730 AED Coronavirus Cash Assistance for Filipinos Suspended

Filipinos in Dubai and Northern Emirates, a new advisory has been announced by POLO-Dubai regarding the AED 730 cash assistance to those affected by the coronavirus. Initially, we reported that there will be a cash aid worth 200 USD (730 AED) including those who have ‘no work no pay’. However, this program has been temporarily suspended.

The reason for the suspension is subject to the availability of funds. The full advisory was posted on the POLO-Dubai website.

For those who are in Abu Dhabi, as of April 20, there is no update yet from the POLO-Abu Dhabi website if there is also suspension of cash aid for Abu Dhabi Filipino residents.
