Ongoing Delays in the Release of Passports


(Riyadh, 18 December 2016) – The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh would like to inform the Filipino community in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that there is an ongoing delay in the release of Philippine passports. 

These delays are due to certain technical issues on the part of the company in the Philippines responsible for the printing of the Philippine passports.

The Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila is exerting all efforts to ensure the resumption of normal services as soon as possible and requests the public’s kind understanding on the said delays.
