FYI lang po. From news article in the Manila bulletin last July 3: Vatican, 18 Others Unsafe For OFWs
The city-state of Vatican is among 19 destinations that have yet to be certified as safe by the DFA for OFW deployment, DOLE said yesterday. Labor secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said that aside from Vatican City, the other areas are: Afghanistan, Chad, Cuba, North Korea, Eritrea, Haiti, Iraq, Lebanon, LIBYA, Mali, Mauritania, Nepal, Niger, Palestine, Somalia, Uzbekistan, zimbabwe, and Monaco. Of these 19 countries, she said, the Board has yet to receive the certifications for the Vatican and Monaco, WHILE THE CERTIFICATIONS FOR LIBYA AND IRAQ ARE CURRENTLY BEING REVIEWED in the light of latest developments that may lead to the amendment of their respective certifications. The POEA Governing Board notes that THE DFA HAS YET TO COMPLETE THE REVIEW OF ITS PREVIOUS CERTIFICATIONS ISSUED FOR IRAQ AND LIBYA, Baldoz said.
Hopefully in 1-2 months ok na
you've missed one important spot sa news article po, i-add ko lng po
â€œWith respect to Iraq and Libya, thereâ€™s a review especially Libya. Iraq is still subject to a security alert level so thereâ€™s still a total deployment ban for Iraq except for Kurdistan,â€ Cacdac said.
â€œIn Libya, deployment is ongoing so while we are awaiting the review of the DFA, the status quo will continue,â€ he added.
no need to wait 1-2 mos. na po, kc sabi the status quo will continue, so since ongoing na ang deployment 2loy 2loy na po un until further advise from DFA to either withhold or permanently amend the status quo order para wala ng hassle..
