More jobs for OFWs in Norway and Qatar

The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) Secretary Marianito Roque said that Norway is still hiring Filipino workers particularly engineering and information technology professionals while Qatar has 99,000 open for technical and engineering expertise.

According to the Labor Secretary only 26,000 positions have been filled up out of 125,000 work visas allotted for Filipino workers in Qatar since the country has opened its labor market for Filipino to meet the demands in construction works and in the oil fields.

While for OFWs who wants to apply in Norway, they can go directly in the country to apply for a job seeker visa.

“They allow people to go there as job seekers,” Roque said.

Roque stressed that this was a good set-up since job seekers actually have all the opportunity to choose which workplace is best for them.
