The Bureau of Immigration (BI) said its officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and other international ports are on standby for the resumption of flights to the Philippines later this week.

According to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente, Immigration Officers assigned at the airports still continue to render full-time duties despite the suspension of inbound commercial passenger flights. “Our officers continue to work on skeletal deployment as their services are still needed to process other types of flights that are not covered by the suspension,” BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said.

Morente explained that aside from conducting immigration inspection and boarding formalities for international passengers, BI officers are also mandated to process the pilots and crew of cargo, maintenance and utility flights that enter and leave the country. Records show that around 50 cargo planes fly in and out of NAIA in the past days. “These pilots and crew are all subject to routine immigration processing and inspection, be they foreigners or Filipinos,” the BI chief added.

All pending Visa Application continue valid.

Update MAR-APR 2020The Bureau of Immigration (BI) announced that Flight cancellations by the airlines and travel restrictions implemented due to the COVID-19 outbreak has prompted the Bureau of Immigration (BI) to scale down its operations and downsize its workforce at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Starting today, we are relocating our offices and operations at Terminals 2 and 3 to Terminal 1 where all flights to and from NAIA shall take place,” BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said.

Earlier, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) announced that it was moving all its operations to NAIA’s Terminal 1 in view of the suspension of many flights by different airlines due to the ongoing enhanced community quarantine. Morente disclosed that as a result of the downscaling of airport operations, the BI has assigned a skeletal workforce at the NAIA that would suffice to ensure the uninterrupted delivery of immigration services to the travelling public.

“This would enable our personnel to lessen the risk of getting infected by this virus,” the BI chief said. Morente added that the action was to ensure that hazards are minimized, as the officers continued to report as frontliners at the airport amidst the ongoing community quarantine to fight the spread of COVID-19. According to BI port operations division chief Grifton Medina, all of the immigration officers assigned at NAIA’s three terminals have been instructed to report for duty at Terminal 1 until the resumption of normal flight operations.

Medina said that as a result of the downsizing of operations, BI officers manning NAIA’s immigration counters are now on skeletal force. “We are now fully compliant with the requirements of the enhanced community quarantine wherein government employees are enjoined to maintain a minimal number of employees without compromising the delivery of services to the public,” Medina added.

He assured that there are enough BI officers who will be on hand to conduct immigration formalities for passengers of the few international flights that will continue to fly in and out of the NAIA during the quarantine period.

Update MAR-APR 2020The Bureau of Immigration (BI) announced that they will temporarily be allowing foreign nationals with approved and implemented visas but awaiting release of their Alien Certificate of Registration Identity Card (ACR I-Card) to depart the country.

Said announcement was in light of the Enhanced Community Quarantine and Stringent Social Distancing Measures directive from Malacanang. Regular procedures require departing aliens wtih approved visas but pending ACR I-Card to secure a Waiver at the BI's main office. “We will no longer be requiring ACR I-Card Waiver Orders for departing foreign nationals.

With the rapid spike in COVID-19 cases, we were prompted to make additional measures to lessen person to person contact,” said Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente. In lieu of the ACR I-Card Waiver Order, the requirements to be presented in the airport are as follows:

Passport with valid visa, as indicated in the implementation stamp, official receipts of the ACR I-Card Waiver Application Fee and Emigration Clearance Certificate (ECC) with Returning Permit (RP) or Special Resident Certificate (SRC), whichever is applicable. Morente further advised departing foreign nationals to keep said requirements as the same will be needed for when they enter the country again under their respective visas.

In accordance with Executive Order No 24, Series 2020 ordered LIQUOR BAN in all Supermarkets.
