After partially lifting the deployment ban to Libya, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) reiterated that there are still 22 countries where overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) deployment is prohibited.

These countries are off-limits for OFWs due to their unstable safety and economic situations, and their failure to attain certification from the Department of Foreign Affairs.

POEA Administrator Bernard Olalia also said that OFWs, especially domestic helpers, face the risk of abuse in these countries.

“We are not deploying OFWs to countries where there is high risk on the security of our OFWs, particularly where the alert level is big as certified by the DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs),” Olalia told The Manila Times.

Countries that are deemed dangerous for OFWs are as follows:

Afghanistan
Somalia
Sudan (except Khartoum and the Kenana Sugar Plantation)
Rwanda
Burundi
Syria
Yemen
Iraq
Chechnya Republic
South Sudan
Iraqi Kurdistan region
Ukraine
Chad
Cuba
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)
Haiti
Mali
Mauritania
Niger
Palestine
Somalia
