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.

10 Things OFWs Should Not Do in Saudi Arabia

Posted by:

Saudi Arabia is very strict when it comes to their cultural values and traditions. It is only right for overseas Filipino workers to respect this and follow the existing laws and rules implemented.

 

OFWs in the kingdom should not do the following to avoid imprisonment, punishment or deportation:

  1. Wearing indecent clothes that shows off most part of the body when in public places. Women can wear an abaya to cover up.
  2. Female OFWs should avoid entering entertainment shops or stores.
  3. Women are not allowed to dine in at restaurants alone. They should be accompanied by their husband.
  4. Public display of affection is prohibited in the kingdom.
  5. Taking photos of mosques, airports and military bases without permission is forbidden.
  6. Persons of the opposite sex should not be together in a room unless they are married.
  7. Non-muslim OFWs are off-limits at mosques.
  8. OFWs shouldn’t carry or use illegal drugs.
  9. Bringing or displaying religious items like a bible, holy cross, etc. is strictly prohibited.
  10. Gambling and pornographic materials is also banned in the kingdom.

 

OFWs struggled hard just to find and land an overseas job in the hopes of providing a better future for their family. So one should be very careful not to do anything that can cause their deportation back to the Philippines.

KAMING MGA OFWs, MAYAMAN SA RESIBO

Posted by:

Kapag nasa abroad, wow! Ang nasa isip ng mga tao sa Pilipinas, ang mga OFWs ay sosyal, masaya, mayaman, etc. It was also the same thinking we had before we experienced working as OFWs. Hindi bawat OFW ay mapalad na gaya ng iba pero majority sa amin ay problemado lalo na when it comes to financial matters.

I am working in a remittance company here in Qatar. Every day when I am at work, halos lahat ng mga customers namin ay isa ang sinasabi “I’m here again, padala na naman. At ganon talaga”.  Nakakatuwa ‘di ba? Another thing which is common and is actually happening ay ang tawanan ng mga customers namin, talking about their families in the Philippines – about the text messages na dumarating at end of the month. Alam na! nagparamdam kasi malapit na ang pay day. But after sending the control number ng perang pinadala, wala ng feedback if they received the cash o hindi pa. Minsan kami pa mismo ang unang magte-text o tatawag just to confirm. But we understand kasi mahal ang international calls/text.  Buti na nga lang may social media na ngayon.

Kaming OFWs, Mayaman sa Resibo

Mayaman? Oo, mayaman kami sa resibo dahil monthly, we’re sending money to our families. Sa dami ng resibo namin, pwede na siguro kaming magtayo ng museum for our receipts na iba-iba ang services na nagamit at bansang pinagmulan. Bayani nga kami kung tawagin dahil sa aming sacrifices at maging sa aming great contribution for our country. Totoong mahirap ang malayo sa mga mahal sa buhay. Oo, masarap mamuhay sa abroad pero mahirap din. But for our dreams para sa sarili at pamilya, handa kaming magtiis.

Bakit nga ba sa resibo kami mayaman? Aside sa monthly support kasi namin for our family, yung iba may pinag-aaral sa college o kaya ay may project na pinapagawa – bahay or whatsoever. As much as we wanted to help everyone including our relatives na lumalapit eh wala na kaming maibigay dahil we also have personal needs at mahal din ang bilihin dito. Most especially yung mga OFWs na andito kasama ang asawa at mga anak nila, mahal din po ang tuition fees ng mga bata. Expenses pa sa daily na pagpasok ng mga kids kaya sana maintindihan niyo rin if talagang walang maibigay the moment na lalapit kayo.

Malaki man o maliit ang sahod ng mga OFWs dito, I tell you halos lahat ay problemado din sa pera lalo na kaming mga simpleng OFWs. If you will not experience working abroad, you will never understand kung ano ang sinasabi namin. Good thing lang talaga dito ay we are provided free accommodation and transportation by our company at higit sa lahat tax free.

Whatever the reasons are, we OFWs have the deepest reasons why we are here. It’s a challenge for us not to forget yung sarili din natin, kasi in the end, babalik at babalik din tayo sa ating bayan. Kaya SAVINGS is a must and we have to spend our money wisely.
