Dubai-bound OFWs impeded in NAIA due to fake travel documents


- Advertisment -

After presenting fake travel documents, the Philippines Bureau of Immigration (BI) impeded two overseas Filipino workers (OFW) bound in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. 

According to BI Commissioner Jaume Morente, the passenger attempted to board a plane on October 7. Yet, they presented fake identification cards and certificates of employment under an apparel company. 

“They initially told our secondary inspectors that an apparel company sent them to attend training as sales representatives in the UAE. However, our officers found inconsistencies in their statements,” Morente said.

Later on, the two OFWs showed their employment contracts as household service workers for an employer working in an apparel company. 

Morante warned illegal recruiters on sending OFWs abroad. 

“You are in full violation of the law, and this is punishable under the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act,” Morente said.
