Nun loses appeal to stay in Philippines

An Australian missionary nun facing deportation in the Philippines has had her appeal to remain in the country denied by the country‘s Bureau of Immigration.

Sister Patricia Fox, 71, was in April ordered to leave the Philippines – where she‘s lived for more than 27 years – by May 25 because the bureau said she violated her missionary visa.

Her lawyers appealed the decision but the Bureau of Immigration on Wednesday said it had “reaffirmed its order forfeiting the missionary visa” of Sr Fox and ordered her to leave the country by Friday, May 25.
