To arrange an appointment at the Italian embassy in Manila, the first step would be to contact the embassy either over the Internet, by telephone or by visiting them in person.
Once you've contacted the embassy, the next step would be to discuss your enquiry with the administrative clerk that you initially deal with, and they will be able to book you in for an appointment if they are unable to assist you themselves.
What help can the Italian embassy provide?
It's worth adding that these days many embassies will have dedicated websites that can be a good source of information and may help direct you to the contact details of the office you need to get in touch with.
For example, the website of the Italian Embassy in Manila provides a range of information regarding visa requirements. This can be accessed by clicking on the INFORMATION AND SERVICES-VISAS link that is found at the top of the website’s home page.
