For OFWs who might be feeling confused about deployment ban in Kuwait, a post on social media was made by the previous Consul General to Kuwait to serve as a guide and clarification of the said issue.
In the official Facebook account of Mr. Raul Dado, he gave two points to address the concerns of the OFWs who are affected by the deployment ban.
Mr. Dado wrote:
OFW KUWAIT DEPLOYMENT BAN
TO THE NUMEROUS QUERIES ON WHO IS AFFECTED BY THE DEPLOYMENT BAN :
- The President has ordered the Department of Labor that the ban will only affect Household Workers coming for the first time to Kuwait, not visa 18 or working visa holders;
- Household workers already in Kuwait and who do not suffer problems or abuses can also stay in Kuwait.
Apparently, the post means that Kuwait can still hire skilled workers and those domestic helpers who are in a vacation and desire to go back can still work with their previous employers in Kuwait because they are not be covered by the deployment ban.
For everyone’s guidance.
Meanwhile, 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 Today Monday 12 of February 2018.
