Gov't requires aliens to register

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (23 January) -- Immigration Commissioner Alipio Fernandez said all foreigners residing in the Philippines are required to register with the Bureau of Immigration as part of government's requirement to avoid deportation.

In Davao region, Alien Control Officer Benjamin Lao said the Bureau of Immigration (BI) is open to receive any foreigner residing in Southern Mindanao who wishes to be registered. The deadline is March 1, 2007.

Under Section 10 of the Alien Registration Act of 1950, it states that all foreigners who are holders of immigrant or non-immigrant visas should be properly documented or face immediate deportation.

Foreigners must report to the BI within the first 60 days of each year or from January 2 to March 1.

Any foreigner who fails to make the annual report can either be fined or be subjected go deportation proceedings for violating the alien registration law.

Foreigners should bring with them their alien certificates of registration (ACRs) or I-Card as well as the official receipt of the annual report fee they paid in the previous year upon registration at the BI. They can report to any BI field offices nearest their residence.

Alien registration fee is P300 and legal research fee is P10.00. (PIA-XI) [top]
