The Bureau of Immigration (BI) needs over 150 new immigration officers and administrative aides.
Immigration Commissioner Norman Tansingco said they will hire 147 immigration officers and 28 administrative aides for deployment to the country’s major ports and other offices nationwide.
“The manpower augmentation is part of the agency’s move to ensure improvement of our services to the travelling public, especially now that the country is on its way to recovery.” Tansingco said.
According to Tansingco, the bureau needs a new breed of officers who have the passion and patriotism for public service.
“This is how we evolve with the times changing. We need to keep our frontlines fervent so as to guarantee efficiency in our ports,” he said.
He said applicants would need to undergo several examinations and interviews before being officially hired.
“It’s a rigorous selection process, but this is how we make sure that we get the best officers to man our borders,” Tansingco said.
Interested applicants are requested to submit their applications via the BI’s career portal at careers.immigration.gov.ph not later than Sept. 30.
