Planning to work abroad? Make sure you will not be a victim of illegal recruitment


Do you have the plan to work abroad? Make sure you are transacting with legal recruitment agencies to avoid being a illegal recruiter, human trafficking and other crimes.  In the press release of the Bureau of Immigration dated January 19, 2017, it stated that the bureau has rescued 601 victims of illegal recruitment and 667 victims of human trafficking last year.  In addition with this, BI said they did not allow the departure of more than 45,000 passengers due to their failure to comply government's requirement for departing Filipino tourist under “Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) Revised Guidelines on Departure Formalities for International bound Passengers” (DOJ Memorandum Circular No. 36).

In addition with this, BI said they did not allow the departure of more than 45,000 passengers due to their failure to comply government's requirement for departing Filipino tourist under “Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) Revised Guidelines on Departure Formalities for International bound Passengers” (DOJ Memorandum Circular No. 36).





According to BI Commissioner Jaime H. Morente, immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and other ports will remain vigilant in screening departing Filipino travelers to make sure that they do not fall prey to human traffickers and illegal recruiters.

Statistics revealed that of the 111,947 referred for a secondary interview last year, about 66,631 of them were allowed to depart while 45,316 passengers’ departure were deferred.

They included 667 suspected human trafficking victims and 601 others believed to be victims of illegal recruiters who were immediately turned over to the IACAT for further investigation.

Base on the report from BI’s Travel Control and Enforcement Unit (TCEU), most of the passengers were found to have doubtful purposes in leaving the country.


Most of them reportedly carried fraudulent supporting travel documents while others misrepresented themselves and some had unverified employment visas.

The bulk of the passengers were bound for the Middle East, while there are few going to other countries in Asia and North America.
