History – philippine consulate in Frankfurt, Germany

The Philippine Consulate General in Frankfurt, Germany, began on March 04, 2009. However, before its commencement, the Philippines had already established an honorary Consulate General in Frankfurt AM Main.  In 2018, the Philippine Government started to consider reopening the Consulate. As announced by Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, this reopening aims to expand the diplomatic mission under President Rodrigo Duterte.

The PH Consulate was provisionally resumed in October 2018, and it was fully reestablished for having consular services on January 15, 2019. It was still under the supervision of the PH Embassy in Berlin. Up until the present, the primary purpose of the Philippine Consulate still stands, which is to uphold diplomatic relations in Germany and represent the country’s interests.
