DFA opens office in Ilocos Norte


San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte—After seven years of annual mobile e-passporting services with the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN), partnering with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), a consular office finally opened on May 6, 2018 in a mall in this town.

Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter S. Cayetano reassured that “DFA is committed to make its passport and other consular services more accessible to our people.

“The opening of these two consular offices [Ilocos Norte and Isabela] is a firm example of that commitment,” he added.

With an estimated 60% of families in Ilocos Norte receiving remittances from relatives working abroad, quick and accessible passporting has been a constant need. (PGIN-CMO)
