POEA Imposed Deployment Ban on Syria

No more newly–hired Filipino workers will be allowed to go to Syria to work for now as the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) announced a deployment ban on the said country.

The deployment ban was issued after the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) raised the crisis alert to level 2 to Syria. However, the deployment ban does not cover returning workers to Syria. The crisis alert level 2 in Syria means restriction of movement in Syria, which includes avoiding large crowds and areas of protest. It also encourages Filipinos to voluntarily relocate or leave at their own cost if they have no pressing need to remain. Non-essential and non-urgent travel is discouraged, including travel for tourism purposes.
