UAE Grants Amnesty to Illegal OFWs Until Feb

Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in United Arab Emirates (UAE) that are overstaying, with expired visas or no proper documents can now correct their status because of the current amnesty program of UAE for expatriates. Those interested can avail this only until February 4.

Rosalinda Baldoz, Labor Secretary encouraged Filipinos to take advantage the amnesty that is given by the UAE government to its illegal residents. Gerry Suliguin, Philippine Vice Consul stressed that Filipinos should do this before the deadline set by the UAE government because no extension would happen after February 4.

Suliguin said, “If they are caught after February 4, they will be facing cases in accordance with the UAE laws and will be fined and penalized.”

The amnesty program started last December 4 and after February 4, the government of UAE would not exempt anyone who fails to avail it.

After February 4, those who fail to apply for amnesty would be considered illegal by UAE officials and they may be prosecuted.

Suguin said that one can apply for amnesty at Al Aweer Follow Up and Investigation Center from 8am to 8pm. The center will accommodate male applicants from Sunday to Wednesday while female applicants can go from Sunday to Thursday.
