More Than 1,500 OFWs Served During POLO Special Service In Dubai

It was a productive day for the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Dubai (POLO-Dubai), United Arab Emirates as it served a total of 1,557 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) from Dubai and the Northern Emirates during the POLO’s OFW One-Stop Shop Special Services on September 18, 2022 (Saturday).

With an initial 1,000 OFWs confirmed registrants for the event, this target number was even exceeded as some walk-in clients were also accommodated during the one-day Special POLO Service. 

The activity promptly started at 9:00 in the morning and ended at 3:00 in the afternoon with all OFW attendees having a smile on their faces as they were able to avail of their needed service on a weekend. The POLO offered Contract Verification, OWWA, SSS, and PAG-IBIG membership services during the event. Six hundred twelve (612) OFWs had their employment contract verified, 495 renewed their OWWA membership, 247 paid SSS contributions, and 203 availed of PAG-IBIG membership service. 

The activity was conducted in partnership with the Filipino Social Club in Dubai, a Filipino Community in Dubai which proactively supports community engagement programs of the Philippine and UAE governments headed by President Ericsson Reyes.

The number of OFWs clients in this one-day service now raises the total OFWs assisted in various Special POLO Services this year to 4,347. Another Special POLO Service will be conducted on September 25, 2022, in collaboration with FilUHR, an association of Filipino HR practitioners in Dubai.
