Ban on deployment in Nigeria, Libya and South Sudan lifted

The POEA Governing Board has issued three resolutions lifting the ban on deployment to Nigeria, Libya and South Sudan and instructed the POEA to resume processing of documents of OFWs bound to the said countries.

Nigeria due to improved security conditions in the country and pending complete assessment from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Department Order No. 80-07, Series of 2007 was issued on 13 March 2007, which partially lifted the ban to allow the processing and deployment of returning Filipino workers to Nigeria who are on vacation and are going to work with the same employers in the same site.

Libya, in view of the improved security and political situation in the country and the clamor on both employers and employee affected by the deployment ban the DFA recommended on the Office of the President to lowering the crisis alert level.

South Sudan, due to the lower crisis alert level from Alert level 3 to Alert level 1.
