The staff of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) were reminded to observe courtesy and patience when accommodating passengers in all airports across the country.

BI Deputy Commissioner Marc Red Mariñas issued the reminder following reports of BI staff being rude to passengers while conducting primary inspection at the airport.

Mariñas said the reminder goes out to all staff of the BI in all airports in the country particularly the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) which accommodates thousands of passengers per day.

Mariñas added that those in the frontline of BI must the “highest degree of constraint” towards misbehaving passengers but do not pose harm to public safety.

The deputy commissioner reminded the staff that disciplinary action will be taken against any staff who will be proven as impolite towards passengers.

Earlier, BI Commissioner Jaime Morente highlighted the reports of misbehavior of some immigration staff including the case of chess grandmaster Rogelio Antonio.

An immigration staff was reportedly rude towards Antonio after the latter interrupted the staff who was playing a mobile game. Antonio explained that he was only asking a question to the staff about the location of the refund office.

Mariñas, however, also reminded passengers to be patient during inspection and to not be rude to immigration staff as well.
