The Department of Foreign Affairs’ Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers’ Affairs (DFA OUMWA) said that some 4,500 Filipinos in the UAE have been scheduled to be repatriated to the Philippines before July 1. 

The agency has already facilitated the return of 20,149 land-based displaced OFWs and other overseas Filipinos, and has helped 28,419 sea-based OFWs. 

DFA expects this figure to rise to more than 50,000 by the end of June.

So far, 2,570 Filipinos from UAE have been repatriated. The number is expected to rise with 14 more flights that will bring around 4,500 more OFWs back home from the host country.
