Bahrain wants more than 16,000 OFWs While Qatar to Open 6,000 Jobs in the Philippines

Bahrain is in need of more Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) but the very slow processing affects the deployment of the OFWs in the said country.  According to Secretary Silvestre Bello III of Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), this issue was brought up to him by the assistant labor secretary of Bahrain in their meeting.  In the Philippines he said, it takes about six weeks to process the deployment of the migrant workers, considered a very slow compared to the case of Indonesia and India who can send migrants workers in a matter of two weeks.

Bahrain is in need of more Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) but the very slow processing affects the deployment of the OFWs in the said country.

According to Secretary Silvestre Bello III of Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), this issue was brought up to him by the assistant labor secretary of Bahrain in their meeting.

In the Philippines he said, it takes about six weeks to process the deployment of the migrant workers, considered a very slow compared to the case of Indonesia and India who can send migrants workers in a matter of two weeks.


“So on that premise, I told the assistant secretary of labor: ‘Let us prepare an agreement and we will reduce the processing from six weeks to one week. He almost jumped with joy and he promised to go to the Philippines on May 8 where they expect to sign a memorandum of agreement regarding the deployment of our overseas workers.”

“Not only in Bahrain but in the whole world, I think,” said Bello. ” (Bahrain’s assistant secretary of labor) noted the competence, the patience, and the trustworthiness of our overseas workers.”

“That is the positive development,” he added. “They want to get more but we have now 16,000 OFWs in a population of 1.3-m. So that is a very substantial role that we have, the presence of our OFWs.”

Based on this, the labor chief said it is clear that Bahrain prefers Filipino migrant workers.
