Philippine Consulate in Dubai to repatriate over 1,500 Filipinos affected by Covid-19 crisis

-

The Philippine Consulate General in Dubai has reportedly said that they are gearing to repatriate the over 1,500 Filipinos from the emirate to Dubai.

In an interview with Presidential Communications’ Facebook page, Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes said that at the moment, their top priority are those Filipinos who have valid tourist or visit visas as they only need a few requirements to fly back home.

As early as April this year, the consulate as well as the embassy posted on their Facebook pages about the repatriation program of the Philippine government.

Those who availed the program, added by Cortes, need to decide if they really want to go back to the Philippines because the flight tickets cannot be rebooked anymore.
