18BGINDIAN_PASSPOR_1398299fImmigration has, again, increased its efforts to track down foreigners that have not registered for their Foreign National Certificates (Alien ID)/ found holding EXPIRED Alien ID Cards. This is part of a nationwide scheme to increase security in the country. Foreigners will be stopped at random in public places and business premises will also be visited. Foreigners found with no proof of registration (Waiting Card)/ found with expired Alien ID’s will be subject to hefty fines and/ or arrest.

Carry your Alien ID Card or Waiting Card with you at all times. In the likely case that your Immigration Agent is holding your original Waiting Card in order to follow up on your Alien ID Card, walk around with a CLEAR photocopy of the Waiting Card as well as a CLEAR copy of the receipt for payment of Registration.

Have a legal Tuesday
