POEA Advised OFWs Not to Use 2 Visas

Posted by:

In pursuit of their dreams to give brighter future for their families, most overseas Filipino workers or OFWs will grab on anything just to be able to work abroad. These often results to being victims of scams, illegal recruitments and abuse in those foreign countries.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) released an advisory warning Filipinos about recruitment agencies using the double visa scheme to deploy workers abroad.

Some Filipinos set to leave for deployment to work abroad was found bearing two employment visas for two different jobs. They were stopped by the Bureau of Immigration from boarding the plane bound to Middle East countries.  The Filipino recruits were questioned and they admitted to knowing that their actual work is different from what is in the processed documents.

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said that greedy recruiters from agencies like to use the double visa deployment scheme in order to avoid the protective system set by the government.  This often results to the abuse and exploitation of Filipino household service workers or HSWs abroad.

Cacdac also said that most Filipino HSWs who are in the safety of Migrant Workers and Filipino Resource Center in Dubai were deployed there using two visas.

Working abroad in this kind of deployment from recruitment agencies will make any Filipinos or OFWs undocumented, taking risks for their own safety and welfare in the foreign land.

KSA’s Ministry of Economy and Planning announces that Saudi Arabia urgently needed at least 10, 000 doctors and 20, 000 nurses for its public hospitals and health centers by the end of the year.

Saudi Arabia targets to create one health center per 7,000 people in various parts of the kingdom, emphasizing the need to build around 3,000 new health centers to address the shortage of health services for citizens.
