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.

A Chance for Filipino Doctors and Nurses to work in KSA

Posted by:

Filipino healthcare workers who desires of working abroad may find great opportunity in Saudi Arabia.

KSA’s Ministry of Economy and Planning announces that Saudi Arabia urgently needed at least 10, 000 doctors and 20, 000 nurses for its public hospitals and health centers by the end of the year.

Saudi Arabia targets to create one health center per 7,000 people in various parts of the kingdom, emphasizing the need to build around 3,000 new health centers to address the shortage of health services for citizens.

Saudi’s Health Ministry was criticized for its poor health services, adding that their centralized system often fails to make right decisions.

With this demand for 30,000 doctors and nurses, Filipino healthcare workers may find this as their lucky chance to work abroad and earn higher salary, as what most OFWs seek for.

It is now time to prepare those necessary documents for working abroad and check POEA-licensed recruitment agencies for job hiring’s.  But OFWs must remember to be careful when dealing with recruitment agencies.

OFWs: No to 2-year Ban in KSA for Exiting Filipinos

Posted by:

Before, the only problem overseas Filipino workers in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia faces was the maltreatment of employers and delayed or low salary. Now, they have another thing to worry about.

A 2-year ban on expatriates was proposed which will also affect OFWs leaving KSA with a final exit visa.  The said proposal will only allow expatriates with final exit visa to return to the kingdom two years after they exited.

This action is in coordination with the kingdom’s Saudization program, creating more job opportunities to Saudi nationals rather than employing expatriates, with OFWs most of the time.

But OFWs protest to this proposal because for them, it is against the Saudi and Philippine government’s labor agreement.  If ever the idea will push through, OFWs deployment will be affected and more Filipinos will add to the number of unemployed individuals.  This will also affect the Philippine’s economy since OFWs remittances are of great help for the country.

Filipino migrant worker-supporting groups also emphasized that most OFWs were forced to leave KSA on final exit visas because of their labor disputes which is mainly matters regarding their salary, humane injustice and breach of contract they’ve signed before leaving the Philippines.

The 2-year ban for expatriates leaving KSA with final exit visas was proposed by the Council of Saudi Chambers (CSC) labor market committee, which reviewed the kingdom’s Saudization program.

The recommendation which will greatly affect OFWs was patterned to the same measure taken by Oman, Saudi’s neighbouring Gulf country.

Oman imposes a two-year visa ban on expatriates who leave their jobs because of labor arguments.  But they can return to Oman on a tourist, family joining, and visitor or investor visa.

OFWs are concerned that if ever the proposed two-year ban on expatriates were imposed, most Filipinos who work in KSA will suffer unemployment with their final exit visa. They call on to the government to settle the issue with the Saudi government so that OFWs will not endure in the end.
