The Consulate General of the Philippines winds up its Consular Outreach season for 2022 by travelling to Bristol, Connecticut for its second to the last “Konsulado on the Go” service for the year which benefitted over 200 kababayan.

The consular outreach mission was a co-sponsored by the Pilipino Association of Connecticut, Inc., in cooperation with Philippine-American Association of Connecticut and KIDS Philippines. The consular mission provided passport renewal, dual citizenship, civil registry, and notarial services for members of the Filipino community in Connecticut.

A total of 205 consular services were extended during the mission in Bristol.

Mr. Bienvenido Balaoing of the Pilipino Association of Connecticut, Inc. commended the Consulate Team for an excellent job.

“It was a very successful and efficient outreach event. The Filipino community really appreciates the Consulate coming here because our kababayan no longer have to travel all the way to New York to avail of your services,” Mr. Balaoing said. The community and the organizers all look forward to a repeat visit next year.

Also joining the outreach mission was Tourism Representative Francisco M. Lardizabal, who shared with kababayan the latest information about traveling to the Philippines as well as presenting brochures containing various tourist destinations in the country.

The Consulate has scheduled one more outreach mission for Pittsburg on 05-06 November as part of its efforts to extend consular services to other kababayan. The Pittsburg mission will be this year’s 11 th outreach. Last year it conducted 13 outreach missions that served more than 2,000 kababayan. END.
