Welcome Message

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Philippines in Washington, D.C., where we provide information about the Philippines, the services that the Embassy extends, as well as relevant events held in the United States.

Philippine foreign policy will continue to be defined by the three pillars of promoting national security, enhancing economic diplomacy, and protecting the rights and welfare of Filipinos overseas.  For the Philippines, the United States will remain to be a vital partner, given that we share such common values as democracy, rule of law, and open market economies.

The Embassy and the other Philippine Foreign Service posts throughout the U.S. are fully committed to protecting the interests of overseas Filipino workers and responsive to their needs and welfare.  The Filipino diaspora in the U.S. is a force to be harnessed and a crucial partner in building on Philippine-American ties.
