WASHINGTON, D.C. –– A cloud-based electronic queue management system was launched Dec. 20 by the Philippine Embassy to enable consular clients to easily register and queue in for passport, visa, civil registration, documents notarization, dual citizenship applications, and other consular services.

In a live demonstration of the new system, QLess, Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Manuel G. Romualdez noted that it replaces physical lines and waiting rooms with virtual, mobile lines. Applicants may roam freely while waiting wherever and however they want. QLess alerts them on their mobile phone when their turn is approaching.

Using QLess, applicants may visit the Embassy website to view wait times, schedule appointments at least a week in advance, or join a virtual queue remotely via the website, on-site kiosk or mobile phone.

Romualdez said, “The introduction of the system is part of the Embassy’s continuing endeavor to improve and enhance the delivery of frontline services to its clients.”

He added that other Philippine Foreign Service Posts may wish to adopt the system after its efficiency and usefulness have been tested after a month.
