Angst with IOs

I am horrified reading the stories people share on here. There seems to be a common theme. I have been in and out of the country for the past 16 years and never had a clue stories I read here now actually happened. I can feel the frustrations of many but can fully understand and support the need for tight screening. The embarassment people experienced due to being "offloaded" is nothing compared to the misery these guys may experience when they get to the foreign land. There are so many rogue travellers, most if not all of them have or will suffer ill-fate sooner if not later. If there is at least one person prevented from suffering this ill-fate, then these much hated immigration officers are serving their purpose which all of us must appreciate. We live in a cruel world. These officers are trying to be cruel to be kind. Unless one understands this fully, all they can remember is the cruelty they have experienced.

I do not know any Immigration Officer nor I have relatives or friends on this trade, but I am glad and thankful they are there. I am happy for my views to be challenged and will engage into an informed discussion if anyone wishes to.

Immigration

I was offloaded twice last year of November and now mag a attempt ulit ako for the 3rd time and my flight will gonna be on Jan 9. I only have return ticket, business permit since wala naman akong company ID kase self employed lang ako. Takot na ako at ngayon pa lang pag naiisip ko yong processo sa Immigration, abay parang mag cocolapse naku! Grabe yong trauma na inabot ko sa mga IO's. Dami ko na din nasayang na pera at panahon. Sana ngayon makakalusot na ako. Tas eto pa pala, yong passport ko mag black mark sa likod palatandaan na sa Naia 2 ako na hold. Diyos ko po!

Educational Tour

Good day , sir.

In behalf of all the Electronics Engineering students here in University of Southern Mindanao, Kabacan, North Cotabato, I, Epis, Ian, would like to inquire if the airport could help us by conducting a field study and seminar to your facilities for us to learn more about Navigational Aids and Devices. Since Nav-Aid is one of course here in USM, especially in Electronics Engineering department, we are really eager to learn and we could achieve this if you could lend us a hand to introduce this to us first-hand. Most of our lecturing here are purely theoretical. We want to experience the technicality side. We are currently studying on the aircrafts nav-aids e.g. ADF, VOR, DME, LRRA, GPWS, TCAS, and ILS. We are very happy if one of your personnel will respond to this comment of mine. Please contact me: 09283647680 to make this agreement formalize. God bless everyone.

Visit Visa/Tourist Visa

Tanong ko po, possible po ba ma offload kung nagpunta ako nang dubai as visit visa trabaho ako dun nang dalawang taon tapos umuwi ako dito sa pinas para magcelebrate nang holiday. Tapos babalik sana ako ulit sa katapusan nang december as visit visa ulit sa dubai. PEro sponsored naman po ako nang nanay ko. Kaso lang baka ma question ang passport ko ng IO na bakit maraming tatak nang exit at residence visa sa passport na nagtrabaho ako dun. Advise naman please. Thank u!

NAIA TERMINAL 3

hello. magbibiyahe ako this December to HK, I hope hindi ako iinterogate masyado ng IO kasi may legit contract naman ako.

actually palagay ko naman sumusunod lang sila sa memorandum. ang kalampagin ninyo ay yung matataas na opisyal na siyang rason kaya naghihigpit ang IO natin.

parang experience ko sa DFA yan nung nagpapassport ako. dahil wala ako govt ID, hindi ako pumasa sa processor sa 1st attempt. 2nd attempt, ibang branch naman, pumasa yun ID ko na student permit from LTO pero kinwestyon yun pangalan ko sa NSO kasi wala ako middle name kasi illegitimate child ako. kesyo ipa correct ko raw. umabot ako sa Manila City Hall at NSO Main Office, sabi doon bawal daw lagyan yun name ko ng middle name kasi walang father at single ang mother ko. sinabi pa nun atty., ang tanga naman nung DFA officer na yun, binigyan ako ng slip isang memorandum na nagbabawal na lagyan ng middle name ang pangalan ko. pero sa sobrang frustrate ko ng panahong iyon naisipan ko idaan sa agency yung pagkuha ko ng passport. 3rd attempt, agency ako nagpapassport, sa main office ng DFA ako dinala at inaccomodate and voila. wala masyado arte, diretso hanggang pagkuha ng bio. asikasong asikaso kami.

bakit naghigpit sa pagkuha ng passport? bakit kailangan ng govt ID, eh paano yun mga unemployed na hindi maka SSS hindi pa naissuehan ng Voter ID pero nagka chance magtrabaho abroad? paano sila?

