More than 10,000 OFWs in Hong Kong, Macau remain stranded in Manila

More than 10,000 overseas Filipino workers (OFW) remain stranded in Manila and still unable to work for Hong Kong and Macau due to travel ban on air carriers.

The Philippine government already lifted the travel restriction for OFW because  they are holding tickets issued by local carriers Philippine Airlines [PAL], Cebu Pacific and AirAsia.

Airlines with flight to those countries will be subjected for quarantine when returning to Philippines and could be problem to airlines if that happens.

“The main reason is that local carriers PAL and Cebu Pac have not mounted flights to Hong Kong due to the procedural problem with the Bureau of Quarantine,” explained travel consultant Emmanuel Geslani.

Foreign airlines, either transiting or with regular scheduled flights to Hong Kong and Macau, however, are not covered by the ban.
