BI now hiring more personnel for airport lanes

MANILA — The Bureau of Immigration is hiring more employees to address its lack of manpower which stemmed from the nonpayment of overtime pay in the past months.

The agency recently announced 49 job vacancies on its website,, to encourage prospective job seekers to apply.

In an interview with church-run Radio Veritas, BI spokesperson Antonette Mangrobang, she said they have been following a hiring process to fill up the vacancies.

“There is a hiring process. We know that it takes a while, but this is a long-term solution for our manpower crisis,” she said.

Earlier this year, massive queues have plagued empty immigration counters at the airport.

This is because some employees have resorted to filing leaves or even resignations because of the nonpayment of their overtime work.

This stemmed from President Duterte’s veto of the use of the BI’s express lane fees, in the past 30 years, for the payment of the overtime pay of immigration officers.

Among the job vacancies posted in the BI’s website are for the positions of chief immigration officer, supervising immigration officer, senior immigration officer, immigration officers and assistants.

An entry level immigration officer is ranked salary grade 11, which has a monthly salary of around P19,000./
