An experience to remember: Philippine Consulate, Houston, Texas
By Dermiel R. Robles
Phoenix, Arizona - After 3 years of living in a foreign land, we felt proud and honored to be at the doorstep of the Philippine General Consulate in Houston, Texas. In our excitement, we took our souvenir photos in front of the Consulate before we do our business --renewing my wife's passport. We migrated to the US in February 2019 and stayed in Phoenix, Arizona.
We flew from Phoenix to Houston after we finalized the appointment at the Philippine Consulate General. We have mixed emotions while entering the premises of the Consulate General. We cannot explain how we felt at that time while waiting for our turn. We went to the Embassy to renew my wife's passport because we plan to spend the new year in our hometown together with our two Kids.
For the photocopy, it will be $1 per copy (2 copies = $2), and the envelope with a stamp for the delivery will cost around $15 dollars. When completed, you will go back to the DFA office and submit the duplicate copy together with the envelope you bought. After this, you will proceed to the cashier to pay for the renewal processing which is pegged at $60 dollars. So the total expenses incur are around $78 these does not include the transportation, food, and accommodation plus the extra effort you exerted to make this thing possible.
Well, maybe I just expected too much, and maybe the Philippine Consular Office in Houston, Texas have their reason for this kind of service being provided to their countrymen. At any rate, it is still nice to see how our country improve a lot. PMAA.
