ADVISORY No. 19-2021

25 August 2021

BI: ALIEN IMMIGRANTS WITH EXPIRED ACR-I CARDS NOW ALLOWED ENTRY INTO THE PHILIPPINES

The Philippine Consulate General would like to inform the public that arriving alien immigrants with permanent resident visas but holding expired alien certificate of registration identity cards (ACR I-card) will now be allowed to enter the Philippines as long as they could present valid reentry permits.

Based on the latest directive of the Bureau of Immigration, expired reentry permits and special return certificates may now be renewed upon arrival at the airport before arriving aliens clear immigration.

However, arriving aliens who are holders of non-immigrant visas will be required to present valid ACR-I cards before they could be allowed entry.

For further inquiries, ACR-I card holders may directly contact the Bureau of Immigration:
