MECO in total effort to bring in OFWs to Taiwan

Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) said that it is making every effort to obtain Taiwan's permission for the entry of migrant workers from its country.

"No effort is spared to hasten the reopening of Taiwan's door to Filipino workers," MECO said.

The requirements set by Taiwan's government for the return of Filipino migrant workers have been forwarded to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in Manila, according to MECO.

Its statements came after opening its borders again to Indonesian migrant workers with immediate effect, while negotiations were underway with the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

The requirements include accreditation of COVID-19 testing centers in Manila, several rounds of negative COVID-19 tests prior to employment in Taiwan, and designation of quarantine facilities.

"We know how difficult it is for those stranded in the Philippines," Cesar Chavez Jr., said, a labor attaché at the office. "However, there are still policy issues to be settled first."

There were 690,025 migrant workers in Taiwan, with Indonesia having the largest migrant workers followed by Vietnam, Philippines then Thailand.
