06 February 2021, New York City – The Philippine Consulate General in New York (PCGNY) held a special Consulate Saturday today to accommodate our kababayans whose booked appointments were canceled on 01 and 02 February, as a result of the winter snow storm and in compliance with New York City’s declaration of a state of emergency.
A total of 122 (One Hundred Twenty-Two) consular services were rendered.
In support of PCGNY’s efforts, the SSS desk was also open to entertain inquiries on pension and other benefits.
The usual COVID-19 health and safety protocols were enforced during the said Consulate Saturday, including wearing face masks, exercising physical distancing, and practicing hand hygiene.
