The main office of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) is operating on a skeleton workforce for three days until Wednesday, June 29.

BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said the adjustment follows the announced road closures and traffic rerouting by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) starting 12:01 a.m. of June 26, as part of security measures for the inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr.

He said venue for the inauguration is less than three kilometers from the BI main office affecting the transportation in the area.

Morente said the alternative work schedule is approved by the Civil Service Commission and assured assured that immigration services will remain continuous despite the schedule adjustment.

He added that the public may also transact business with any other BI field office to avoid traffic congestion and inconvenience.
