Starting August 20, 2016, stranded Filipino Overseas Workers (OFWs) in Saudi Arabia can return home for free. This is after the government of Saudi Arabia agrees to shoulder all cost of repatriation of almost 2,000 jobless Filipinos in the country.

After the meeting with Saudi Arabia Minister of Labor and Social Development Mofarrej Saad Alhoqubani, DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that the planned mass repatriation will begin on August 20, 2016 up to September 9, 2016 before the start of The Hajj in Saudi.

The Saudi government will shoulder all the cost of repatriation including airline tickets back to the Philippines. It also gives three options to stranded OFW in Saudi; 

1. To stay and find another employer in the country. 
2. Go Home. 
3. Stay with the company. 

To those OFWs who wants to claim their unpaid salaries and benefits, the Saudi government will provide lawyers while they are in Saudi and their cases will be handled by Public Attorney's Office and Philippine Overseas Labor Office when they arrived in the Philippines.
