Philippines imposes travel ban on OFWs traveling from red list countries


Amid the rising threat of the new Omnicron variant, the Philippine government has imposed a travel ban on overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) coming from red list countries. 

According to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), this is also due to the rise in Covid cases in countries included in the red list. 

It was earlier reported that all international flights from countries with cases of the new variant have been cancelled. 

“Since they are on the red list, all incoming flights are canceled and once all international flights are canceled, there will be no outbound flights as well. Our OFWs bound for these countries are barred from leaving as per IATF resolution,” he said. 

Only Filipinos returning to the country through government-initiated or non-government-initiated repatriation and Bayanihan Flights will be allowed entry subject to ‘the prevailing entry, testing, and quarantine protocols for ‘red list’ countries/jurisdictions/territories.’ 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