KASALANAN YUN NG MGA HAYUP NA GUMAGAMIT NG PEKENG IDENTITY PARA MAGKAPASPORT.

Parang ganoon din yun diyan sa airport. I suggest na kung mamamasyal kayo, 90% chances na maooffload lalo kng kaduda duda o first timer ka. Idaan niyo na lang sa agency, may mga tour package naman na promo at masisiguro pa na makakaalis ka. Yun lola ko nung buhay pa, may travel agency na USA ang destination, wala ni isang client ang nadenied at na offload lahat successful. sayang patay na lola ko kaya wala na ako koneksyon, sa HK na lang ako pupunta.

KASALANAN ITO NG MGA HAYOP NA GINAGAMIT ANG TOURIST VISA PARA MAGKATRABAHO ABROAD.

LAHAT NG SOBRA AY MALI. MAY KASALANAN DITO ANG MGA PASAWAY NA KABABAYAN NATIN KAYA ANG NAGDURUSA AY MGA KABABAYAN NATING LEGIT ANG DOKUMENTO AT TUWID NA MGA TAO.

HINDI NIYO NAPAPANSIN? KUNG SINO PA YUN MANDURUGAS SILA PA YUN NAKAKALUSOT. CRAP.

Investigation

Bakit kailangang imbestigahan ang passenger na nahulihan ng isang bala? Aanhin nya ang isang bala kung wala namang baril? bakit kailangan imbestigahan ang bala kung pwede pang pumutok? Tapos kakasuhan nila ang mga pasahero kahit inosente sila. Pag nakasuhan ka, hinding hindi ka na makkpag abroad dahil may criminal record ka na. Its all non-sense at katangahan ito. Alam na alam nating lahat na marami ang nabibiktima ng tanim bala sa NAIA. Ang dapat imbestigahan ay ang mga empleyado sa NAIA, sila ang ugat ng lahat ng kawalanghiyaan dito. Imbes na tulungan nila ang kapwa pinoy, sila pa ang mangwawalang hiya. Dapat sakanila ikinukulong ng habang buhay without parole. Nakakaperwisyo at nakakahiya sila sa buong mundo pati na ang ating mga imbestigador, ubd ng tatanga, parang may prinoptotektahan pa ata at kung ano-ano lang para lang masabi may imbestigasyon silang ginagawa.

Picture of

Question for everybody.

Ano ang reason kung bakit ginagawa ng empleyado ng NAIA ang pag offload ng Immigration Dumb Shit Fuckers and tanim bala that also ends up offloading passengers? May napapala ba sila dito? Pwede bang irefund ang pera na ibinayad mo sa travel tax if ever maoffload ka? If yes then one thing came out in my mind with the very high possibility na ito ang reason. Kung maoffload ka, hindi mo na magagawang irefund pa ang ibinayad mo sa travel tax sa sobrang kahihiyan, trauma, depression, anger at lahat ng kabwisitang inabot mo sakanila. Ang mga gagong IO pwede ka nila offload kahit wala silang proof, basta natipuhan ka nilang walanghiyain. Ang security officers using the tactic "tanim bala" para maoffload ka. So both has the chance to get money. How? Sa travel tax, pwede naman nila palabasin, irenefund ng passenger un. Kung may form naman, kaya nilang sulatan at palabasin na ikaw nagfill up ng form even though hindi mo un penmanship. Wala naman makkalam na passengers nun. Lahat sila may part to offload and lahat sila may share sa pera kaya nga kahit magreklamo ka na offloaded ka, walang ppansin sayo at walang mangyayari kundi puro sakit lang ng ulo aabutin mo. Magtatakipan sila at hindi ka nila eentertainin. Sasabihin lang sayo ggwa sila ng report at review or magreklamo ka sa kung saang lupalop pero 100% wag ka na umasa, walang magyayari. In short both in Immigration at security personels has their part of share.

