PH Embassy in Riyadh launches new website address

The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh has its new website address: riyadhpe.dfa.gov.ph

phembassyriyadh

For those who are used to typing the old website address of the PH embassy in Riyadh (www.philembassy.riyadh.org), you will be redirected to the new website address but do not worry, though, as nothing has been changed in the content of the website.
The layout of the new website is now similar tot what we have in the Department of Foreign Affairs’website. But features and notices are still arranged in the same way as it was in the old internet address.
