The Philippine Embassy will remain closed from 23 February to 28 March 2021 following the recent announcement of the UK Government to extend the lockdown and stay-at-home restrictions. This is a precautionary measure to safeguard the health of the public and our personnel.
Appointments scheduled from 23 February to 28 March are deemed CANCELLED. Applicants with confirmed appointments on the affected dates must reschedule their appointments through VFS Global Services: https://bit.ly/3lbwFAV
We urge the Filipino community to heed UK Government advice by staying at home and postponing all non-essential travel.
In case of death or detention of Philippine citizens, please call +44 78 0279 0695.
Alternatives are available for those who are still unable to renew their Philippine passport despite having already requested for a passport validity extension. A further one-year extension may be granted only in strict circumstances and subject to a thorough process of evaluation.
