The Philippine ambassador to Kuwait, Mohamed Noureddine Lomendot, said the embassy has outsourced consular services – passports renewal services.
This has come in light of the resentment of some residents of Block 1 Salwa, where the current main embassy building is located since visitors park their vehicles in front and at the back of the building creating a kind of congestion.
In a statement to Al-Rai, the Philippine ambassador said that the contract with VFS Global, located in the United Market, UTC Building, Al-Sour Street, was signed at the end of last September. The visitors are received from Sunday to Thursday, from 09:00 in the morning until 5:00 pm.
He added all holders of Philippine electronic passports can now renew their passports at the center, which assists in filling out the passport renewal form application, in addition to courier services, so the renewed passports are delivered directly at the time and place determined by the applicant, as well as SMS alerts are available to inform customers on demand status.
