Year-long registration for aliens
DAGUPAN CITY – The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has set a year-long schedule for the registration of aliens or foreigners in the Philippines.
Gilbert Lopez, BI chief in Pangasinan, said the Alien Registration Program (ARP) is set from October 1, 2014 until September 30, 2015.
‘The ARP aims to account, register, capture information, enrol fingerprints and update the Bureau’s alien data base as well as provide assistance for visa-related problems,” Lopez told the Philippine Information Agency. Aliens availing of the program must personally apply at any authorized BI regional office and must bring duly filled-out ARP form and valid identification cards like passport or driver’s license.
In 2014, there are at least 1,120 documented foreigners in Pangasinan. Fifty percent of which are students while the remaining 50 percent are immigrants. (PIA-VHS)
