License of Two Agencies, Cancelled by POEA

In an advisory that appeared in the official website of POEA, the government agency announced the cancellation of licenses of two recruitment agencies, the Lucky International Placement Services Inc. and Tai-Fil Manpower Services Inc.

The reason for the cancellation of license is excessive collection of placement fees in violation of the POEA rules and regulations.

According to Viveca Catalig, Officer-in-Charge of the POEA, the license of Lucky International was canceled because of a complain from an applicant that was charged PhP101,000.00 for a caretaker job in Taiwan.

Meanwhile, the license of Tai-Fil Manpower Services Inc. was canceled after a complainant said that he was asked to pay a placement fee amounting to PhP100,000 for a job as a food processor in Taiwan.

Recruitment agencies with cancelled licenses are prohibited from conducting or participating in any recruitment activity.

“The public should be extra cautious when applying for work overseas and report to POEA any observed irregularity. Always check the status of your
recruitment agencies for your own protection by visiting our website, www.poea.gov.ph or by calling POEA hotlines 722-1144 / 722-1155, and report those that are still recruiting despite the suspension or cancellation of their licenses,” Catalig concluded

    good day po. sana po may makapag enlighten sa ako sa situation ko ngayon. nag.apply po ako sa isang agency ng mag jobfair, for qatar po ito as private nurse. Binigyan napo nila ako ng visa. but ang ipinagtataka ko lang is hindi pa naman po ako nakapag.medical at nakapirma ng kontrata. ngayon nag back.out po ako due to personal reasons and that agency asked me to pay them a sum of 10-15k pesos for the cancellation of my visa daw and other charges. I wonder what are those charges e wala naman akong pinirmahang kontrata. ganyan po ba talaga ang ibang agency mauuna ang visa before the contract? do i owe them that amount po ba?

    Nadali nga din kami ng AL-AHRAM AGENCY na yan. After na ma-interview ng employer (kuno), of course, hired…papapag-medical-in na agad dahil urgent daw ang hiring. Since April noong nag-conduct ng interview, pag tinatawagan or tine-text si MS. SHIELA, di sya sasagot para lang malaman kung ano ang status ng visa. Bandang huli malalaman na lang na nag iipon lang pala sila ng mga certified documents. SA TOTOO LANG, NO VISA AND NO JOB ORDER!!! Beware of AL-AHRAM AGENCY…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
