PRESS RELEASE

25 February 2014

LAST DAY OF ANNUAL REPORT: MARCH 1

To accommodate foreigners who will file their annual report on the eleventh-hour, the offices of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) nationwide will be open the whole day of March 1, Saturday.

BI Commissioner Siegfred Mison reminded all foreigners that they have only until March 1 to report in person for their annual report. The registration has started last January 2 in BI Offices nationwide. There will be no extension.

The annual report is required under the Alien Registration Act of 1950 which directs all foreigners to personally report to the BI within the first 60 days of every calendar year. It also aims to strictly enforce compliance of the immigration law in the interest of national security, public safety, and public order.

“We encouraged all foreigners to file the annual report to our BI offices located in key cities nationwide,” Mison explained. An application fee of P310 is required as part of the requirements for reportage. If a foreigner fails to file an annual report within the 60 days, a P200 penalty will be imposed every month. Mison said they assigned additional personnel in processing areas and put up senior citizens lane and additional cashier windows until the last day of filing. As of date, there are 66,349 foreign nationals who have filed their Annual Report which requires finger printing, notarization and personal appearance.

The process is in anticipation for the full automation of immigration processes which eventually will enhance and hasten the services being given by the bureau for foreign nationals, visiting here or staying here permanently, the immigration chief added.
