Overseas Filipino workers hailed the ranking of the UAE as the safest place in the world, reflecting positive feedback from most residents and expats living and working in the country.

In its national agenda index in 2018, Lt General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chairman of Police and Public Security in Dubai, said that 96.1% of people living in the UAE feel safe to walk outdoors at night.

The UAE also beat Singapore, which came only second with 94 percent.

“Yes. It’s safe here. Kahit maglabas ka pa ng mamahaling phone. At nakasuot ng makapal aa gold. Kaliwali dito. Sa pinas baka wala pang 1 minute nahablot na sayo,” Anna Mendoza said in her comment on The Filipino Times Facebook.

[“Yes. It’s safe here. Even if you go out with high-end phone and wearing heavy gold jewelry. In the Philippines, you will lose everything in less than a minute,” Anna Mendoza said in her Facebook comment.]

Mary Cris Boreta Valiente, on the other hand, said that strict implementation of law was the key in providing security to UAE residents.

“Nine years na ko dito sa Dubai. Dami ko nakikita na may mga alahas, 2 CP (cellphone) hawak pero walang snatcher,” she said.

[“I’ve been in Dubai for nine years now, I always see people going around with jewelry and cellphones on both hands but no one will snatch their belongings,” she said.]

For their part, Marivic Oliveros and Chad Zaratan Fabiculanen said they “totally agree” that the UAE is a safe country.

I totally agree, I feel safer in UAE than in my own country, specially Manila,” said Oliveros.
Fabiculanen added: “Totoo ‘to. Nung nasa UAE ako 1am o 2am umuuwi pero wala akong worry kasi ramdam mong safe ka talaga di gaya dito sa Pinas anytime I feel unsafe.
[Fabiculanen added: “This is true. When I was in UAE, I come home 1-2 am but I didn’t have to worry because it feels safe, unlike back home.”
This is the same reason that Eidnas Alina Villacarlos echoed in her comment, saying this is why she wants to come back and work in the UAE.”
