DFA: Mobile Passport Services for OFWs in Saudi Arabia on Aug 11-12
Aug 9, 2011
Overseas Filipino workers (0FWs) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can renew their Philippine passports as the Philippine Embassy in KSA will again conduct a mobile passport service this month.
The announcement was posted on the official website of the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh. This service called “Embassy on Wheels" is done by the Embassy with the help of AFCSCCOM, a Filipino community organization in the area.
The announcement said that the Embassy on Wheels will be held at the Al Jazeera International Philippine School in Dammam on August 11 and 12.
The Embassy said that applicants should bring their old passports and prepare a photocopy of the first page of their passports. They will not be required to submit photos.
They will also release the new passports of applicants processed on the last outreach mission. To claim, the applicants should bring a copy of the old passport and the original receipt.
If the passport will be claimed by a person other than the passport holder, an authorization letter signed by the principal is required.
Applicants who will not be accommodated as their passport is already expired or about to expire within six months can ask for a passport extension which will cost 80 Saudi riyals (P907).
This service is for those applicants included in the attached appointment list. Those who will not be accommodated will be automatically scheduled for the next mobile consular services in September 2011.
