Continuing to raise the image of the Philippines through efficiency and promotion of the spirit of bayanihan, the Philippine Embassy in Kuala Lumpur can be considered by Filipino tourists and expats as a home away from home and the place to run to in times of need.
Headed by Philippine Ambassador to Malaysia Jose Eduardo Malaya III, the embassy is not only a picture of elegance but a place of quality service for Filipinos in Malaysia. Through the leadership of Ambassador Malaya, the embassy opens its doors to Filipinos and even foreigners who seek assistance, thus showing that the government is working for its people even abroad, as well as building stronger people-to-people ties not only to fellow Filipinos but with Malaysians.
Built in the 1960s, the Philippine Embassy in Kuala Lumpur used to be a two-storey residence. But through the efforts and patriotic hearts of Filipinos working in Malaysia and through the initiatives of Vista, the chancery underwent a facelift making it more prestigious and conducive for visiting Filipinos.
Some significant changes are the community hall and library, the expansion of the consular area for processing of passports and interview, better counters to serve the public, and free wi-fi connection for the use and enjoyment of its clients and visitors.
