A February 24, 2012 press release from the Department of Foreign Affairs
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reminds Fiipinos seeking for employment in Egypt, and the general public to obtain a working visa/permit prior to departure.
The public is advised not to believe recruiters who are offering tourist visas, which could allegedly be converted to a work permit upon arrival in Egypt. Irregular workers or those who do not have proper documents do not have the same rights as regular ones and could become victims of abuse or unlawful practices. Penalties may also be imposed by the Egyptian government on all violators.
The public is encouraged to apply through agencies accredited by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and to abide by all the rules and regulations of both the Philippines and the host country.
