DFA downgrade crisis alert level for Libya from 4 to 2

Posted by:

DFA

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has lowered the crisis alert level for overseas Filipino workers in Libya after the recommendation of a Security Assessment Team (SAT).

From alert level 4, DFA downgrade it to level 2 after the SAT confirm the prevailing security situation. An alert level 2 means there are still threats to life, security and property of Filipinos arising from internal disturbances, instability and/or external threat. It also instruct OFWs to restrict non-essential movements,  avoid public places, and be prepared for evacuation.

New deployment of OFWs to Libya is still prohibited by the DFA, but OFWs with valid and existing contracts can return if they want to.

DFA raised alert level 4 in Libya last 2014 when the country was deemed unsafe for overseas Filipino workers or OFWs after the fight between rival militia groups escalated.

POEA to OFWs: Don’t pay for an Australian visa

Posted by:

warning

 

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs were advised by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) not to pay for their Australian visa for a job abroad.

 

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said applicants should be careful of job offer that requires payment for work or sponsorship visas.

 

The Australian government had passed its Migration Amendment Act last December 2015 which also prohibits sponsor, visa applicant or other third party engaging in a paid transaction for the following:

 

  • Nominating to sponsor a person
  • Becoming an approved sponsor
  • Threatening to dismiss someone affecting their visa status, and;
  • Withdrawing a nomination application

 

Violating this which is considered as criminal offense will result to two-years imprisonment or a fine of $64,000 for a person and $324,000 for a company or organization.

 

However, the Australian government said they will allow payment of a reasonable amount for professional fees to registered migration agents for services such as preparing, lodging, and advising the outcome of an immigration application.

What Awaits Filipinos Overstaying with Visit Visa in Saudi

Posted by:

A maximum of SR50,000 fine, imprisonment and/or deportation is what an overstaying visit visa holder in Saudi will get.

 

The General Directorate of Passports (Jawazat) warned foreign visit visa holders, as well as expat workers, not to stay beyond the validity period.

 

Expats or Saudi who issued the visit visa will be fined an amount of SR15,000 for their first offense. A three-month jail time and a penalty of SR25,000 is up for the second violation. While SR50,000 fine, six months in jail and deportation for expats will be the punishment for third offense.

 

Questions may be directed to Jawazat by contacting them online through their website gdp.gov.sa@992.

 

To avoid any inconvenience such as these penalties, the directorate encourage all visit visa holders to obey the residency regulations in Saudi and leave the kingdom before the expiration date.
