Kuwait’s Bill to Affect Millions of Expatriates

Posted by:

Kuwait is home to more than 2.4 million expatriates including overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), both working and living in this Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) country.  It is also OFWs favorite destination to work abroad.

Expatriates in the country includes Asian unskilled labourers and domestic helpers, which comprises mainly two-thirds of it’s population.

Concerned Kuwaiti lawmakers were alarmed by this number, stating that something has to be done to lessen Kuwait’s dependence on foreign workers.

A bill was endorsed last month to set limit on the expatriates number in the country. The bill is to set restrictions on any foreigners community to only less than 10 percent of Kuwait’s total population. This means that a community should not have more than 125,000 expatriates.

The proposal also aims to imposed a“five-year residency cap on expatriates and a ban on bringing their families too, in Kuwait. As a result, this will affect millions of expatriates wherein thousands would have to leave the country. Nationalities that would be greatly cut down by this proposal are Indians, Egyptian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Filipino, and Syrian, whether unskilled or semi-skilled workers.

But the proposal is still for approval from the legal and legislative committee, assessing if it complies with  the constitution and laws of Kuwait.

OFWs will be affected once this bill is passed and implemented by the Kuwaiti government. Though OFWs are highly in demand because of their skills, private business sector will have no choice but to obey once the bill is passed and mandatory implemented.

The business sector is boldly opposing the proposal, even resisting all deportation calls, emphasizing that the slice on expatriates or foreign workers “could result in grave economic issues in the country.”

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.
