“Our policy on the wearing of the BI uniform is clear. As public servants and supposed model Filipinos, employees must proudly wear their uniform at all times, present a professional image to the public and observe proper decorum and good taste in all their actions while they are on duty, Morente said.

The BI executive explained that positive videos on social media undermines the reputation of the agency. Immigration employees are also advised to avoid using gadgets and mobile devices during work.
