DFA welcomes 175 OFWs from Kuwait who are beneficiaries of amnesty, repatriation program

-

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) continues to assist Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). Kuwait Airlines flight KU 1427 arrived with 175 Filipino repatriates on board. Our kababayans were beneficiaries of the amnesty and repatriation granted by the government of Kuwait. Also onboard were 7 infants, 14 children, and several expectant mothers.

The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging and Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) One Stop Shop at the Manila international airports continue to ensure that our repatriated nationals will soon be certified COVID-free and safely reunite with their loved ones.

Upon arrival at NAIA Terminal 2, the repatriates underwent thorough documentation and briefing on current safety protocols prescribed by the IATF-EID. They will be temporarily housed at a Bureau of Quarantine-approved facility for their mandatory quarantine while they undergo RT-PCR COVID-19 testing and await results.

Through coordination with the Department of Health – Bureau of Quarantine, Department of Labor – Overseas Workers’ Welfare Administration, Department of Transportation – Manila International Airports Authority and Philippine Coast Guard, Department of Tourism, Philippine National Police, and other members of the public sector, the DFA facilitates a safe and successful repatriation via a whole-of-government approach to ensure overseas Filipinos are out of harm’s way.

The DFA maintains its commitment to provide timely assistance to distressed overseas Filipinos affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
