DUBAI – A ban on Filipino housemaids traveling for work to the UAE has been lifted, with deployment of Filipino domestic workers to resume on April 1, authorities announced on Tuesday (March 2).
According to the UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), this comes after a “series of meetings held I the Philippines between a delegate from MOHRE and senior Filipino officials”.
“It was announced that starting April, the UAE will import domestic workers from the Philippines through the officially authorised channels in both countries,” according to MOHRE.
The Philippine Department of Labor and Employment also made a similar announcement on Tuesday.
The Philippine government has suspended the deployment of Filipino domestic workers to the UAE since 2014, refusing to allow nationals to leave to the UAE until a new work agreement is signed.
The Philippines has demanded that work contracts that will be approved by both countries to guarantee the salary and rights of Filipino employees. ICA/Expat Media
