DOLE Lifts Ban on Deployment of Filipino Workers to Qatar
By Ruben Del Rosario, President, Del Rosario Pandiphil Inc., June 21, 2017 (Issue 2017/10)

Due to the severance of the diplomatic ties by several Middle Eastern nations with Qatar, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) suspended the deployment of all Filipino workers to Doha last 7 June 2017. This move was to assess the situation and the impact that the diplomatic row would have on the nearly 240,000 Filipino workers in Qatar.

The POEA clarified that said ban had no effect on Filipino seafarers as their employment is sea-based. Nevertheless, the deployment ban has been lifted by the DOLE effective 15 June 2017 after re-assessing the situation in the gulf state.
