PH official in Dubai reveals sectors being prioritized on repatriation program

-

A top official from the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai and the Northern Emirates revealed the sectors they are prioritizing on the ongoing repatriation program amid the Covid-19 pandemic. 

In a video interview with Rachel Salinel, Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes said the currently they are prioritizing those on tourist or visit visas who don’t have the means to sustain themselves amid the pandemic. 

“Inuuna natin currently [yung mga naka-] tourist or visit [visa] dahil alam nating ang mga ito at walang way na i-sustain yung pag lagi nila dito sa UAE,” he said. 

He also added that those Filipinos who have medical conditions and pregnant women on 31 to 31 weeks are also being prioritized for the program which allows OFWs to fly back home on a flight paid by the Philippine government. 

“Syempre, pina-prioritize din natin ang mga senior citizens natin lalong lalo na yung mga merong medical conditions, and of course, minors and children, infants particularly,” Cortes added.
