Another modified office schedule from Philippine Embassy in Singapore from from 31 March to 24 April 2011 only:
The Philippine Embassy in Singapore announced that due to further improvements to be made to its public waiting area, its Monday-Friday work schedule will be extended from 31 March to 24 April 2011. The extension is also being implemented in light of the slowdown of scheduled repairs, caused by the onset of heavy rain in the preceding weeks.
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.
As the improvements are being made to the Embassy’s public area, the modified office schedule is being implemented to minimize the risk and inconvenience to the transacting public.
Likewise, applicants are discouraged from bringing companions, especially young children and the elderly, to the Embassy. In order to avoid overcrowding and congestion, particularly within the area under repair, the Embassy may limit the entry on non-applicants.
The public’s cooperation and kind understanding will be appreciated.
The Embassy will be closed on the following dates:
