The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Sunday said it would no longer issue alien certificate of registration identity cards (ACR I-Card) to Filipinos holding dual or multiple citizenship.

Immigration Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. said this new policy was aimed  at preventing Filipinos from using the document to misrepresent or conceal vital citizenship information when they enter countries that do not recognize dual and multiple citizenship.

David said all ACR I-Card applicants will now be required to declare under oath that they do not hold more than one citizenship.

“State policy dictates that we should not condone deceit or misrepresentation on vital citizenship information,” David said. Jocelyn R. Uy
