BI orders resident foreigners to report for annual registration

MANILA, Philippines — Foreign nationals registered with the Bureau of Immigration are ordered to report to the nearest immigration office for their annual report on January until March 1, 2018.

The bureau, in a statement on Tuesday, reminded registered foreigners that the 1951 Alien Registration Act requires them to report either to the main Immigration office in Intramuros, Manila or to the nearest bureau office within the first 60 days of every calendar year.

Those who fail to comply may face fines or imprisonment.
The order covers "resident foreign nationals who have been issued immigrant or non-immigrant visas and are holders of alien certificate of registration identity card (ACR I-card)."
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said that foreign nationals must present their original ACR I-Card and confirmation number, if  an appointment was made through the BI's 2018 annual report online system.

A report fee of P300 and P10 legal research fee are to be paid.

Morente also said: "For aliens who are not in the Philippines during the annual reporting period, they shall make the report within 30 days from the date of their return to the country, provided they have valid re-entry permits."

For BI-registered aliens aged 14 and below, their parent or guardian is required to make the report on their behalf.
Jose Carlitos Licas, a lawyer and the bureau's alien registration division chief, said that application forms, guidelines and information on the conduct of the 2018 annual report can be downloaded from the Bureau of Immigration website.

A list of BI designated offices for payment and registration are also found on the government website
