“Ang IATF TWG ay inaatasan din na ayusin ang pamantayan para sa pagpapauwi ng mga OFW, land-based man o ‘yung mga sea-based,” he said.

The IATF earlier backed the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) proposal to unleash Php 1.5 billion financial aid meant to assist OFWs during the pandemic.

Affected OFWs will receive Php 10,000 peso worth one-time assistance provided that they will submit a certificate of employment issued by their respective agencies.
