House OKs bill extending travel perks to OFW dependents

The House of Representatives has approved on third and final reading a piece of legislation extending further assistance to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) by exempting their dependents from the travel tax and airport fee.

House Bill 6138, which seeks to amend Sections 3 and 35 of the Republic Act (RA) 8042, otherwise known as the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995, as amended by RA 10022, has been endorsed for Senate approval after the lower chamber voted 171 affirmative and zero negative.

The dependents of OFWs who are considered “solo parents” as defined under the Solo Parent’s Welfare Act of 2000 will be able to benefit from the measure.

Davao del Norte Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez, principal author of the bill, has earlier said the government has acted upon these OFWs privileges and protection as they provide significant contribution to the country’s revenue-raising effort and economic standing.

“This notwithstanding, there is still some void to fill as the so-called solo parent OFWs face some sort inequity in the field of taxation,” Alvarez said.