Tanong lng po

I'm traveling to Cambodia on the 29th and will be meeting up with my boyfriend for the first time! We've been talking for a year and it's our first time to meet. I have my requirements ready with me. Round trip tix, hotel voucher, passport, company ID, COE, pocket money. I used his CC to book so i have with me too a photocopy of his CC and drivers license. I will be printing out our conversations too to prove that our relationship is legit and screenshots of me and him on skype. What else do i need to avoid getting offloaded? Oh and also I'd like to ask about the CFO. Do I need it? All i know that it's only for those couples who are getting married? Anyone could help me with this? TIA

To all airport staff maghigpit sa mga dayuhan hindi sa mga kapwa filipino or ofw na magtrarabaho sa ibang bansa... ano kaya ang feeling nyo kung kayo ang paghigpitan ng mga dayuhan sa ibang bansa at kung kayo na mismo ang mag travel. Be professional sa mga trabaho nyo! hindi yung kapwa filipino ang iniisahan nyo at huthutan.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT

i had been offloaded at naia 1, that was 2011 . the next day after my scheduled flight, i booked another ticket and successfully passed the IO officer who interviewed me. the offloading experience was very traumatic. the IO really ensured that i would be offloaded. She was very, very, very arrogant. the interview took a long time so when I got to the gate, the usherette said that the plane had already took off.

Now, I am presuming that I will experience the same thing AGAIN probably by the end of the month. I just came back from the UAE last Oct5. I need to go back there to fix my wedding with my Egyptian fiance. I already have a Marriage license from our embassy in Abu Dhabi which will actually expire on Dec7. I am now concerned about my cancelled visa status because I resigned from my job there. So, presumably, the IO will suspect I could be a victim of human trafficking or what-not.

Gagong Immigration Officer - MCM Rosales!

My flight to Bangkok was this morning, OFFLOADED!

Why? According to immigration officer MCM Rosales ng terminal 3 parang di daw ako magtu-tour. Baka daw human trafficking!

I have my return tickets. Accommodation for my whole stay in Bangkok. Pocket money in US dollars! Tapos hindi tourist!? Pati itinerary ko for the trip nabigay ko without batting an eyelash dahil months kong pinlano tong trip na to.

Hiningan pa ako ng proof of income. Pinakita ko. Sabi ba naman sakin nyang lecheng MCM Rosales na yan, "wag mo ko pakitaan ng sweldo". E di ba sabi mo kailangan mo ng proof of income, e ayan na nga eh. Gago ka pala e!

This is not my first time to travel abroad. I've been to a first world country and stayed there for months tapos pagbibintangan nya kong hindi tourist?!? The fuck!

Nag-consult na ko sa legal affairs office at pwede daw ireklamo yang mga putang inang yan sa civil service commission para mawalan ng trabaho yang mga patay gutom na yan! Kaya sa mga winalanghiya ng immigration officers jan, send an affidavit of complaint sa ola@webmail.csc.gov.ph. Kailangan lang ng complete name ng tarantadong immigration officer. Anyone who can help me find the first name ng tarantadong MCM Rosales na yan, it will be really appreciated. Hustisya!

