Kababayan who visited the Philippine Center on Monday, 18 April 2022 and today, 19 April 2022, are advised to check themselves for symptoms and/or to get themselves tested.
Normal consular operations will resume on Monday, 25 April 2022.
Kababayan with appointments scheduled tomorrow, Wednesday 20 April 2022 until Friday, 22 April 2022, will be contacted by email to inform them of their new appointment dates.
