce and control the spread of the virus on the island. As such, the consulate will refuse to let in anyone who has not completed the online emergency request form. The regular online appointment system (https://bookmeaganapcg.setmore.com/) has also been suspended while Guam remains under PCOR1.

If you or anyone you know has a need for consular assistance that cannot be deferred until Guam is downgraded to PCOR2, you can refer them to https://www.aganapcg.info/contact-us/ and https://www.aganapcg.info/contact-us/emergency-request-form/.

“We are confident that you understand the need for us to exercise an overabundance of caution as we need to ensure the health and safety not just of our consular clients, but of our personnel as well. We will also appreciate it if you can help disseminate this information to your family, friends, and our kababayans,” the consulate stated.
