3 Chinese nat’ls held at NAIA for fake passports

THREE Chinese nationals found with falsified passport stamps were intercepted Wednesday last week by Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers assigned at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2.

BI Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina said that the three, identified as Qiu Qilong, Su Lianfa and Wang Huiting were intercepted upon attempting to depart via a Philippine Airlines flight for Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. 

Upon verification of our records, it was confirmed that they falsified their previous travel history.

In their passports you would see that they arrived last February, but our database clearly shows that they’ve been here without leaving since January,’ Medina said, adding that their centralized database contains all the travel information of arriving and departing passengers, hence “falsification of such in travel documents would be easily detected by officers”.

The three have been immediately sent back to their port of origin and included in the BI's blacklist.
