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.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration advises Filipino overseas applicants especially those who want to work as domestic helpers in Hong Kong and Macau, to be careful of job offers bound for China using tourist or business visas. 

poea new

According to POEA Administrator Hans Leo J, Cacdac. due to the growing numbers of undocumented OFWs in China, the country has not relaxed its immigration policy with regard to unskilled labor including nannies, caregivers, and household helpers.  He added that “Most importantly,  business and tourist visas cannot be converted to work visa, which is required of foreign workers before they can work legally in China.”

Cacdac also warned teachers regarding job offers in the internet for English language teaching positions in China without work visas.

The OFW Code of Discipline

Posted by:

The OFW Code of Discipline:

Duty to Oneself, Family and Fellow OFWs

Many Filipinos opt to work in a foreign land for the sake of their loved ones’ betterment. This motivation is one of the reasons why the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) created the OFW Code of Discipline.

 

The code encompasses what an OFW’s duties to himself, to his family, fellow OFWs, country of origin and destination, and to his employer are.

 

DUTY TO ONESELF

DOs

  • Assert the occupation, position and job scope to which you have been hired for.
  • Assert one’s entitlements to all wages, compensation, and benefits agreed upon in the employment contract.
  • Be professional; maintain self-respect, good image and track record.
  • Ensure personal health as well as psycho-social and economic well-being; be aware of one’s vulnerabilities to HIV/AIDS.
  • Be responsible for one’s safety and security at all times, including that of one’s belongings and personal property.
  • Notify the Philippine embassy or diplomatic mission of your presence in the country of work.

DON’TS

  • Engage in prostitution, drug trafficking, illegal recruitment, human smuggling and trafficking or other transnational crimes whether as principal party or accessory.
  • Possess deadly weapons, explosives and prohibited drugs, alcohol, pornographic or other contraband materials.
  • Solicit services of unauthorized manpower brokers and fixers for underground migration.
  • Don’t fall to “4D” jobs – dirty, dangerous, demeaning and (unreasonably) difficult.

 

DUTY TO FAMILY

DOs

  • Provide ample financial and moral support to your family in the Philippines.
  • Communicate with your family as often as you can and make your presence felt just as if you were around.
  • Provide them detailed information and documents about your overseas employment.
  • Be faithful to your spouse.

 DON’Ts

  • Abandon your family and refuse/discontinue support for the children.
  • Bring your family, especially young children, to hardship posts or countries where there is high risk to one’s welfare and security.

DUTY TO FELLOW OFWs

DOs

  • Assist and cooperate with other  OFWs working in the same site, especially in times of crisis.
  • Support OFW organizations of Filipino diaspora groups and contribute to their productive role.

DON’Ts

  • Degrade a colleague or put him/her in bad light in order to get a position/rank or other personal gains.
  • Act as an unofficial remittance courier for all its risks of loss or robbery or spend for personal use money entrusted by fellow workers.
  • Invent lies and allegations against fellow OFWs to have them deported, detained or to be under police surveillance.
