Philippine Embassy Representatives Help Local Filipinos

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Representatives from the Philippine Embassy of Washington D.C. are in Panama City to provide services to Filipinos in the area.

Friday and Saturday, the embassy team is helping around 200 Filipinos process passports, dual citizenships and more.

Normally, Filipino residents would have to travel all the way to Washington D.C. to be able to complete these services.

The Sampaguita Association helped bring the embassy team back to Panama City for the second time. 

Philippine Embassy Consult, Katrina Borjamartin, said Filipinos are traveling all the way from south Florida to Alabama just for an appointment.

She said it is rewarding to be able to save them the trip to D.C.

"These are our constituents, and we want to be able to make life easier for them, especially because they are so far from home," Borjamartin said.

The Philippine Embassy team will be back in Florida in August to help Filipinos in Miami, Jacksonville and Tampa.
