OWWA, needs to pay as much as P1Billion to hotels used as quarantine facilities by OFWs

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) owes up to P1 billion to hotels used as quarantine facilities by returning overseas Filipino workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to OWWA administrator Hans Leo Cacdac, they have already talked to the Philippine Hotel Owners Association (PHOA) about the said debt.

It has not been paid yet because the funds are still awaited from the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).

According to Cacdac, OWWA has P11.4 billion in the DBM. Since 2020, the government has reportedly spent up to P20 billion on hotel accommodation for OFWs.

Cacdac also clarified to the hotel lovers that they will continue to pay even during the election.
