UAE: Pinoys on visit visa, OFWs with no pending case eligible for repatriation program


- Advertisment -

A top official from the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi bared the individuals who are eligible for the repatriation program amid the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Maford Angeles, Consul General in Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi, said among the sectors that are eligible for the program are Filipinos on tourist or visit visas who didn’t change their visa status. 

“[Kasama yung] mga tourist [at visit] visas na hindi nag-change ng visa status na pumunta ng UAE para makapiling ang kamag-anak na dito naka-stay. Technically, sila po ay stranded, therefore, sila po ay eligible para makauwi,” Angeles said in a video posted on the official Facebook page of the Philippine Embassy in UAE. 

Filipinos who don’t have pending cases and liabilities in UAE are also eligible to be part of the Philippine’s repatriation program in the host country. 

The Filipino official also warned those who are attempting to leave the country with pending cases that the authorities will know about it. 

“Kung kayo po ay may mga kaso pa, kahit po kayo ay bumili ng ticket at makapasok doon sa boarding, kayo po ay haharangin ng immigration,” he added. 

If one has a pending case, Angeles urged them to coordinate with the Philippine Embassy so they can help to resolve their problems. 

The Embassy can be reached at +971508137836 thru call, SMS, or WhatsApp.
