If a Filipino citizen would like to submit documents to be notarized, particularly the Affidavit of Support & Guarantee (ASG), which is often intended to be used within the Philippines before their departure, the Philippine Consulate General in Xiamen offers notarial services for that purpose.

OFWs who reside in Xiamen may apply for ASG at the Philippine Consulate General, Nos. 2 and 3 Lingxiang Li, Lianhua Xin Cun, Siming District, Xiamen City, 361009, Fujian Province, People’s Republic of China. Before visiting the PCG, an applicant must schedule an appointment. PCG accepts appointments starting at 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday.

Please be aware that the application must contain specific requirements from both the sponsor and the sponsored individual, such as a valid passport, proof of their relationship, proof of income, and so on.

The issue of a visa or entrance is not assured by the presence of an ASG. It serves as a sort form for the documentation that is needed to get a visa. When Filipinos are being supported by family members or intend to visit relatives in China, Philippine Bureau of Immigration (BI) officials typically request ASG documents.
