An email will be sent to the concerned applicants to confirm their new appointment schedule.

Authentication applicants also need to print out the new email with their new schedule and must bring their documents for authentication on the new appointment date.
“Please be advised that the schedules may still be subject to sudden changes due to unforeseen circumstances or changes in the policies of local governments and mall partners which host these COs,” the DFA said.
