OFWs’ Long Queue in GAMCA Centers To End Soon

Posted by:
A concerned citizen took a video of how long Filipino applicants for overseas jobs wait in line to be able to undergo the required medical examination.

GAMCA or GCC Approved Medical Clinics Association, processes the examination for OFWs who are about to work in Middle East countries such as Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and Qatar. Any medical examination done from non-GAMCA clinics are invalid and unrecognized.

Luckily, the House committee on Overseas Workers Affair has now taken action to put an end to aspiring OFW’s sacrifice. Read more about this great news, OFWs Can Soon Choose Other DOH-Accredited Clinics.
