In case you are not aware, the Manila U.S. Embassy’s phone number changed recently.
It is now: 02-5-301-2000.
The sneaky 5 was added.
The Social Security office can also be reached at that number.
When the recording starts, press 9. Social Security only takes calls on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am to 11am.
Thanks and a tip of the hat to the folks at RAO Subic Bay.
Also, and a further tip of the hat to reader Lewis:
Anyway, I called the U.S. Embassy (today, Dec. 9, 2019), to get the numbers for the Visa Call Center, and the numbers given in the recording are not complete/correct. I called the embassy mainline, got the operator and got the correct numbers. Please take note:
