The Philippine Honorary Consulate General in Stockholm does not process passport and visa applications. Said applications should be made directly with the Philippine Embassy in Oslo, Noway.
In accordance with the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, the Philippine Honorary Consulate General performs its authentication/legalization function/services. Given the existence of a multi-state system, aforesaid Convention stipulates that, among other things, the various types of documents sourced from particular sovereign states (e.g. public documents, private documents, and commercial documents) shall have validity or operative effect in another sovereign state's legal jurisdiction after subjected to an agreed upon authentication procedure.
The Philippine Honorary Consulates are able to process specific categories of consular documents, such as:
- Acknowledgment and notarization of legal affidavits and certificates;
- Legalization or authentication of foreign documents, duly legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Legalization Section) in Sweden;
- Issuance of travel documents for Filipinos (one-way direct travel to the Philippines);
- Certifications and filing of civil registry reports, e.g., reports of birth, marriage or death); (Filing of civil registry reports must be done within one year after the event has taken place. For delayed registration, an affidavit of delayed registration must be executed, which would incur additional cost).
