Walk-in Passport Applicants

(Riyadh, 16 January 2017) – Further to Press Release No. 003-2017 dated 12 January 2017, the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia would like to reiterate that the Embassy may accommodate walk-in passport applicants who have an urgent need to apply for a passport because of an emergency situation and for other humanitarian considerations.

The Embassy may refuse walk-in applicants whose request to be accommodated without an appointment has no merit.

This is to avoid over-crowding inside the Embassy premises and to ensure that the consular services are delivered efficiently and within the prescribed hours.

Walk-in applicants will only be entertained after the passport applications of those who obtained an appointment have be processed.

Passport applicants should secure/book an appointment thru the Embassy’s official website at:
