From: <philippineembassy>

Isang Pilipina ang na-aresto noong nakaraang linggo sa paliparan ng Baiyun sa Guangzhou dahil sa hinihinalang drug smuggling. Natagpuan ang 1,996 na gramo ng droga sa isang pakete na nakatago sa kanyang bagahe. Ayon sa batas ng Tsina, ang isang taong nahuli na may dala o nag-traffic ng ilegal na droga na hindi kulang sa 50 gramo ay maaaring masentensyahan ng kamatayan kapag napatunayang nagkasala.

Nakapanghihinayang at nakalulungkot na mayroon na naming naaresto sa kabila ng puspusan at patuloy na paunawa at babala ng ating pamahalaan tungkol sa panganib ng pag-dala ng ilegal na droga sa Tsina, kasama na ang pagpa-pataw ng sentensya ng kamatayan.

Ang Pilipinang na-aresto ay dating guro sa probinsya ng Guangdong na ginawaran ng alien employment permit ng pamahalaang Tsino. Ang pagkaka-sangkot niya sa drug trafficking ay maaaring isang hudyat ng bagong stratehiya ng mga sindikato sa droga – ang pag-gamit ng mga propesyonal o mga lehitimong manggagawa sa Tsina at sa ibang bansa bilang mga drug couriers. Mas madaling mapatunayan ang kakayahan ng mga taong ito na mag-lakbay (anyo, asal, kasalukuyang trabaho, kakayahang pinansyal, atbp.) at maging lehitimong turista. Iba na ito sa mga naunang ginamit bilang drug couriers (mga walang trabaho [kadalasan mga babae], na na-akit sa posibilidad ng kabuhayan, libreng paglalakbay at/o trabaho sa ibang bansa).

Muling nananawagan ang ating pamahalaan sa lahat ng Pilipino na mag-ingat sa mga kahina-hinalang anyaya ng pagla-lakbay at trabaho sa ibang bansa, pag-tanggap ng mga paketeng ipina-padala ng mga taong hindi nila lubos na kilala na para sa mga tao na hindi rin lubos na kilala sa kanilang destinasyon, at/o ang pag-tanggap ng bagahe na hindi kayo ang mismong nag-ayos o nag-impake.

Bagama't ginagawa ng mga pasuguan at konsulado ang lahat ng posible at kailangang tulong na naa-ayon sa batas upang matulungan ang mga OFWs na naha-harap sa ganitong sitwasyon, may limitasyon ang pamahalaan sa tulong na kanyang naibi-bigay kapag ang isang Pilipino ay natagpuang may dalang ilegal na droga at inaresto, kinasuhan at napatunayang nagkasala ng drug trafficking, at napatawan ng karampatang hatol. Samakatuwid, pangunahing responsibilidad ng bawat Pilipino ang tumanggi sa pag-gamit sa kanya bilang isang drug courier.

Nais hingin ng Pasuguan ng Pilipinas sa Beijng ang tulong ng Filipino community laban sa drug trafficking. Kung maaari lamang na ipadala ang paunawang ito sa inyong mga kamag-anak at mga kaibigan sa Pilipinas, sa Tsina, at sa iba pang lugar. Sa tulong ninyo, maaari nating iwasan, o di kaya tuluyang wakasan, ang pag-gamit sa mga Pilipino bilang mga drug couriers.

Salamat Po

Always
Winston

Advisory on the use of the initials PH and PHL

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 2:36 philippineembassy

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) developed the ISO 3166-1 codes, which assigned two- and three-letter codes for member countries. This code is most readily seen in international sporting events such as the Olympics and the Asian Games.

As a member of the ISO, the Philippines has been assigned the codes PH and PHL. Following the ISO code, the initials RP (popularly referring to the Republic of the Philippines ) is not in accordance with ISO 3166-1 and is not recognized as the initials referring to the Philippines .

Government agencies and the private sector, including media institutions, have started to use the new codes. The community is, therefore, encouraged to use the initials PH and PHL when referring to the Philippines .

The Philippine Bureau of Immigration has issued Memorandum Order No. RPL-10-013, dated 11 November 2010, introducing new procedures on the Waiver of Exclusion Ground (WEG). The WEG may now be applied for before or upon arrival in the Philippines.



As a rule, minors under 15 years of age and unaccompanied by or not joining a parent in the Philippines are generally excluded from entering Philippine ports of entry. This includes children who arrive individually or in groups.



To avoid exclusion from entry before arrival at Philippine ports, the following procedures must be followed:



1. The minor's guardian or legal representative shall notify the Commissioner of Immigration in writing of intent to travel to the Philippines at least seventy-two (72) hours before arrival in the Philippines.



2. The letter of intent shall include a request for the minor's waiver of exclusion and the relinquishment of exclusion fees. Copies of the minor's valid passport, visa (if required), return ticket and invitation from a parent or sponsoring entity shall also be attached.



3. If there is merit in the request, the Commissioner of Immigration shall issue an Order that waives the minor's exclusion. The Order may also waive the exclusion fees; otherwise, a waiver fee of Philippine Pesos 3,120 shall be imposed. The minor's guardian or legal representative shall be given copies of this Order.



4. The Commissioner of Immigration shall send a copy of the Order to the Immigration Duty Supervisors (IDS) at the port of entry. This Order shall waive the minor's exclusion and, if allowed, also the fees' waiver.



To avoid exclusion from entry of minors who arrive at Philippine ports without prior notice to the Commissioner of Immigration:



1. The minor's guardian or legal representative presents copies of the minor's passport and attaches these to the duly accomplished Waiver of Exclusion (WE) forms obtained from the IDS at the port of entry.



2. After determining that the duly accomplished WE forms are in order, the IDS shall note "Approved for Payment" and direct the minor's guardian or legal representative to pay a waiver fee of Philippine Pesos 3,120 for each unaccompanied minor. Payment shall be made to an authorized cashier at the port of entry. The cashier shall retain a copy of the WE forms.



3. After payment, the minor's guardian or legal representative shall present the WE forms' official receipt of payment to the IDS. (The IDS shall note the serial number of the official receipt and the total number of minors covered by the receipt.)



4. The IDS shall direct an Immigration Officer (IO) to admit the minor, after noting the official receipt's serial number below the admission stamp and cancelling the receipts.



5. The IO detaches the copy of the WE forms and retains a copy of the minor's passport for the Bureau of Immigration's database.

The Philippine Embassy will soon accept applications for the e-Passport, which will replace the Machine Readable Passport (MRP). Application for MRPs will no longer be accepted once the Embassy starts accepting applications for the e-Passport.



In this regard, the Embassy would like to inform the community of the following important tips in preparation for the implementation of e-Passport.



1. Processing of the e-Passport will take at least six (6) weeks, as processing will be done in Manila. In this regard, you are advised to renew passports early, at least six (6) months before the passport's expiry date in order to avoid problems form late application of an e-Passport.



2. The basic requirement for the e-Passport are as follows:

· Personal appearance of the applicant;

· Duly accomplished passport application form;

· Original and photocopy of passport's personal data page (for renewals)

· Cash payments of RMB 600, effective upon start of acceptance of e-Passport applications;

· Replacement fee of RMB 1,500 for lost passports; additional payment of RMB 250 for a notarized affidavit of lost passport;

· Photo capturing is done inside the e-Passport enrollment section of the Embassy. There is no need for the applicants to bring with them their passport photos. Applicants should be in decent attire, preferably shirts with collar.



3. Additional requirements for first-time applicant born in China, for seafarer, for wives who wish to adopt their husband's surname, and in case of lost passport are the same as those for MRP and MRRP.





4. Claiming of e-Passports will follow the procedure for claiming MRPs, i.e., applicants may choose to claim their passports personally or may choose to have them sent by mail.





Advice on the exact date of implementation of the e-Passport at this Embassy will be issued in due course.

On 25 February 2011, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution, with the theme "Tatak Edsa 25: Pilipino Ako. Ako ang Lakas ng Pagbabago".



Sa ika-25 taong anibersaryo ng People Power Revolution, muli nating sariwain ang diwa ng EDSA – ang dangal ng pagiging Pilipino na may tiwala sa sarili at may kamalayan sa kanyang mga responsibilidad sa sarili at sa bayan, na kumakatawan sa makabuluhang pagbabago, at may kakayahang itaguyod ang pag-unlad ng bayan.



Inaanyayahan ang lahat sa isang programa sa Pasuguan ng Pilipinas sa Beijing. Mag-uumpisa ang programa sa ganap na ika-4 ng hapon. Ang pangunahing bahagi ng programa ay ang pagtatanghal ng dokumentaryong pinamagatang "EDSA: The World Remembers". Ito ay susundan ng isang maikling talakayan at palitan ng pananaw tungkol sa kahulugan ng EDSA sa atin bilang Pilipino at bilang mamamayan ng mundo. Magsasalu-salo tayo sa isang merienda cena pagkatapos nito.



Mangyari lamang na ipaalam sa Pasuguan ang inyong pagdalo sa pagdiriwang na ito. Tawagan ang telepono bilang 6532-1872 at hanapin si Wendy Cruz o si Edwin Magsakay. Maaari ding ipaalam ang inyong pagdalo sa pamamagitan ng text sa 13911180495 o email sa philemb_beijing@yahoo.com.

Mangyari lamang na ipaalam sa Pasuguan ang inyong pagdalo sa pagdiriwang na ito. Tawagan ang telepono bilang 6532-1872 at hanapin si Wendy Cruz o si Edwin Magsakay. Maaari ding ipaalam ang inyong pagdalo sa pamamagitan ng text sa 13911180495 o sa email philemb_beijing@yahoo.com.

Ang ating salo-salo ay gaganapin sa Linggo, ika-12 ng Hunyo mula alas-2 hanggang alas-5 ng hapon sa Embahada ng Pilipinas. Mayroong mga sari-saring pagkaing Pinoy na mabibili at mga musika na iparirinig ang ating mga paboritong mangangantang Pinoy.

Sumang-ayon ang Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau (PSB) sa panawagan ng Pasuguan ng Pilipinas na bigyan ng pagsasaalang-alang sa mga kahirapan na nararanasan ng mga overstaying na Pilipino sa Beijing.



Sa ganang ito, sumang-ayon ang PSB na iurong ang parusang detensyon para sa mga Pilipinong kusang-loob na susuko sa PSB bago mag ika-30 ng Hunyo 2011. Alalahanin din ang mga sumusunod na patnubay:



1. Ang parusang detensyon ang tanging saklaw ng pag-urong na ito.

2. Hindi kasama sa pag-urong ang imbestigasyon ng kaso, ang bayad na RMB 5,000 na overstaying fee, at ang bayad na RMB 160 na exit visa fee.

3. Responsibilidad rin ng overstaying na Pilipino ang pagbili ng tiket ng eroplano pabalik sa Pilipinas.

4. Maaaring bigyan ng Travel Document ang mga Pilipinong wala ng saysay ang pasaporte.

5. Ang mga kahilingan para sa tulong pinansyal tulad ng pagbayad ng overstaying fee, tiket sa eroplano, atbp., ay maaaring gawin sa pamamagitan ng sinumpaang salaysay, at susuriin ito bawat kaso. Sa mga nais isalaysay ang detalye ng kanilang kaso, maaari ding gawin ito sa isang sinumpaang salaysay.

6. Doon sa mga nais makinabang sa pagkakataong ito, maaari lamang na bumisita sa Pasuguan bago tumuloy sa PSB.



Muling pinapa-alala na ang mga overstaying na Pilipino na kusang-loob na susuko sa PSB bago mag ika-30 ng Hunyo 2011 ay hindi papatawan ng parusang detensyon. Ang mga mahuhuli ng PSB na overstaying na Pilipino ay papatawan pa rin ng parusang detensyon, kasama na ang pag-bayad ng overstaying fee at exit visa fee. Hinihikayat ng Pasuguan ang lahat ng overstaying na mga Pilipino na makinabang sa palugit na ito upang maibsan ang kanilang suliraning imigrasyon sa Beijing .



Para sa karagdagang katanungan, paglilinaw at impormasyon, tumawag sa Assistance to Nationals (ATN) hotline sa telepono bilang 13911180495 o sa Pasuguan ng Pilipinas sa telepono bilang (010) 6532-1872, local 46.



Sa mga kasapi ng e-group ng Pasuguan, maaari po lamang na ikalat ang impormasyong ito sa lahat ng ating mga kababayan, lalo na ang mga Pilipinong hindi kasama sa e-group o ang mga walang email address.

The Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau (PSB) has agreed to the appeal of the Embassy that it to give due consideration to the hardships experienced by Filipinos who are overstaying in Beijing .



In this regard, the PSB has agreed to waive the penalty of detention for those overstaying Filipinos who voluntarily surrender themselves to the PSB before 30 June 2011. Please also be guided by the following:



1. The waiver only includes the penalty of detention.

2. The investigation phase, the exit visa fee (RMB 160), and the payment of the overstaying fee (RMB 5,000), whenever applicable, will still be carried out.

3. The purchase of the plane ticket to the Philippines will also be the responsibility of the Filipinos concerned.

4. The issuance of a Travel Document for those whose passports have expired may be arranged with the Embassy.

5. Requests for government financial assistance for payment of overstaying fee, air ticket, etc., which are filed in the form of a sworn statement, will be considered on a case-to-case basis. Those who wish to put the details of their case in writing may also do so by filing a sworn statement.

6. Those who wish to avail themselves of this opportunity are requested to visit the Embassy first before proceeding to the PSB.



Only those overstaying Filipinos who surrender voluntarily to the PSB before 30 June 2011 will be eligible for waiver of detention. Those who are caught by the PSB for overstaying will not qualify for the waiver. The Embassy encourages all overstaying Filipinos to avail themselves of this opportunity to facilitate their repatriation to the Philippines .



For further queries and/or clarifications, please call the Embassy's Assistance to Nationals (ATN) hotline at 13911180495 or the Embassy trunkline at (010) 6532-1872 local 46.



The members of the Filcom e-group are requested to disseminate this information to our kababayans, especially those who have not enlisted themselves in the e-group who may need to avail themselves of the waiver of detention.

Due to the recent unprecedented increase in passport applications and other technical concerns, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) is currently experiencing a back log in the processing and releasing of passports.



The DFA is exerting all efforts and is working diligently to resolve this problem. In this regard, and upon instructions from the DFA, the Embassy has implemented the following measures:



1. Extension of passports of applicants up to one (1) year, free of charge, while applicants wait for the release of their e-Passports, subject to the following conditions.



1.1 Only the following passports may be extended:

Ø Green passports that will expire six (6) months or less from the date of application;

Ø Green passports that have expired one (1) year from the date of application.



1.2 Extension of validity is only for one (1) year from the date of application. Applications for extension of passports that have expired more than one (1) year from date of application will be referred to the Passport Director's Office, Office of Consular Affairs, Department of Foreign Affairs, Manila , before any extension will be granted.



2. To reduce the back log in the processing and releasing of passports, the Office of Consular Affairs (OCA) in Manila has extended passport processing services until 8:00 p.m. on weekdays, and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays, effective May 2011.



The Embassy is in touch with the OCA in Manila concerning the processing and release of the e-Passports of those who have applied and have not yet received their new passports. The Embassy follows the practice of immediately informing those whose passports are ready for pick up.



The Filipino community is reminded to apply for their new passports at least six (6) months before the expiry of their current passports.



For additional information, queries and clarifications, please call the Embassy's trunkline at (010) 6532-1872 local 18. You may also direct your queries to the Office of Consular Affairs at telephone numbers (+632) 737.1000 and 556.0000, send an email to oca@dfa.gov.ph, or visit the DFA website www.dfa.gov.ph.



The DFA and the Embassy appreciates the public's understanding and patience for this situation, and reiterates our commitment to resolve these problems at the soonest possible time.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) issued Advisory Opinion No. 2 explaining the issues surrounding the recruitment, arrest, detention and conviction of Filipinos caught transporting illegal drugs abroad. Advisory Opinion No. 2 is in line with the thrust of the DOJ to take a pro-active stance in criminal justice concerns, including the issue on Filipino illegal drug couriers.



The Advisory is addressed to both Filipinos who willingly accept offers to become illegal drug couriers and those who were involuntarily caught in the criminal activities of syndicates through various modus operandi. In either case, the Advisory lays down basic rules/advisory points that all Filipinos should bear in mind once they are apprehended abroad on suspicion of transporting illegal drugs. The advisory points are as follows:



1. "Carry at your own risk."

2. Knowledge is immaterial and intent is not a requirement in drug trafficking.

3. Be vigilant of the modus operandi of drug syndicates.

4. In the unfortunate event of arrest or detention for drug trafficking, have presence of mind and to not resist arrest.

5. Assert your legal rights, inquire on the legal remedies and request for consular assistance.

6. Presumption of innocence will always apply.

7. The laws of the country of arrest apply.

8. If sentenced, the government can only be of limited assistance.

9. "Blood money" cannot be paid to erase the liability of a person convicted of a crime involving illegal drugs.

