Bringing onions, garlic home

On the same day, March 11, the consulate will be holding a free webinar to clarify the rules and procedures for taking home agricultural products like onions and garlic.

The awareness campaign comes as many expats have started packing onions into their suitcases on their way to the Philippines amid skyrocketing prices back home. This practice, in fact, is prohibited.

The PCG and the Office of the Agriculture Attaché will be explaining the guidelines during the webinar that will be held on March 11, 10am via Zoom and Facebook Live.
