Government Bodies & Offices: Where to Find Them in Cebu City

Photo by Bobit Gaviola

Growing up, we discover that we need to visit government offices as part of our adulting phase. When we were children, most of us got used to having our parents take care of all the paper work for us. However, our parents are not always there for us. We should learn to become more independent for ourselves.

It can get very confusing where to find these offices are, and so this article compiles many of the essential offices that you just might need.
