PAPAYAGAN na ang overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) at mga turista sa Oman, ayon sa Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
“The Secretary wishes to announce that the Sultanate of Oman, effective today, is set to admit traveling Filipinos, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), and tourists likewise, are allowed to enter the Sultanate of Oman based on the communication sent him,” ayon kay DOLE spokesperson Rolly Francia.
Papayagan na rin ng Pilipinas ang mga taga-Oman na bumisita sa bansa subalit kailangang sundin ang protocols ng Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).
“So we will just wait. Although we had preliminary word that such will be lifted with the effectivity of the travel ban to other countries that will…that will end on September 5. The reciprocal decision of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration to lift the ban to Oman will be lifted also on the 5th of September,” dagdag pa niya.
Kasama ang Oman sa listahan ng mga bansang sakop ng travel ban na ipinatupad ng gobyerno ng Pilipinas, na may bisa hang-=gang Setyembre 5.
“So as soon as the new validity of that extension lapses then that will be the time that we will recipro-=cate with our own lifting of the ban through the POEA,” ani Francia. LIZA SORIANO
