- The BI forfeited her missionary visa after Roque showed photos of her speaking at a Davao rally
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has ordered Australian missionary nun Sr. Patricia Fox to leave the Philippines after she was accused of involving in political rallies.
BI commissioner Jaime Morente explained that the agency forfeited Fox’s missionary visa after “she was found to have engaged in activities that are not allowed under the terms and conditions of her visa,” as quoted by Inquirer.
Fox was ordered to leave the country within 30 days after receiving the order. Morente explained that Fox’s missionary visa permits “only the privilege to engage in missionary work and not in political activities.”
This came after photos of Sr. Fox was presented by Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque showing her holding a microphone and speaking at a Davao Rally on April 9.
BI Spokesperson Antonette Bucasas-Mangrobang clarified that Sr. Fox may still return but she needs to secure a tourist visa.
