Philippine Embassy in Singapore announced that it will be reverting to a Monday-Friday work schedule from 11 February to 31 March 2011 in order to undertake improvements to its public waiting area.
The Embassy will be closed to public transactions on Saturdays and Sundays during the said period. No consular or labor services will be available over the weekend.
The transacting public is advised, however, that the Embassy will be open for passport, notarial, civil registry, and labor services from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Visa applications will continue to be accepted from Monday to Thursday only.
