The Philippine Consulate General in New York concluded this year’s “Konsulado on the Go” by serving one of the most far flung areas under its jurisdiction – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It takes approximately seven hours to travel to Pittsburgh by land.
Members of the consular outreach team, led by Vice Consul Tanya Faye O. Ramiro (second from right, standing), poses with members and volunteers of FAAP.
Carried out with the support of the Filipino American Association of Pittsburgh (FAAP), the consular outreach was held at FAAP-owned Philippine Center on Saturday, 05 November 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. A total of 122 consular services were processed.
The consular outreach provided the following services – passport renewal, retention/reacquisition of Philippine citizenship, civil registry (birth, marriage, and death), notarization, and general consultation with the officer in charge.
