BI: 75 new grads to increase the workforce at offices and airports

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) said on Tuesday that 75 new employees will be stationed at airports and various locations across the country.

The recently graduated immigration officers (IOs) will take care of the manpower demands in airports and other offices, according to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco.

We require a new breed of officers to handle the rising passenger flow as we continue to recover from the effects of the Covid-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic, he said in a statement.

The BI director continued, “We also believe that by taking this measure, we will enhance our resolve to combat human trafficking and impede the entry of unwelcome foreigners into our borders.

The new class of IOs received their diplomas from the BI’s Philippine Immigration Academy (PIA) in Clark, Pampanga. It was formally acknowledged on Monday during a graduation ceremony at Terminal 3 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

There were 53 men and 22 women among the graduates. Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla attended the ceremony and spoke as the honoree and guest of honor.

The Justice secretary added in his speech, “I am happy to have been granted the opportunity to address you this morning.

“You are soldiers and warriors, yet you have been given a work that is occasionally referred to as banal but is very important at a time when terrorism and other crimes have no bounds to their borders. He continued that you restrict the migration of people who won’t benefit our nation.

Tansingco mentioned that the 75 went through a new fast-tracked course to give new IOs who will work as front liners in the nation’s top airports “a brief and concise learning experience.”

Under the BI-PIA, all immigration officials receive training on immigration laws, regulations, and practices. They received in-house training at the NAIA to offer a more comprehensive, practical education.

Likewise, the new IOs received training on the most recent and effective migration techniques, and they are now ready to be deployed right after the course.

The Commissioner continued by saying that to improve how immigration officers carry out their jobs, soft skills were taught as part of the training.

The additional 75 cops will work alongside the almost 1,000 people stationed at various international airports.
