THE EMBASSY OF THE UNITED STATES IS TRANSMITTING THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION THROUGH THE EMBASSY WARDEN SYSTEM AS A PUBLIC SERVICE TO AMERICAN CITIZENS IN THE PHILIPPINES. PLEASE DISSEMINATE THIS MESSAGE TO ALL U.S. CITIZENS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION OR NEIGHBORHOOD. 

Due to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Ministers and Leaders’ Meetings taking place the week of November 16 – 20, the U.S. Embassy in Manila would like to inform residents and visitors of the following:

·         The U.S. Embassy will be closed to the public the week of November 16 – 20, 2015. Routine consular services, including visas, will not be available. Assistance will be available to American citizens with only urgent emergencies.  For emergency assistance, American citizens may contact the embassy at (63) (2) 301-2000.
