THE Bureau of Immigration (BI) is set to inaugurate its new office located in a mall in Makati City.
BI Makati Chief Maria Rhodora Abrazaldo announced the transfer of the BI Makati Extension Office from its old location along J.P. Rizal Avenue to the 5th level of the Ayala Circuit Mall starting April 25 (Monday).
The said extension office caters to the Top 1000 corporations in the Philippines and has consistently been one of the top performing BI offices in the past years.
According to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente, the transfer is very timely, as they are expecting the business sector to once again flourish, following the country’s reopening of its borders.
“Foreign investors are expected to return now that we are transitioning to the new normal,” said Morente. “Hence we see the move to a bigger office as a necessary step to provide better service,” he added.
Apart from the Makati Office, the new BI Main Office located along the Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard is expected to be opened soon.
