Bureau of Immigration Warns Public Against Fake eTravel Site


The Bureau of Immigration (BI) warned the public to be cautious against websites pretending to be the agency’s eTravel site.

“We urge the public to be vigilant and exercise caution online. There are numerous scams on the internet, and the false use of e-travel credentials to steal data and trick people into sending payment pops up every now and then,” said BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco.

Tansingco advised the public to immediately report suspicious or fraudulent websites to the Cybercrime Investigation and Coordinating Center (CICC).

The BI spokesperson warned that the public should remain vigilant of scam websites that might surface during the upcoming long weekend and holiday season. He expressed concern over reports of people falling prey to fraudulent sites illegally demanding payment for using the e-travel service.

The Bureau of Immigration strongly recommends all travelers use the legitimate eTravel website for seamless processing of their immigration requirements, which is free of charge. 

The platform can be accessed through Passengers must complete the online form 72 hours before arrival or departure.
