Manila, Philippines – Dumoble ang bilang ng international travelers sa huling araw ng 2021 at unang araw ng bagong taon, ayon sa Bureau of Immigration (BI).

Ayon kay Commissioner Jaime Morente, noong New Year’s Eve at New Year’s Day ay naitala ang 10,140 arrival habang 5,791 naman sa  two-day period noong 2020-2021.

“The trend shows a steady improvement in the number of travelers. While the figures remain low, this is a significant improvement from last year. We’re hoping to see better numbers this 2022.”

Sinabi rin ni BI Port Operations Division chief, lawyer Carlos Capulong na naging smooth ang kanilang operasyon.

“We ensured that our manpower was maximized as we anticipated an increase in travelers. We also ensured that our e-gates are serviceable to be able to ease lines and ensure social distancing.” RNT/FGDC
