Marseille, almost 800 kilometers away from the Embassy in Paris, has been a regular site for the Philippine Embassy’s regular consular outreach missions due to the large concentration of Filipinos in the area. The Embassy intends to have another outreach mission in the South of France for 2019 and will continue to program this activity which benefits a large number of Filipinos in the years to come.
