POEA Imposes Total Ban for Deployment of OFWs at Yemen

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Governing Board executed a resolution (GBR No. 3 Series of 2015) to impose a total ban on the processing and deployment of all overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) bound for Yemen.

 

The instruction was made as the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has raised the Crisis Alert Level in Yemen from Level 3 to Level 4 last February 16, 2015 due to security situation in the country which remains unpredictable. Under Alert Level 4, a total ban on the processing and deployment of OFWs and mandatory repatriation will be imposed.
