Blacklisted male Indian attempts to enter RP, is thwarted

AN attempt by a blacklisted Indian man to enter the country last May 6 at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 was thwarted by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).

The said Indian identified as Kulwinder Singh was reportedly intercepted upon his arrival on a Scoot airlines flight TR390 from Singapore. He was required to board the next available flight back to his port of origin.

BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco said Singh was found to be the subject of a blacklist order issued against him in 2023 after being stopped then for being likely to become a public charge.

Singh attempted to re-enter the country, but was denied after his name was found to be in the BI’s database of undesirable foreigners.

Tansingco, stressing tdhe importance of vigilance in safeguarding the country’s borders, said: “Our primary responsibility is to ensure the integrity of our immigration procedures and protect our nation from individuals who pose a threat to our security.”
