Visa amnesty for Filipino workers
The UAE government has urged undocumented Filipino workers to take advantage of the amnesty it is offering.
The Philippines’ Labor Secretary, Rosalinda Baldoz, said the UAE government has warned that undocumented workers should regularize their visas during the amnesty period of December 4, 2012 to February 3, 2013, or leave the country to avoid being penalized.
“Illegal UAE residents who have overstayed their visas can obtain exit passes and leave the country without penalty, or regularize their visas after payment of fines,” Baldoz said.
The UAE last implemented an amnesty for illegal residents in 2007. At least 341,958 illegal residents and 95,000 illegal workers from various countries took the opportunity to legalize their status that year.