Mga putna inang Immigration Officers at bulok na NAIA

I have a girlfriend got offloaded sa NAIA terminal 2. My sister bought the tickets 4 months before our flight to Singapore. After everything we did to get her passport ready and the money we spent in everything, all went well and we made it just in time to get her passport. We were excited to go to Universal studios and all but sadly it didnt came true because of the putang unang babaeng IO na yan, ang kapal ng pagmumukha nya, kinwestyon pa na kung talaga daw bang kami. Humingi pa ng pictures namin at questions related sa relasyon namin. Kung tutuusin, ano naman ang konek? In short ubod ng tangang bobo itong IO na ito at ang banat pa, hindi daw pwedeng isponsor ang hindi kamag- anak. So kung mapatunayan nya bang kami nga ppyagan nya parin ba? Malamang hindi. Ubod ng kitid ng utak nitong mga IO na ito at she was insisting na sabihin ng gf ko na magaaply sha abroad. Dahil ang sabi, ang paraan daw para makaalis sha is mag- apply sha abroad. Mga gagong tarantado talaga mga hayop na IO na yan. At kung sino man ang nakaisip nyang memorandum na bawal isponsor ang d kamag-anak, ubod ka ng tanga hayop ka. Hindi lahat ng taong gustong mag travel at mag enjoy may pera. Kadalasan libre lang ng mga kaibigan. Kayo wala kayong problema dahil mga corrupt at ganid kayo sa pera. Katarantaduhan yang memorandum na yan. Eto pa, recently balik abroad ate and nanay ko na senior citizen na, pinabili pa sila ng ticket for my mom pabalik para lang makaalis. Tapos nagkamali pa sila ng pangalan ilinagay sa ticket. Ang sabi mairrefund daw un pagdating nila sa airport sa abroad pero wala, hindi totoo. Kung may utak talaga tong mga to sa immigration, satingin ba nila mag ttrabaho ang nanay ko na 60+ at mag ttnt? Aba, may sayad ka gago ka dapat wala ka jan dahil ubod ka ng tanga at halatang pamemera yan at ginagamit nyo position nyo para makaperwisyo ng iba. Habang tumatagal sa ikli ng panahon nitong year 2015, ang dami na reklamo at batikos ng taong bayan sa NAIA na yan. Kung may pulitikong nakkbasa nito, tumigil muna kayo sa pangangampanya nyo at tutukan nyo itong problemang ito. Ang sarap nyo ibangag sa pader hanggang mabasag ang mga bungo nyo. Hindi namin nakuha pangalan ng putang inang babaeng IO na yan. Tinawagan din ng gf ko ang main office nila pero walang gustong makipag usap. Nagtuturuan at nagtatakipan silang lahat sa kawalang hiyaan nila. Yan ba ang costumer service saatin? Walang kwenta, wala kang mapapala at puro kaputang inahan lang nila mapapala mo. Tapos eto pa may news sa tv na naglalagay sila ng bala sa bagahe at bag ng mga pasahero. Pinoy umaksyon ka at hindi puro suporta sa pangangampanya ang inaatupag mo!!!

Travel to Dubai

Tinanong ko din ung papuntang Dubai. Marami daw talaga pumupunta ng Dubai to look for work. Based on their records, almost lahat di bumabalik. Either sponsored by kamag anak o kaya friend, ganun ang nangyayari. So, humihigpit sila. Dapat macomply mo lahat documents and mapatunayan mo na kamag anak mo pupuntahan mo. Alam naman nila na work ang purpose so ang sa kanila lang, at least kamag anak mo pupuntahan mo. Hope this helps. Thank you ;)

Reasons for offloading

Hi All, I have a friend who works in BI at ang sabi niya. They are just following what is mandated to them at may memorandum nga talaga na galing sa DOJ about the requirements before ka makaalis. They do this daw because marami daw talaga nakaalis before as tourist pero hindi na bumalik ng bansa and it's a violation of Migrant Workers Act na magtrabaho sa ibang bansa without securing clearance from POEA. Sobrang dami daw talaga nagsisinungaling at nahuhulihan nila ng working visa. So one way na maregulate nila to at malaman ung purpose mo is through interview and additional documents.

@how to remove my offload record/offloading

once offloaded po my record na sila, pgkaka alam ko mawawala lng yan pag naka pag travel ka successfully. na offload dn ako dati, second attempt ko naka alis na po ako ginawa ko lahat nung hiningi nlang docs binigay ko pero umabot pa akong 2nd intervew, my 3rd travel wala na, mabilis na ang stamping pati last ko na travel. kung ano po yung binigay nla sa inyo na requirements, i suggest i prepare mo lahat tapos sa susunod mo na alis, prepare mo na yun lahat din just in case hingan ka ulit.

