Are you a Filipino national stuck in Canada during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic Who needs help? Here’s the Philippine embassy telephone number and email.
During times of emergencies (such as the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic), you should always know where to turn if you need help. If you are currently in Canada with a Philippine passport and are not a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, you should know enough to ask for help from the Philippine embassy or one of its consulates in Canada.
If you are not a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident in Canada, chances are you’re one of the following: a visitor, an international student or a temporary foreign worker. That means that if you need help, you should only turn to the Philippine embassy or one of its consulates.
WHY SHOULD I ASK FOR HELP FROM THE PHILIPPINE EMBASSY
The Philippine embassy and its consulate generals are responsible for Filipino nationals in Canada.
That means that they are required to extend consular assistance whenever requested.
As you can imagine, everyone’s resources are stretched pretty thin during these difficult times, but you should still be able to ask for help from an official from the embassy or its consulates.
Remember, if you are not a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, access to certain services (including healthcare) are extremely limited.
Which is why we’ve always maintained that Canada is one of the worst places in the world to be an illegal alien.
If you are without status (like if your Visitor Visa, Student Permit or your Work Permit has expired) you should really talk to someone from the Philippine embassy.
Philippine embassy staff does NOT report Filipinos without legal status in Canada to Canadian immigration officials. They will only suggest courses of action that will benefit the Filipino national requesting for assistance.
Most Filipinos generally shy away from the Philippine embassy unless they have business (such as applying for a passport) or if the need is dire (like when they are about to be deported).
While the Philippine embassy’s resources might be stretched thin during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, they are still the best place for information for Filipino nationals in Canada who are NOT Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
