HILO, Hawaii: The County of Hawaii issued this media release about an important date for Filipino immigrants on Hawaii Island:
The Philippine Consulate Outreach Team, in partnership with the County of Hawai’i’s Immigration Information Office, will be in Hilo on Monday, August 29th from 8am to 6pm at the Aupuni Center Conference Room, 101 Pauahi St., Hilo. The Consulate will be available to process Philippine passports and accept applications for Dual Citizenship, Delayed Registration of Birth, Report of Marriage Abroad and other consular services.
Filipino and Filipino-American citizens of Hawai’i County are encouraged to submit applications as the Consulate comes to Hilo only once a year. Most consular services require personal appearance so applicants must to travel to Honolulu for passport applications and renewals. The Consular Outreach allows neighbor island applicants to avoid travel expenses that would otherwise be incurred by having to travel off island to submit applications in person.
This will also be an opportunity to meet Paul Raymund Cortes, Deputy Consul General, and other members of the Honolulu staff, who will be available to answer questions and concerns about Philippine related issues.
