How Can OFW Maintain A Healthy Relationship

Posted by:

There are many distractions that may prove decisive in the fate of long distance relationships. Suspicious media status, hectic work schedule and wide gap in time zone difference are among the reasons that could break an already fragile love situation. Many people don’t want long distance relationship because they think that this type of love affair will not work. It may or may not work depending on the effort one gives for the relationship. Here below are ways on how should OFWs maintain a healthy relationship.

Healthy Relationship

  1. Set specific time for regular appointments: It is important to stick with initial plans. As you start as an OFW, adjust with your colleagues and get a feel of your environment.
  2. Keep the line of communications open: You need to tell your partner important things you are experiencing. You can also tell him not-so-important updates because this will make him feel that you want him to know all the things you are doing. Sending him/her text messages, calling him/her, sending messages through social media and video-calling through Skype is the most important thing you need to do to make the relationship work.
  3. Plan a time to meet each other: Talk about a funny incident at work. Plan of some interesting and fun topics to talk about in order to keep the conversation lively or anything that interests your partner.
  4. Trust your partner: If you really love your partner, you will trust him. One of the reasons why long distance relationship does not work is because of lack of trust.
  5. Do something out of the usual: You may even surprise him/her with a visit or send letters or flowers. Nothing brightens up the lonely heart with some unique thoughtful gifts that doesn’t need to be expensive like personally crafted works of yours.

 

When you decide to work abroad be ready for the consequences, one of the partner’s love may weaken. Absence makes the heart go wander but the long distance relationship only survives when there is respect for the other person, and that only if one will always looked at the sacrifice of the other.

Question from an OFW Without Proper Documents in UAE

Posted by:

Can an OFW that goes to United Arab Emirates (UAE) using a tourist visa and got caught while applying for a job go back as a legal worker?

At the fan page of WorkAbroad.ph, a member named Kai asked this question:

Mga Kabayan, I need your advice. Ang pinsan ko po ay na-pabalik sa ‘Pinas mula sa UAE dahil sa minalas at nahuli na tourist visa ang gamit habang naghahanap ng trabaho. Balak niya pong muling bumalik sa UAE pero sa pamamagitan na ng legal na paraan.

Ang tanong po, kapag po ba nadeport ang isang OFW ay automatic na ban na siya? Kung sakali, ilang taon po kaya ang bisa ng ban at saan po ba nache-check kung ban ka?

Facebook fans were quick to provide a response to Kai’s questions. Some said that the ban is not permanent and would only last for six (6) months while others say it will be for one (1) year. One fan provided the contact details of the UAE Embassy in Taguig as this is the agency that can give accurate and complete information about the inquiry.

POEA Advice to Overseas Jobseekers

Posted by:

As posted in the Facebook page of PIA-OFW, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) provides additional tips to all Filipinos who wish to seek employment opportunities abroad.  This is so they can avoid being a victim of human trafficking.

Apparently, the common reminder that jobseekers should always check if they are dealing with a licensed recruitment agency is not enough because there are licensed recruiters who are also perpetrators of human trafficking. Check out equally important reminders below:

  • Check if the job opening has a valid POEA job order.
  • If offered a job, make sure that you read, understand and agree with everything that is written in the employment contract.
