POEA allows Filipino workers to go home, return to Libya
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has allowed the issuance of overseas employment certificate (OEC) or exit clearance to Filipino workers who intend to go home to the Philippines and return to their jobs in Libya on certain conditions.
The POEA governing board chaired by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, issued GB Resolution No. 12, Series of 2019, which authorizes the processing and issuance of OECs to Filipinos presently working in Tripoli and other areas within the 100-kilometer radius of the capital, given that they have secured a certificate of conditional exemption from the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli.
The resolution was issued upon the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). The conditional exemption will be based on humanitarian grounds as determined by the DFA. —TINA G. SANTOS
