The Philippine Embassy informs the public that in view of the unabating upsurge in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and the ROK Government's decision to extend, indefinitely, the heightened social distancing measures imposed in Seoul and the surrounding areas (Gyeonggi Province and Incheon), the Embassy and POLO-OWWA Korea will continue to provide services to the public from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, Sunday to Thursday, until further notice when the South Korean government lifts the tougher social distancing measures it is currently implementing.

In case of emergency, the Embassy may be contacted through the following:

Emergency Hotline (Outside of office hours, including weekends and holidays) 010-9365-2312
ATN Hotline 010-9263-8119
