To our fellow Pinoys in UAE, Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines – Abu Dhabi has posted an advisory on their website about red ribbon on authentication/notarization Philippine documents. Starting June 15, 2019, the Embassy will no longer include Red ribbons on the documents. More information below:
Be advised that documents are still being notarized / authenticated, but there will be no ‘red color ribbon’ added in the documents. There will be a gold seal with Embassy seal only.
Please share this advisory to make our fellow kabayans aware of the update. To ensure that we are informed of the new policy. Please see the announcement below:
