The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Thursday said it will be terminating the services of a private contractor that included an advertisement of the Belo Medical Group in its printed arrival and departure cards routinely given to airline passengers.
Immigration Officer-In-Charge Ronaldo Ledesma said the cards, which double as discount coupons, will likewise be recalled because they were put in circulation without first getting the agency’s approval.

The card, which features popular celebrity dermatologist Dr. Vicky Belo, was produced by private contractor e.Xtend Inc., which has an office along Kamias Road in Quezon City.
"Gumawa po ng mga cards na walang consultation and approval namin kaya pinatigil ko na po ang paggamit," Ledesma told GMANews.TV in an interview. (I have ordered the use of the cards to stop because they were produced without consulting us and getting our approval.)
