- Advertisment -

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) brought home 82 Filipinos from Italy on board a government paid chartered flight today. 73 of the Filipinos were from Milan while 9 were from Rome. The Philippine Embassy in Rome and Consulate General in Milan arranged their repatriation.

Prior to departure from Italy, the Embassy and Consulate General ensured that the repatriates were certified fit to travel and clear of COVID-19.

Capping today’s repatriations, the DFA welcomed 27 OFWs returning on a Qatar Airlines flight. They were composed of 24 Filipino seafarers of MSC Magnifica and one seafarer of MSC Taranto, both ships declared free of COVID-19 by French health authorities. Two OFWs from Islamabad also joined the flight.

Upon disembarkation, all the Filipino repatriates underwent health assessments by the Department of Health (DOH) – Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ). After processing at the government’s One Stop Shop, they were then transported to their respective government approved facility-quarantines.

Under the whole-of-nation approach, these repatriations were made possible through the continuous cooperation of our partner agencies, DOH-BOQ, DOH-BIHC, OWWA, DOLE, DOTr, PCG, MIAA, with the assistance of Philippine Embassies and Consulates, as well as the active involvement of the private sector.