Take full responsibility for your actions.

pinoy_sa_china] INSIDENTE HINGGIL SA UNAWAANG WAIVER-OF-DETENTION SA PSBFriday, July 29, 2011 5:35 PM
From: "philippine" <philippineembassy>Add sender to ContactsTo: pinoy_sa_china@yahoogroups.com

Noong Mayo 2011, nagkaroon ng unawaan sa pagitan ng Pasuguan ng Pilipinas at ng Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau (PSB) kung saan ang mga Pilipinong overstaying sa Beijing ay hindi papatawan ng detensyon kung kusa silang susuko sa PSB sa pamamagitan ng Pasuguan. Ang unawaang ito ay nagkaroon ng bisa hanggang noong ika-30 ng Hunyo 2011. Apat (4) na Pilipino ang nakinabang sa unawaang ito at sila ay naka-balik sa Pilipinas noong nakaraang buwan nang walang anumang mga pangyayari.

Tulad ng sa unang 4 na Pilipino, ang huling grupo ng walong (Cool Pilipino na overstaying ay nagpasyang makinabang sa unawaang ito bago matapos ang deadline at sila ay tinulungan ng Pasuguan. Ipinaalam ng Pasuguan sa PSB na ang grupong ito ng 8 Pilipino na overstaying ay napapasa-ilalim ng unawaan ukol sa waiver-of-detention sa pamamagitan ng mga notes verbale na ipinadala sa PSB bago ang deadline noong ika-30 Hunyo. Sa kabila ng mga follow-up, itinakda ng PSB ang kanilang panayam sa mga Pilipino noon lamang ika-19 Hulyo 2011, labing-siyam (19) na araw matapos ang deadline. Alin-sunod sa unawaan, sinamahan ng mga kinatawan ng Pasuguan ang grupo sa PSB umaga ng 19 Hulyo 2011. Nang mag-uumpisa na ang panayam ng PSB sa mga Pilipino, sinabi ng PSB sa mga kinatawan ng Pasuguan na iwanan ang mga Pilipino sa kanila. Nang naglaon, may mga problemang lumitaw at nagpasya ang PSB na idetena ang mga Pilipino.

Walang ibinigay na paliwanag ang PSB sa Pasuguan sa kanilang desisyon at wala rin natanggap ang Pasuguan na paglilinaw sa mga pangyayari mula sa PSB. Ang isang posibleng dahilan sa hindi inaasahang desisyon na ito ng PSB ay ang pagpapalit ng mga kina-uukulang opisyal sa PSB mula ika-30 ng Hunyo hanggang ika-19 ng Hulyo.



Mula noong nadetena ang 8 Pilipino, gumawa ang Pasuguan ng pormal at impormal na representasyon sa PSB para palayain ang mga Pilipino mula sa detensyon at ibalik sila sa Pilipinas. Sinusubaybayan ng Pasuguan ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino. Humihiling din ang Pasuguan ng isang pulong sa PSB at ang bisita sa mga Pilipino sa lalong madaling panahon.

Matatag at walang-tinag ang representasyon ng Pasuguan sa PSB na dapat palayain ang mga Pilipino at dapat kilalanin ng PSB ang kanyang binitiwang salita at unawaan ukol sa waiver-of-detention.

Ikinalulungkot ng Pasuguan ang pangyayaring ito. Sinisiguro ng Pasuguan sa Filipino community na sinisikap at ginagawa nito ang lahat ng makakaya upang mapalaya ang mga overstaying na Pilipino na nadetena at ang kanilang pagbabalik sa Pilipinas sa lalong madaling panahon.

pinoy_sa_china] Advisory on the “Not Valid for Travel to IRAQ” Stamp on Philippine PassportsSaturday, August 6, 2011 2:01 PM
From: "philippine" <philippineembassy>Add sender to ContactsTo: pinoy_sa_china@yahoogroups.com

Please be advised that all Philippine regular passports printed after 1 July 2011 and issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) will no longer carry the stamp "Not Valid for Travel to Iraq " in the limitations page.

For passports currently in circulation, the stamp will be considered void by Philippine authorities and holders of these passports are advised to disregard the stamp. Current passport holders who wish not to have the stamp may wish to apply for new passports.

In spite of the removal of the "Not Valid for Travel to Iraq " stamp on passports issued after 1 July 2011, the public is advised that the labor deployment ban to Iraq is still in effect. Travel to Iraq , under any circumstance, is still risky due to security concerns.

The public is advised to check the DFA website at www.dfa.gov.ph for updated travel advisories to Iraq , or to contact the DFA, DOLE, POEA or other relevant Philippine government agencies regarding travel to Iraq .
