Once they arrive in the home country, The Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) expects to file cases against the illegal recruiters who convinced them into signing up to become an OFW abroad. It’s good to know that from initially thinking that they can only complain and cry about their problems, our fellowmen now have an idea that Filipinos can reach out to the Philippine embassy and Consulates and IACAT so these illegal recruitment system will be dealt with accordingly.

This serves as another reminder to everyone to make sure that you secure an employment visa first as travelling to the UAE under a tourist visa will have risks. Remember that it is illegal to work while under a visit visa/tourist visa.

MULA sa IYAKAN patungong IACAT: Pagdurusa ng 139 Pilipina nagwakas sa tulong ng Embahada sa UAE

24 Oktubre 2019 – Tinulungan ng Embahada ng Pilipinas sa UAE na makauwi sa Pilipinas ang 139 pang Pilipina na pansamantalang sumilong sa POLO-OWWA Center sa Abu Dhabi matapos maging biktima ng ilegal na recruitment. Pagdating sa Pilipinas, tututukan ng Inter-Agency Committee Against Trafficking (IACAT) ang mga kaso na kanilang isasampa laban sa mga illegal recruiters na nanloko sa kanila. Kung dati, akala ng ating mga kababayan ay wala silang magawa kundi iyakan ang kanilang problema, ngayon, alam nilang may Embahada at IACAT na aaksyon para sugpuin ang mga ito.
