Welcome to the website of the Philippine Consulate General in Jeddah. Through this site, we aim to provide you with information on our services, updates on our activities, timely advisories, and relevant information about the Philippines. We hope that this website can contribute to the overall mission of the Government in advancing the interest of the Philippines and the Filipino people in the world community.
This website’s main audience is the overseas Filipino workers (OFW), particularly those in the Western Region of Saudi Arabia. The OFWs are our partners in the pursuit of the national interest and in the promotion and protection of their rights and well being. By way of their feedback and cooperation we endeavour to put in place in the Consulate a highly responsive system, which ensure effective delivery of service.
We also aim to reach the Saudi people through this website and informing them about the Philippines, its vast business opportunities, and a very exciting travel destination – from which they will discover that . . . it is more fun in the Philippines.
SA LAHAT PO NG AMING PINAGLILINGKURANG MGA BOSS KABAYAN,
Humihingi po kami ng paumanhin sa inyong lahat sa aming biglaang pagtigil ng aming serbisyo't operasyon kahapon ng hapon ng hindi sa nakatakdang oras. Tinitiyak po namin sa inyong lahat na hindi po namin ito kagustohan at may kabigatan ng loob na isinagawa namin ito.
Ito'y naganap dahil may nakialam na ilang mga Kabayan natin sa aming sistema at walang pahintulot at puwersahang binuksan nila ang aming mga gate na naging dahilan ng hindi na maawat na pagpasok ng mga tao. Ang grupong ito ay nagtake-over din ng patakbo sa pagre-release ng mga isinurender na mga pasaporte sa 2nd floor ng Consulado. Sinubukan po namin silang kausapin at ayusin ang gusot na ito ngunit kami'y nabigo. Sinaktan pa po nila ang isa sa aming mataas na opisyal (Consul) dito sa Konsulado. Ito ang dahilan kung kaya po napilitan kaming magsara ng pansamantala kahapon. Ipagpaumanhin po sana ninyo ito uli!
Ngayong araw, 19 ng Mayo, ay magpapatupad kami ng bagong sistema. Inaasahan po namin na sa inyong kooperasyon, suporta at magpapakita ng pagkadisiplinado. Alam namin na ito'y oobra at magtatatagumpay lamang kung tayong lahat ay magkakapit-bisig at magtulongan. Sana po umpisa sa araw na ito, tuloy-tuloy nang magigiging maayos ang sistema upang ating makamit ang inaasahang pag-uwi ng marami sa Pilipinas at pag-aayos ng status sa trabaho at pananatili sa Saudi ng iba pa.
MARAMING SALAMAT PO SA KANILANG LAHAT! KASIHAN NAWA TAYO NG POONG MAYKAPAL!!!
