MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Foreign Affairs-Office of Consular Affairs (DFA-OCA) announced a new schedule for passport applicants who were unable to file their applications on Tuesday as government work is suspended in the National Capital Region (NCR) due to the heavy rains.

"In view of the continuing inclement weather brought about by heavy rains, passport applicants scheduled today, August 7, may come to the DFA-OCA and have their passports processed this entire week until Friday, August 10," the DFA said.

"Passport applicants are advised to bring their appointment slips with them," it added.
