SISTER FOX TO APPEAL BI DENIAL OF MISSIONARY VISA EXTENSION



For the camp of Australian missionary Sister Patricia Fox, the fight is not yet over despite the decision of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) to not extend her missionary visa.

Lawyer Jobert Pahilga, the counsel of Fox, was quoted in a report saying they will file a motion for reconsideration either on Monday or Tuesday.

In a two-page order signed Thursday, the BI denied Fox’s plea to have her missionary visa extended, citing her pending deportation order for the decision.

Following this, the Australian nun is required to apply for a 59-day tourist visa within 15 days upon the receipt of the order.

Its validity will run from the date of her missionary visa expiration which is Sept.
