Bureau of Immigration hiring 100 new immigration officers

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Monday said it is looking for 100 immigration officers to man the international airports and seaports nationwide.


According to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, the hiring of new Immigration personnel is part of the agency’s drive to strengthen border control and improve its services to the traveling public.

"The 100 items are for Immigration Officer I positions with Salary Grade Level 11. You must be a graduate of a four-year course, and have a Career Service Professional Second Level Eligibility from the Civil Service (Commission)," he said in a statement.

"We see the lack of manpower as one of the primary impediments in delivering a more efficient government service. Through this hiring, we intend to provide faster and smoother processing in our ports," Morente added.

The BI chief said the incoming officers, once hired, will undergo rigorous training under the agency's Center for Training and Research before deployment.

"They will be housed at the Philippine Immigration Academy in Clark, Pampanga where they will undergo two-month training on immigration laws and procedures. After which, they will be assigned in different BI offices as on-the-job trainees," he added.

Morente said hired officers must pass examinations before being deployed.

"We will only deploy immigration officers who will pass the immigration officers' course. Being an immigration officer is not easy both physically and mentally. That is also why we will only employ the best of the best," he added.

Interested applicants may visit the website careers.immigration.gov.ph to lodge their application.

Morente said they are continuously hiring to ensure that the upcoming new international airports are fully manned.
