Moving within the Philippines
« on: July 25, 2009, 03:42:53 PM »
I have a 13A ACR-I card and recently moved to a new province. Does anyone know if there is a requirement to let Immigration know of your new address immediately? Or can you just wait until the annual reporting in Jan-Feb? I did notify the BI office where I was that I was moving; and they gave me a letter for the BI office closest to where I moved. But I cant remember if I need to report in now or just wait. Thanks

I think it would be a good idea to go to the new BI office. Your I-card will still have your old address and they may want to change it.

I found this on the Philippine Bureau of Immigration Site, but didn\'t find the Change of Address Form:

Address

   1. Duly filled-up form for Change of Address

   2. Submit application with the required documents for evaluation, assessment of fees and OPS issuance at Counter 36, G/F CCPF Bldg.

   3. For payment of fees, proceed to the Cashier Counters 1 to 7, G/F BI Main Bldg.

   4. For recommendation of the Registration Officer (RO)/implementation of the requested amendment/s, proceed to Counter 42, G/F CCPF Bldg.
