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.

Working Abroad Tips: Avoid Illegal Recruitment!

Posted by:

Reminder to Applicants:

Be a wise jobseeker by knowing the legal process of overseas job application and your right as an applicant. Keep in mind the tips below:

  • You are not supposed to pay any application fee. Application forms and other application documents should be for free. An agency would only be allowed to request 50% of the placement fee amount once you have been selected by an employer and signed an employment contract
  • A medical examination is done only after an applicant is hired. It only has a validity of 3 months so it should not be required at the star tof the application process.
  • Do not submit original documents to the agency. You will present the original documents but only the photocopies of the original documents should be given to the agency. Your documents such as passport, birth certificate etc, are personal property so you should be allowed to keep it.