@DUBAI

1st travel nyo po ba ang dubai? or my experience na po kayo maka pag travel dati outside phil? ang 3 months stay po kasi dun red flag automatic yun s kanila. as much as possible kung tourist ka lng dapat d katagal ang stay. another red flag is sinabi mo ng resign ka, so automatic iisipin nila mg a-apply ka dun ng work. tapos 3 months stay pa. strict nga po sila pag sg/kl/thailand or yung ibang countries na walang visa kung d complete yun docs to prove na tourist lng. lalo na po pag dubai.

Must-read (dubai)

I've been denied by IO, I will rephrase it para mas embarrassing, I was offloaded last august 4, kasama ko tito ko na sya lahat gumastos, biruin mo yun umuwi lang talga siya dto sa pilipinas galing pang dubai para lang sunduin ako to avoid this "offload shit" na to, BIG WORD talaga tong "offload" na to. Not to brag, mapera at malaki sahod nya sa dubai and I know he can take care of what I need and what I want. Well I wanna go to dubai just to travel, to enjoy, relax ba!! 3 months yung visa ko i mean 90 days i think red flag yun sa mga IO, nagtanung yung respectable IO kung bakit matagal, sabi ko, he will teach how to manage a business, leadership etc since we're planning to make a business plan it will take long, then sabi ng IO "ganun katagal"? what the heck, man?? this IO dont know shit about business. Then IO asked about my education, fortunately naka grad namn ako ng college, still not enough! and IO asked about my occupation, i told her, i resigned since d ako pinayagan mag leave ng matagal, still not a good reason, then finally naka hugot ng dahilan tong si IO para ma offload ako sabi nya since d ko daw kamag anak yung pupuntahan ko d nya daw ako pasasakayin (she meant papupuntahin sa dubai), sabi nya nung July lang daw yun nag start na hanggang first degree lang daw,, shtt!! talga, i mean I packed my bags, I wasted a lot of money, time and effort, nakapag yabang na ko sa mga friends ko na mag a-out of the country ako then offload? yung tito ko wala nagawa kundi pakalmahin ako, I was so disappointed that time, parang nawala ng yung pag mamahal ko sa bansang pilipinas dahil sa offload na yan. Sa sobrang disappointed ko d ko na pina refund yung terminal fee na 1600 wala na ko pakealam dun! Madami na offload that time, and I had a courage to talk to one of them na ka age ko, sabi nung girl almost 50,000 nagastos nya just to travel to dubai then offload?? saan ang hustisya! sabi sakin basta mag eenglish english at konting pasosyal with confidence pag sumagot sa tanung IO ok na daw yun, e parang hindi naman,ang ayos ng pananmit ko i mean napaka professional ng suot ko and english english with accent no problem sakin call center agent ako dati, pero d parin sapat! so Okay di pa tapos kwento ko, so stay still. after 1 month ng maoffload ako, nag kwento yung Mother ko na yung kumare nya PUMUNTA NG DUBAI NA GAMIT E TOURIST VISA LANG DIN NMAN PARA MAG WORK AS DH, SABI NG MOMMY SAKIN, MAY AGENCY DAW NA TUMUTULONG SA KANILA PARA HINDI HARANGIN SA IMMIGRATION. ASAAN ANG HUSTISYA HUH? ako, tayo na mag to-tourist lang na walang intensyong mangamuhan d nkapalag sa immig tapos sya GANUN GANUN LANG NAKAALIS AGAD!!! HUSTISYA??

re: how to remove my offload record/offloading

Reply to @crossborder:

I was offloaded last sept. 23 2015. I want to travel in korea. Some reason the officer offloaded me. Now i want to try again and change my booking and lessen the days that i will stay. Cause the officer said i dont have the capacity to support my travel. Is it possible? And does the offloading record will affect?

RUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL IMMIGRATION OFFICER

On 17 July an IO did not allow my mother to travel to Singapore. I understand that she was just doing her job but she was rude. And are they even allowed to have a chewing gum on their mouth while working? She was a boyish female officer. I was not able to get her name but I can remember her rude and straight up unprofessional face! May karma Miss!

Right to travel

"...As to liberty of travel, under the 1987 law, it may be impaired even without a court order, but the appropriate executive officer is not armed with arbitrary discretion to impose limitations. He can impose limits only on the basis of “national security, public safety, or public health” and “as may be provided by law,” a limitive phrase which had disappeared from the less libertarian 1973 text." - Bernas. what is now the connection of your trip to national security, to public health, or to public safety? Wala! so ano ang connection ng national security, public health or public safety kung mag hahanap ka ng work sa ibang bansa? Wala! eh bakit ginagawa ng government natin ito? Dictador kasi! paki alamero sa buhay ng may buhay! MRT nga d niyo ma ayos ayos buhay pa namin pakiki alaman ng BI!

"Indiscriminate" offloading of BI violation of Constitutiona

"Bureau of Immigration (BI) – shall strictly administer and enforce immigration and alien administration laws. It shall adopt measures for the apprehension of suspected traffickers both at the place of arrival and departure and shall ensure compliance by the Filipino fiancés/fiancées and spouses of foreign nationals with the guidance and counseling requirement as provided for in this Act." paki basa lang po. ito yung nasa anti-human trafficking act. wala pong naka lagay sa batas na ang BI any puedeng mag offload ng pasahero. Harap harapan at garapalang violation ng ating Constitution! Please if possible lets us tell our relatives & friends who are living outside our country NOT to vote for the LP & De Lima! They are Number 1 violators of our Constitutional guaranteed right to travel! LET US MAKE OUR RIGHT TO TRAVEL A POLITICAL ISSUES! baka may makinig na matinong pulitiko! may GOD bless us all! GOD bless the Philippines!

CUSTOMER Service is Very bad at this airport.

Staff are not accommodating, They are also not calibrated on their rules and regulations.I hope they properly train their staff , Train them about good customer service , especially the staff ( the old guy ) who checks luggage xray - Very RUDE!!!!!. Also train them to treat people equally, they treat foreigners better than filipinos, parepareho lahat nagbabayad ng terminal fee niyo . Please be considerate & courteous and helpful to others, lalo na sa mga kapwa nila Pilipino na di alam ang gagawin sa airport or mga 1st timers . Ive been to other airports and customer service is good.

Sana may suggestion box or feedback box - or customer service survey sa airport na ito..

Occupation - none: so what? freakin 3rd World Country!

So what if a traveler has no occupation? If that traveler is living on interest - why would she show her bank acct? daig pa ng BI ang AMLAC w/c needs a court order! Who cares where she/he gets $$$? is there anything written in our constitution or law w/c says that a person ought to have an occupation before she can travel? 3 things w/c limits ur right to travel a) national security, b) public safety, c) public health. What is now the connection between having no occupation & d national security of the Philippines, no occupation & d public safety of the Philippines, no occupation & d public health of the Philippines - mind you - it's NOT a persons health or well being but the nation as a whole!

What guidelines/requirements?

why does the BI/IO penalize Filipino travelers? The following are the only documents a Filipino Tourist (no matter what kind of tourist) need to bring: a) valid passport; b) a visa when needed; c)round trip ticket! the best way to deal with it is just to sue them civilly, administratively, & may be criminally. go to the nearest IBP chapter & ask for legal assistance or to the PAO. w/ due respect to the Human Rights Commission Kuno - go to naia look how d BI screws the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS of Filipino Travelers!

For as long as your travel documents ( passport, visa, plane tickets) are valid Only our courts can prevent a Filipino from travelling! The IO/BI has NO POWER under the law to prevent a Filipino from travelling out of the country! However, I think we're in North Korea w/ the way our government violates our Constitutional guaranteed rights!
