DFA to OFWs in Libya: Go Home Now!

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) called out to all Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Libya to come home immediately after Alert Level 4 was raised.

The latest events in Libya had indicated the place is no longer safe for OFWs to stay as the fight between rival militia groups escalated. Thus, they are requested to register for repatriation in the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli.

The alert level was raised once again because of the extreme security threats to Filipinos, especially in Benghazi. Other factors are the extreme political and security situation, the increasing violence and lawlessness, and the closure of major airports because of fears of the all-out civil wars.

Ever since the start of the crisis in the country, and when DFA raised Alert level 3 on May 29, they have closely monitored the security development while trying not to affect the needs of OFWs in Libya.

The department had also put up hotlines for families of OFWs in Libya where they can call for questions and concerns about the conditions of their relatives.

The Philippine Embassy in Tripoli had already reached out to OFWs in Libya, the Filipino community, and to their employer to inform them of the action made by DFA to the crisis.
The violence existing in Libya had never stopped; instead it just continues to worsen. That is why the Philippine government, thru the Department of Foreign Affairs and its Philippine Embassy in Tripoli, had started operation to repatriate OFWs because of the levelling crisis in the said country. There are an estimated 13,000 Filipinos in Libya, some who may have pass through Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok because of the no-visa requirement. Other OFWs illegally enters the Middle East through these cities.

Families and relatives of OFWs in Libya can ask them to voluntarily come back to the country rather than staying indoors of their apartments and risking their lives in the current situation of the country. OFWs are our modern heroes, but we don’t want them to make their lives at stake just because of better-paying jobs in the Middle East. Safety first, before anything else.
