POLO-Bahrain suspends accepting financial assistance application due to sudden surge


The Philippine Embassy in Bahrain announced that the Philippine Overseas and Labor Offices will temporarily suspend its on-site application for financial assistance or DOLE-AKAP for OFWs due to the rising number of applications.

“Due to sudden surge of applications for financial assistance for under the DOLE-AKAP for OFWs, POLO-Bahrain announces with regret the temporary suspension of the acceptance of on-site applications of OFWs in Bahrain,” the announcement read.

In a statement published on Facebook, it says that they have already closed the online application as of 5:30am of April 18 to avoid potential collapse of the system and taking into consideration the limited budget allocation for OFWs in the Kingdom.

“In the meantime, we will evaluate the applications so far received, and if warranted, we will re-open the online application system again. We appeal for the kind understanding of all concerned,” the advisory ended.
