Advisory on Embassy Operations during ACT Lockdown

17 September 2021, CANBERRA – The ACT government has extended the state-wide ACT lockdown until 15 October 2021, 11:59 PM.

In compliance with this directive, the Embassy of the Philippines in Canberra will implement the following changes for in-person consular services for ACT residents:

  1. The Philippine Embassy will be open for urgent in-person consular transactions (passport, notarial, NBI fingerprinting, and overseas voter registration) from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Mondays to Fridays. Bookings can be made through https://booking.philembassy.org.au.

  2. If you can defer your appointment until after the lockdown period, we encourage you to do so.
