DFA extends e-passporting in Ifugao

by Vency D. Bulayungan

LAGAWE, Ifugao, Jan. 9 (PIA)-- In an effort to expand its services to the public, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) extended the deadline of submission of requirements for e-passporting until last week of January.

Speaking in the PIA daily radio program, Claire Calingayan, Information Officer of the provincial government, informed those interested to submit their application with the necessary requirements and for those who already submitted their application but with lacking documents, to provide the needed documents to the governor’s office now until said date.

The provincial government has received 450 applications as of the earlier set deadline on December 29, 2011, but the DFA is requiring at least 600 to maximize resources of the government since the DFA has to deploy staff here to process the applications. Thus, the deadline is extended for another month.

The DFA screening is set on February 11, 2012 at the Provincial Government Building. The initial pre-screening of the 450 applicants was already done.

Calingayan said their office has scheduled a pre-screening in Kiangan town hoping that the 150 applicants needed to complete the 600 required by DFA will be met.

The provincial government here had been conducting the said activity in close coordination with the DFA in order to bring government services closer to the people and to minimize expenses on the part of the people. The nearest DFA offices are located in Tuguegarao, Cagayan, Baguio City and San Fernando, La Union. (JDP/VDB-PIA CAR, Ifugao)
