It is so easy to criticise Government Departments, there are such high expectations, that if private business had to navigate the red tape they would give up in despair, but such is the cost of transparency. So it is really nice to give some Bureau Of Immigration Bouquets to them today.
Were you aware that the Bureau of Immigration has a Facebook page, full of up to date information, posted several times a day.
Ask A Question
Another service they offer is the ability to ask Immigration related questions and get answers back in English within 48 hours, often a lot sooner. The time of the week does not seem to be an issue either as I have had questions answered on a Sunday evening. To get this excellent service click here then click on the “message” button, this is situated on the bottom right of the “BAD GUYS OUT, GOOD GUYS IN” graphic. This opens up a dialogue box where you can ask your question and leave your email address for the reply.
Another great piece of information recently published is a list of all the BI offices with a list of the services each is able to provide. It may seem easier to just print this off, but my advice is to go to the Directory each time to ensure you have the latest update.
