The Office of Consular Affairs in Aseana in Paranaque City and all Consular Offices (COs) nationwide will be closed on Nov. 1, in observance of All Saints Day, the foreign affairs department said late Thursday.
Consular services, including passport and authentication, will resume the next day, but “schedules may be subject to sudden changes due to unforeseen circumstances or implemented policies of local government units and establishments hosting the specific foreign affairs consular office,” the Department of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
The department reiterated that the number of people allowed inside COs is limited, in accordance with the prescribed physical distancing measures imposed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The temperature of applicants will be taken before entering the CO and they will be required to wear a face mask and face shield. — ANOT
