MANILA – The Philippine Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is set to lift the temporary suspension of deployment of Filipino workers to Israel.
It will be a welcome move to Overseas Filipino Workers, particularly hotel and tourism employees, as well as caregivers in Israel, the DOLE chief said on Wednesday (July 7).
“Anytime now (it will be lifted). To our countrymen who want to go to Israel to work just wait because from our assessment it looks safe to deploy again,” DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello said.
Bello added that DOLE will coordinate with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) regarding the situation in Israel to ascertain the level of safety for Filipinos there.
The official said that around 1,000 Filipinos will be allowed to leave for work in Israel once the suspension of deployment is lifted.
The Philippines began a temporary deployment ban of Filipino workers to Israel in May following an escalation of tensions between Israeli troops and Hamas fighters. ICA/Expat Media
