The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced Thursday it has sought the lifting of temporary travel ban to Taiwan.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello said he already asked Department of Health (DOH) to reconsider its ban on departing overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to Taiwan.

“For those who are affected by the travel ban in Taiwan, we ask for your patience and in a few days, there will be a review. While waiting for the lifting of the ban, we are providing financial assistance,” Bello said.

The Labor chief said that members of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) who are affected by the ban will receive P10,000 worth financial assistance.

He also asked for stranded workers for patience as they wait for the outcome of the review.

“We are seeking understanding from our OFWs because the implementation of a temporary ban by the DOH is for your own safety as well. We hope for a possible lifting of the ban in a few days,” Bello said.
