I recently got word from Robinsons Place GenSan that finally, the Consular Office of the Department of Foreign Affairs will open inside their mall!

We first blogged about this last year (READ: DFA TO TRANSFER TO ROBINSONS) and now, after months and months of delay, through Robinsons’ LINGKOD PINOY Program, DFA GenSan will start serving the public on Monday, September 3, 2012.

The new DFA office will operate from Mondays to Fridays except holidays and will be open from 9:30am to 6:30pm.

While waiting for their passports to be released, applicants may watch a movie at Robinsons Movieworld right beside the office, check out any of the stores inside the mall or eat at the restaurants at the Al Fresco strip. ย They may also check out the merchandise at Robinsons Department Store or go grocery shopping at the Supermarket.

THE LOBBY OF THE NEW DFA CONSULAR OFFICE AT ROBINSONS PLACE GENSAN BESIDE THE MOVIEWORLD.

How’s that for convenience?
