For the safety and welfare of our kababayans due to the COVID-19, and in line with health precautions advised by both Philippine and Japanese Governments, the Philippine Embassy will continue to implement ONLINE APPOINTMENTS ONLY for passport applicants until further notice.

The Philippine Embassy will also observe the following precautionary measures and entry procedures for all parts of the Embassy and Consular premises, effective immediately:

  1. Anyone with temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius is strongly advised to re-schedule his or her appointment and practice home quarantine. He or she may wish to call the multilingual hotlines provided by the Japanese government for advice. Please check https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20200219_29/ for the number to call.
  2. Those who are coughing or sneezing but without fever are required to wear a face mask upon entry and for the duration of their stay within the Embassy and consular premises.
  3. Those who enter the Embassy and consular premises are required to apply hand sanitizer.
  4. We encourage the public’s cooperation to ensure that only those with business to transact enter the premises. Please avoid loitering in the Embassy and consular premises.

We ask for the understanding of the public should some of the Embassy services take longer than usual to complete, due to the above and other measures we have instituted to watch over the health of our personnel and the general public.

The above measures are reviewed every week.
