380 OFWs fly from UAE on first repatriation flight paid by Philippine government


A top official from the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai confirmed that some 380 displaced Filipinos in UAE benefit from the first repatriation flight mounted by the Philippines government. 

According to Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes, these Filipinos have emailed them about their situation and have already decided to leave the host country and fly to the Philippines for good on the night of June 14. 

Many of these returning Filipinos were on tourist and visit visas, while others have also been cancelled quite some time before. 

Meanwhile, some of them have medical conditions. 

“This is the first time… this repatriation from the UAE is sponsored by the Philippines. Ibig sabihin wala silang bayad yung mga na-i-repatriate natin,” he told The Global Filipino Magazine.
