AN executive of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) was recognized by the Department of Tourism (DOT) for his eTravel system project.

Jose Dennis Javier, BI Technical Assistant for Border Control Operations and Chairperson of the eTravel Sub-Technical Working Group, was cited during the dissemination forum for the 2022 Philippine Tourism Industry Performance and Tourism Satellite Accounts held last July 5 at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City.

Javier presented the eTravel, which is a joint project of several government agencies, in the event.

The eTravel was launched earlier this year, and serves as the single data collection platform for arriving and departing passengers. It establishes an integrated border control, health surveillance, and economic data analysis.

It is a joint project of the agency with the DOT, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ), the Bureau of Customs (BOC), the Department of Health (DOH), the Department of Transportation (DOTr), the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the National Privacy Commission (NPC).
