Business World - - THE NATION - Dane An­gelo M. Ene­rio

THE BUREAU of Im­mi­gra­tion (BI) has started is­su­ing new ar­rival and de­par­ture cards for in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­gers at the Ni­noy Aquino In­ter­na­tional Air­port (NAIA). In a state­ment on July 12, BI of­fi­cer-in-charge Deputy Com­mis­sioner Marc Red Mar­iñas said “the old ar­rival and de­par­ture card (were) phased out due to ob­ser­va­tions that it did not pro­vide suf­fi­cient in­for­ma­tion about a trav­eler who en­ters or leaves the coun­try.” “[P]as­sen­gers are now asked to write their full name, na­tion­al­ity, pass­port num­ber, con­tact num­ber, flight/voy­age num­ber, pur­pose of trip, oc­cu­pa­tion, port of exit/des­ti­na­tion, and their ad­dress here and abroad,” the state­ment read. —
