Around 100,000 Filipinos Wait for Resumption of Deployment of Household Workers in UAE, According to DOLE

The Department of Labor and Employment said that around 100,000 Filipinos want to become household workers in UAE.

On Wednesday (March 3, 2021), Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III reported that over 100,000 Filipino people are waiting for the deployment of household service workers to the United Arab Emirates.

Bello said that the deployment of Filipino household workers is expected to resume by the end of March 2021. He explained that a lot of our countrymen want to work in UAE due to high salary and fair treatment for household workers.


The Labor secretary said that a lot of Filipino people are flying to UAE as tourists and usually changed their tourist visa to working visa just acquire a job. However, Bello said that UAE will only convert tourist visa to working visa after receiving the approval of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office.

“Ganun karami, now that they are offering the deployment to the United Arab Emirates. Kasi alam niyo maganda ang pay scale doon, maganda ang treatment sa household service workers, kaya nga despite the fact na wala tayong deployment doon, marami tayong mga kababayan na pumupunta doon as tourists. And from tourist visa, nagkakaroon ng change to working visa,” Bello said.
