Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Norman Tansingco assured that their frontline personnel remains on heightened alert and that they have enough manpower to cater to the needs of the traveling public despite the onslaught of Typhoon ‘Paeng’.

The BI, he said, remains in full force for the influx of passengers who are traveling in and out of the country at the country’s ports during the long weekend commemorating All Souls’ Day.

“Our officers remain in full force to avoid service interruptions during this long Undas weekend. This is so our border security is not compromised amid passenger influx,” said Tansingco, even as additional personnel have been assigned at the airports, and a rapid response team is in place to ensure that all counters at the ports are manned.

He said that: passengers were affected by the Typhoon Paeng, which resulted in the cancellation of several domestic and international flights but despite the adverse weather, our immigration officers remain on duty to serve the traveling public,” said Tansingco. “Many of them brave strong rains and flood just to be able to report for duty and perform our mandate.”

Tansingco acknowledged the service of the BI’s frontline personnel who still render services during weekends and holidays.

“We remain true to our duty as public servants and will ensure that we continue providing quality service,” the BI chief said.
