Around 300 Filipinos will be flying out of Kuwait today



Around 300 Filipinos will be flying out of Kuwait today as part of the government of Kuwait’s intent to fast track the deportation of inmates and reduce the over crowding in their jails and safe house shelters.

151 women and 16 men from the Talha deportation centre, 41 runaway maids at the Philippine embassy, 91 illegal Filipinos who turned themselves in to the Public Authority for Manpower were cleared for deportation and were waiting to board their flight at Terminal 4 which is scheduled to take off at 1.30 pm today. The deportation is being done in coordination with the Philippine embassy and POLO OWWA.

Philippines had earlier made a conditional acceptance for their nationals return citing a requirement of a PCR health certificate, which would make it known that they were coronavirus free. The Kuwait government had arranged the flight and is bearing all the expenses of travel of the deportees.Several deportees from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and India are also waiting to be deported from Kuwait as soon as their governments give clearance for their travel back home.
