Just got word from the management of Robinsons Place General Santos that their mall will soon be playing host to the regional office of the Department of Foreign Affairs!

This means that the DFA which has been occupying a building inside the Gaisano compound for the past three years will soon be packing her bags, by the 2nd quarter of 2012.

To follow suit are the offices of NBI and maybe, franchisees of SSS, Philhealth, GSIS or LTO.  All these are part of the LINGKOD PINOY CENTER project of Robinsons which it is launching nationwide in all its branches.

The DFA GenSan office will occupy the vacant spaces beside the Cinemaworld Ticket Booth and will extend up to the Department Store.  It will operate based on the mall hours, which is from 9:30am to 8:00pm so expect this to be a more relaxing experience for people applying for passports.
