Philippine Embassy in Riyadh announces tentative schedule for the year 2011

The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh has announced its schedule for outreach consular services missions, commonly known as the “Embassy on Wheels” (EOW), for the year 2011.

While the schedule is tentative, the Embassy will exert its best to stick to the schedule, provided that venues are confirmed and approval of the host government are obtained for each consular mission.

The following is the tentative schedule of the outreach activities:
27 – 28 January 2011 – Al Khobar
10 – 11 February 2011 – Al Jouf
24 – 25 February 2011 – Al Khobar
24 – 25 March 2011 – Al Khobar
14 – 15 April 2011 – Hail
28 – 29 April 2011 – Al Khobar
19 – 20 May 2011 – Al Khobar
9 – 10 June 2011 – Sana’a, Yemen
23 – 24 June 2011 – Al Khobar
7 – 8 July 2011 – Buraydah
21 – 22 July 2011 – Al Khobar
11 – 12 August 2011 – Al Khobar
15 – 16 September 2011 – Jubail
29 – 30 September 2011 – Al Khobar
20 – 21 October 2011 – Al Khobar
3 – 4 November 2011 – Sana’a, Yemen
17 – 18 November 2011 – Al Khobar
8 – 9 December 2011 – Al Khobar
Starting January 2011, the EOW will adopt the appointment system for its passport services. This is to avoid the inconvenience associated with the long queues during the past EOWs. The new appointment system is free of charge and the applicants shall enlist themselves directly through email or text.

For email, passport applicants should e-mail eowappointment@philembassy-riyadh.org and indicate the applicant/s full name, contact number, and their city in Saudi Arabia. They can also reserve a slot thru text message by sending the following format: EOW(space)full name(space)city in Saudi Arabia to 0540269731 (example: EOW Juan Santos Dammam).

Family applicants must indicate all the names of its members, otherwise only one slot would be provided to them. One week before the scheduled EOW, the list of those who would be served during the EOW passport services will be posted on the Embassy website (www.philembassy-riyadh.org).

Those who could not be accommodated for the particular EOW outreach mission will be automatically listed for the next EOW outreach mission. The next EOW is tentatively scheduled on 27-28 January 2011 at the International Philippine School in Al Khobar (IPSA) in Al Khobar, Eastern Region.
