Uptown Bonifacio has partnered with the Department of Foreign Affairs for the opening of a new Temporary Off-Site Passport Service (DFA TOPS) at Uptown Mall as it looks to help the government’s efforts in expanding its reach and cater to more Filipino travelers, especially Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in processing of necessary documents for international travel.
The new DFA TOPS office will be open Mondays to Fridays, from 9AM to 5PM, and is located at the Lower Ground Floor, Uptown Mall Link, Uptown Mall. DFA TOPS will serve individuals who have confirmed appointments through www.passport.gov.ph.
The launch was attended by (L-R) Jessica Cuevas, Uptown Mall Officer; Ma. Aurora D. Pastolero, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls Special Projects Manager; Michael G. Lao, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls AVP for Mall Operations – Special Projects; Michael J. Dalumpines, Chairman and President, APO Production Unit, Inc.; Hon. Senen T. Mangalile, Assistant Secretary, Office of the Consular Affairs; Hon. Brigido J. Dulay, Undersecretary, Civilian Security and Consular Affairs; Lorence D. Aurelio, General Manager of Uptown Bonifacio; Jose Maria Castillo, Uptown Mall Head; Fernando Anonuevo, Deputy General Manager of, Uptown Mall.[/caption]
DFA TOPS will serve as an extension of the government agency in issuing passport services, including issuance and renewal of passports by Filipino citizens. With the establishment of a satellite office in Uptown Bonifacio, Megaworld hopes to bring more ease to the high demand of passport applications at Taguig City and other neighboring areas.
“We look forward to the continued alliance between Megaworld and the national government in the purpose of nation-building and improving the lives of our fellow citizens,” said Lorence Aurelio, General Manager, Uptown Bonifacio.
