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

 November 3, 2007


 

 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 large number of Japanese people utilize this service every year. This year, more than 80 Japanese people took advantage of  the 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.

 

The JVS had opportunities to have a discussion with the staff members of the Embassy. It was very much appreciated by everyone present.
