No Filipinas Are Allowed to Work As Entertainers In Turkey

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) issued an advisory for Filipinas not to accept job offers as entertainers in Turkey.

According to their website, the POEA is not processing employment documents of Overseas Performing Artists (OPAs) to Turkey and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is not keen on allowing their deployment due to lack of established protective and monitoring mechanisms.

DOLE Secretary Marianito D. Roque said deployment of OPAs shall be allowed only in the presence of a bilateral agreement between the Philippines and Turkey to assure protection of Filipino workers in that country.

It will be noted that Filipinas are finding alternative countries to work as entertainers ever since the Japanese lowered the number of Filipina entertainers in Japan.
