Bureau of Immigration The Bureau of Immigration evolved from a mere division of the Bureau of Customs in 1899, in the early years of the American regime in the Philippines. This was pursuant to Act No. 702 of the Philippine Commission. It seems that the government then, attached more importance on the entry of goods than on monitoring of aliens coming into the country. The government was more interested in customs duties that they may generate from these incoming goods, than in the control and regulation of the arrival and stay of foreigners.
