No more extension for foreigners' I-cards

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (12 September) -- Bureau of Immigration (BI) alien control officer Benjamin Lao announced that the bureau has not extended the deadline for foreign nationals to avail of the I-Cards that were made available since last month (August).

In answer to queries, foreign nationals can still get their I-Cards but they have to pay the corresponding penalties, Lao said.

The BI regional office has been accommodating alien registration since last June this year but it seems that foreign nationals have taken for granted the importance of having an I-Card of their own, he said.

Those who fail to secure their I-Cards to be able to make legal their stay in the country can still secure the I-Cards but they already have to pay necessary penalties or face deportation for being undocumented aliens.

The new I-Cards for aliens replaces the Alien Certificates of Registration or ACR identity card. The BI have launched the new I-Card project in line with the President's agenda of providing adequate services to the people and make government transactions "paperless" which is more convenient to foreigners staying in the country.

BI has also rationalized the process for registration since applicants' documentary requirements are evaluated and recommended for approval. (PIA-XI) [top]
