Over 3,000 CamSur residents benefit from Passport on Wheels project, Gov. Villafuerte says
More than 3,000 residents of Camarines Sur have benefited from the Mobile Passport Service brought by the Provincial Capitol in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
Governor Migz Villafuerte said than over 3,000 residents received services from the Passport on Wheels project last week as he thanked the CamSur Public Employment Service Office for leading the project.
“Passport on Wheels hatid ng Kapitolyo. Mahigit kumulang 3,000 na indibidwal ang matutulungan ng Kapitolyo na makakuha ng passport. Salamat sa Camsur Peso at sa DFA,” said Governor Villafuerte.
One one of the applicants, Christine Joy Cortez, said that the project was beneficial as it was convenient for her.
She said that she has tried setting an appointment in DFA Legazpi to get passport but when she heard the Passport on Wheels, she immediately grabbed the opportunity.
“I used to always try to get an appointment at DFA Legazpi but when I heard about the Mobile Passport here in CamSur, I immediately grabbed the opportunity and inquired about it. It is a lot easier and accessible because everything is here and I no longer have to travel to Legazpi,” the 21-year-old Cortez said.
“Aside from travel, I’m applying for passport because I will try working abroad. I want to thank the DFA and the Provincial Government for bringing the Mobile Passport here in CamSur,” she added.
