Immigration Forms

Whenever you enter another country you of course fill out an immigration form. The Philippines is no exception. As with a lot of Asian countries they have the death penalty for drug offenses over a certain severity. So it's no suprise that they print in red at the bottom of the form a warning about The Death Penalty for Drug Traffickers!

But what came as a real surprise was the email address for The Philippines Bureau of Immigration. It's a hotmail address! The final interesting thing about the form is that maybe a quarter of the space is taken up with an advertisement for one of the local Phone companies! Well, it's less burden on the taxpayer.
