ON RA 7919 VISA RESTAMPING
 
 
Manila, Philippines--- The Bureau of Immigration (BI) issued its new rules on re-stamping of visas for permanent residents under Republic Act No. 7919 (RA7919), otherwise known as The Alien Social Integration Act of 1995.
 
Under Immigration Administrative Circular No. SBM-2015-001, all RA7919 holders must have the new security visa stamp implemented in their passports as a requirement for renewal of their Alien Certificate of Registration (ACR) I-Card.
 
RA7919 granted permanent residency to illegal aliens upon compliance with certain conditions provided in the law. “The new guidelines intend to update the BI’s database on holders of the visa”, said BI spokesperson Elaine Tan.
 
Visa holders must submit the following documents to process the re-stamping application:
1.      Duly accomplished RA7919 Re-stamping form;
2.      Photocopy of passport pages showing:
a.      Bio-data page;
b.      Latest admission as 7919 visa holder;
c.       Old RA 7919 visa imprint;
d.      New/amended name of the applicant, if any; and
3.
      Photocopy of ACR I-Card (front and back).
 
“The new rules will take effect around the second week of March, or 15 days after publication in two newspapers of general circulation”, said Tan.
