OFWs affected with the travel ban entitled to receive PHP10,000 financial assistance

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that the agency is ready to help the affected overseas Filipino workers in the imposed travel ban.

Those members of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) who are affected by the ban are entitled to receive PHP10,000 financial assistance amid the crisis.

“For those who are affected by the travel ban in Taiwan, we ask for your patience and in a few days, there will be a review. While waiting for the lifting of the ban, we are providing financial assistance,” Bello said.

OWWA also provides stranded OFWs with accommodation, food, and transportation assistance. Bello is hoping for a positive result of the assessment on the matter.

The DOH has recommended Taiwan's inclusion on the list of areas covered by a travel ban imposed by the Philippine government amid virus outbreak.
