MANILA, Philippines — Another batch of Filipino repatriates, this time six from Lebanon, have arrived in the Philippines, said the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW).

DMW, in a text message to reporters, said the Filipino workers arrived early morning of November 3 at the NAIA Terminal 3 via Emirate Airways flight EK336.


“The six were led to the Bureau of Quarantine station for initial physical and medical check-up,” said DMW Spokesperson Toby Nebrida on Friday.


Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Undersecretary Eduardo de Vega initially told reporters that these six Lebanon-based Filipinos are set to arrive in the country on Saturday, November 4.

Data from the DFA likewise showed that there are 162 Filipinos in Lebanon who want to be repatriated.

The DFA earlier raised the crisis alert level in Lebanon to 3, advising Filipinos to consider leaving the area to avoid getting trapped in the clashes between Hezbollah militants and Israeli troops.
