MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Sunday announced that it distributed updated arrival and departure stamps at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) last December 29 and 30 to maintain the security and credibility of the country’s immigration process. 

BI commissioner Norman Tansingco said such developments  not only uphold the security of the immigration procedures but also prevent the fraudulent activities of “unauthorized entities attempting to replicate or misuse official immigration stamps.” 


“The updated arrival and departure stamps are a proactive measure to maintain the security and credibility of our immigration process, ensuring the safety of our borders while providing efficient service to travelers,” Tansingco said in a statement. 


He added that the stamps feature refreshed security qualities that “align with global best practices to ensure the authenticity and integrity of immigration stamps.”

The BI official likewise said it would roll out revised stamps in other international airports within the country by the first quarter of 2024.
