ADVISORY : AVAILABILITY OF NEW PASSPORTS AT THE EMBASSY

ENGLISH

The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait informs the Filipino community that due to disruptions in the delivery of passports by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) following the Enhanced Community Quarantine in Luzon, there may be delays in the availability of some new passports at the Embassy that are scheduled to be released from March 2020 onwards.

Not all new passports with releasing dates from March 2020 onwards are affected by the delayed deliveries from the Philippines. So before coming to the Embassy, the public is advised to send an SMS (text) message to the following hotlines of the Embassy’s Consular Section, preferably between 9:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. from Sundays to Thursdays: +965 6518 4433 and +965 6990 2188

Nevertheless, the public is reminded that the Embassy releases new passports only for emergency cases, particularly those whose passports or residence visas have already expired. Passport claiming for non-emergency cases will return once the official holidays in Kuwait are over.

Ipinapaalam sa Filipino community ng Embahada ng Pilipinas sa Kuwait na dahil sa pagtigil sa pagpapadala ng mga pasaporte ng Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) kasunod ng Enhanced Community Quarantine sa Luzon, maaaring may pagkaantala sa availability ng ilang bagong pasaporte sa Embahada na nakaiskedyul na ilabas mula Marso 2020.

Hindi lahat ng mga bagong pasaporte na may releasing date mula Marso 2020 ay apektado ng naantalang pagpapadala mula sa Pilipinas. Kaya bago pumunta sa Embahada, inaabisuhan ang publiko na magpadala ng SMS (text) message sa mga sumusunod na hotline ng Consular Section ng Embahada, sa pagitan ng alas-9 ng umaga at alas-2 ng hapon mula Linggo hanggang Huwebes: +965 6518 4433 at +965 6990 2188

Gayunpaman, ipinapaalala sa publiko na naglalabas ng mga bagong pasaporte ang Embahada para lamang sa mga emergency case, partikular ang mga may hawak ng pasaporte o residence visa na nawalan na ng bisa. Ang pagkuha ng pasaporte para sa mga hindi emergency case ay magbabalik sakaling matapos na ang mga official holiday sa Kuwait.
