From August 30 to 31, a six-member team from the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco conducted an outreach mission in Boise, Idaho in partnership with the the Filipino American Association of Idaho, Inc.
Boise is the capital and most populous city of Idaho. 2010 US Census Statistics indicate that from 1,614 Filipinos in 2000, there are now approximately over 3,000 Filipinos living in that State.
The outreach mission saw applicants coming not only from Boise and other parts of Idaho, but also from neighboring states who came to avail themselves of the consular services the six-member team extended such as, passport renewal, notarials, civil registry, and dual citizenship services.
Conducted once every other year, this outreach mission is the fourth outreach mission of the Consulate General in Idaho. It is also the twenty-fifth outreach mission of the calendared forty one outreach missions arranged for 2013.
