Doha new destination for OFWs

Migrante-Qatar coordinator Jhon de Jesus said that Doha will be the new destination for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who are affected by the global economic crackdown.

He said that there are still job opportunities for Filipinos in Doha. Base on his observation, due to the continuous development and booming of several industries, Qatar will be the alternative destination for laid off OFWs in Dubai since.

“Qatar is still at its peak of development while opportunities in Dubai have already subsided because many infrastructure projects have already been completed that it just needs maintenance workers,” de Jesus said.

Meanwhile, the Labor Secretary advised retrenched OFWs in Dubai to submit their résumé to the labor attaché for possible transfer to Qatar, where there are 120,124 visa allocations for Filipino workers this year.

He also added that they will provide training, if need by OFWs, for them to transfer to other countries. If they already want to stay in the Philippines for good, the Department of Labor and Employment will provide them capital for livelihood activities.
