MANILA - The Department of Foreign Affairs-Office of Consular Affairs (DFA-OCA) on Wednesday extended its schedule for passport applicants who were unable to file their applications today due to the heavy rains brought by southwest monsoon (habagat).

"In view of the continuing inclement weather brought about by heavy rains, the DFA-OCA is suspending its passport and other consular operations today, August 8, from 3 p.m. onwards," it said.

"Passport applicants, scheduled on August 7 (Tuesday) and today, August 8 (Wednesday), who were unable to file their applications, may come to the DFA-OCA at anytime and have their passports processed this entire week until Wednesday next week, August 15," it added.

The DFA-OCA advised passport applicants to bring their appointment slips with them.
