BI TO FILL-UP VACANT POSITIONS
Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Siegfred B. Mison announced the commencement of the process to fill-up 173 vacant positions for hiring and promotion.
“Some of the positions were created as a result of the rationalization plan under the Department of Justice, while others were vacated by reason of retirement, resignation or dismissal from the service.” said Mison.
“Of the 173 vacancies, 105 do not require prior work experience,” added Mison.
