In a move designed to accommodate the enormous demand for passport renewals in the Eastern Region, the Philippine Embassy has revised its 2013 schedule for outreach consular services, known as the “Embassy on Wheels” in Alkhobar.
The embassy has added four additional dates to Embassy on Wheels (EOW) in Alkhobar. They are Feb. 14-15, March 7-8, March 21-22 and April 18-19. This is in addition to the previously scheduled consular outreach missions.
Applicants with appointments for the months of February through July 2013 will be re-scheduled for earlier dates.
The additional have necessitated a shuffle of existing appointments.
According to a press release from the Philippine Embassy, those who originally made appointments for Feb. 21 and 22 will be attended on Feb. 14 and 15. Those with appointments on March 28 and 29 will be attended on Feb. 21 and 22.
Those with appointments on April 25 and 26 will be attended on March 7 and 8. Those with appointments on the April 23 and 24 will be attended on March 21 and 22. Those with appointments on June 27 and 28 will be attended on March 28 and 29. Those with appointments on July 11 and 12 will be attended on April 18 and 19.
Applicants affected by the revised schedule will be informed via e-mail and mobile phone. Appointment slots for the consular outreach on April 25 and 26, May 23 and 24, June 27 and 28, and July 11 and 12 are considered open, and the online appointment system will soon be amended to allow for online appointments on these dates.
