 On-location Services by the Consular Division of the Embassy of Japan (Newport News)

 October 21, 2006


 

 We had the on-location services by the Consular Division of the Embassy of Japan in the gymnasium of the Newport News Japanese School. The event was very convenient for Japanese in this area because they could renew their passport, register for overseas election, making it unnecessary to go to Washington DC. A lot of Japanese people utilize this service every year. This year, more than 100 Japanese people took advantage of  this service.

 A used book and bazaar are also held by the Newport News Japanese School. Many people look forward to coming to these events, and this year saw a lot of participation.

 

We held this event in the gymnasium.

 

 

Five staff members of the Consular Division of the Embassy of Japan left Washington DC in the early morning for Newport News. Thank you very much.

Many Japanese visited for renewal of their passports and to register for overseas election.

 

Staff members of the Embassy brought free Japanese magazines, which are distributed around the Washington DC area.
