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.

Employment Contract Replacement, A Threat to OFWs

Posted by:

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs are advised to be aware of employment contract substitution that is becoming a normal scenario for Filipinos who are to work abroad.

 

The Philippine government is taking up all measures to ensure the safety and welfare of OFWs in foreign countries by creating a standard employment contract. The standard employment contract stipulates various terms and conditions to be agreed upon by the hired OFW and the foreign employer.

 

Informations like job position, contract duration, salary rates, benefits, overtime pay, just causes for termination and other important matters should be included in an OFWs employment contract.

 

Most OFWs in Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries encounter this replacement of employment contract. Upon arrival in the kingdom, OFWs are once again asked to sign a new contract which has a big difference from what they’ve signed before.

 

Contract substitution is one of the most common problems of OFWs and it usually leaves them underpaid and with extended contract duration. This will also be a mean for foreign employers to abuse and violate OFWs abroad.

 

OFWs should seek first the assistance of the Philippine Embassy in such cases of employment contract substitution.

How to Save Money: Tips for OFWs

Posted by:

The goal to save should be a top priority for OFWs because for majority of them, the working abroad stint is a temporary thing. Here are few tips to make the goal towards financial freedom easier:

  • Put your mind to it. Don’t underestimate the power of positive thinking People who are serious about saving money should first make a firm decision to save. Have the mindset that you will save moneyand stick to it.
  • Live below your means. Many OFWs upon receiving their salary would start thinking of things they want to buy like gadgets, appliances, jewelries, etc. Many OFWs and their families would also live a lavish lifestyle that would often leave their heads aching and their pockets empty. It is still best to live a simple life and to avoid spending as much as possible. Spend only on things that are needed and reduce those unnecessary wants.
