According to Sanchez, those who have experienced working in Kuwait who wishes to apply to these alternative markets will have a high probability to get the job.
Meanwhile, the deployment ban to Kuwait for newly hired workers has not been lifted yet and could be lifted once both parties would agree on the parameters for the worker’s protection.
“We’re pushing for much more. And then nung umpisa, the Kuwaiti government was showing that those are in the agreement so we’re asking for practical or pragmatic applications,” Cayetano said.
POEA reminded job seekers to check the validity of the recruitment agencies and job orders through POEA website.
