Following President Duterte’s decision to totally ban deployment of Filipinos in Kuwait, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III is set to issue a new order on Monday.
Sec. Bello III confirmed that the President had instructed him to announce his decision which is apart from the previous order when the processing of new employment certificates was suspended.
“This time, what the president wanted is a total deployment ban.”
Apparently, those workers who are in vacation aside from those that are newly-hired will not be allowed to go Kuwait. However, it wasn’t clear if OFWs who are currently hired will be affected by the ban.
On Monday, the Department of Labor and Employment thru Sec. Bello III is expected to enlighten the workers regarding other details pertaining to the new order.
It was last Friday when President Duterte asked the Filipinos to go back to the Philippines within 72 hours and even asked the local airlines to arrange flights for their repatriation.
However, it wasn’t clear whether the time given will take effect the moment the new order will be released on Monday.
