Philippine Consular Outreach
For live updates visit our Facebook Page
Every two years the FAAP strives to bring the Philippine Consulate General New York (PCGNY) to Pittsburgh so you don't have to travel to New York City. This event is a public service to Filipinos living in Western PA, and neighboring communities in Ohio and West Virginia
August 20, 2016, 10:00 AM
Homeville Christian Church, 4702 Eliza St., West Mifflin, PA 15122
IMPORTANT: We need at least 70 transactions! Please spread the word. So that we know that we have enough transactions to hold the outreach, please contact Fanny Spanos 412-327-5586
The Outreach Team offers the following services to PA residents:
- Passport processing (release of all new passport will be after ten (10) weeks)
- Passport Extension (same-day release only with Passport Renewal)
- Legalization of Documents (SPA, Authentication, Acknowledgement, Certifications, advice of securing NBI clearances, etc.)<
- Dual Citizenship
Services for Ohio and West Virginia residents
The Outreach Team can process passport renewal, dual citizenship, and notarial/SPA applications. However, they cannot entertain Civil Registry or acknowledgment of documents issued in states that are not under the jurisdiction of the PCGNY.
ATTENTION: Pre-processing of Passport, Dual Citizenship and Civil Registry ( Report of Marriage, Report of Birth) is REQUIRED.
Pre-registration documents must be received by the PCGNY one week before the scheduled Consular Outreach Activity, that is, on or before August 12, 2016.
Pre-registration Documents are downloadable from the consulate website. Here are the links:

Walk-ins are accommodated only for legalization of documents.
You will be paying the same fees as when applying directly at the Consulate. The FAAP is not charging any additional fees.
Since all passports take ten (10) weeks to process, applicants are advised to bring self-addressed pre-stamped Priority Mail USPS envelopes with Tracking Number so that they can receive their new passports through the mail.
