MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has prevented 49 foreign sex offenders from entering the country from January to April, Immigration Commissioner Norman Tansingco reported on Saturday.

He said the number was lower than the 64 passengers who were denied entry during the same period in 2023.

Of the 49 aliens barred, American nationals topped the list of excluded sex offenders, followed by the United Kingdom and Germany.
