Ano ba requirements para maging OFW?
« on: May 13, 2012, 06:12:00 PM »
I am preparing myself emotionally, financially and physically the challenges of becoming OFW... Does anyone here know any guidelines or preparedness program sa mga gusto maging OFW?

Ano ba normally ang ginagawa bago ka maging OFW?

Nung nag apply po ako as seaman, nag undergo po ako ng rigorous training sa MERALCO, iba pa eto sa training ko sa Ramon Magsaysay sa barko at bukod dyan bachelors degree pa ako ng Electrical Engineer.

Nag apply din ako VISA for US. Pero eto shoulder eto ng Employer ko. Awa naman ng Dios at nakapasa. Ngayon every year may contract ako

Gaano katagal po ang visa na binigay sayo Ken312?

So wala ka talagang ginastos ni singko wala ? bakit yung isang kamag-anak ko nagbayad pa sila ng 200,000 para lang makaalis?

if mag aapply po kayo na maging OFW, aware lang sana kayo about yung mga diseases na dinedeny ng POEA. May mga nababalitaan kasi ako na meron na applicant na nag aapply tapos nadeny at naging unfit for work dahil nadiscover nya na HIV+ pala sya based sa findings ng clinic.

For reference, you may refer on the list below:

==================================================

What Kind of Diseases Make OFWs Unfit to Work?

Employers have to make sure that all their workers are in good physical condition. A healthy worker is considered an asset in the workplace because the fact that they are free of diseases assures the excellent quality of their work performance.


For this reason, all overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) go through a rigorous medical examination before their employment documents can be processed. Patients who are diagnosed with a disease face the risk of being stamped unfit to work, and lose the opportunity to work abroad.

It is therefore important to be aware of the list of diseases that would make OFWs unfit to work in Gulf countries. This was recently announced by the Gulf Cooperation Council-(GCC) Accredited Medical Clinics Association (Gamca). The OFWs and other foreign workers from other Asian countries are required to pass the medical tests conducted only by Gamca clinics.



Countries included in the GCC are the following: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.  The list of diseases that make OFWs unfit to work in GCC countries are the following:

Infectious category
HIV/AIDS reactive
Hepatitis B surface antifgen, HCV reactive
Microfilaria positive and malaria blood film positive, known leprosy patients
Tuberculosis – any type, X-ray showing active PTB, past evidence of PTB or healed • Pulmonary scar, including minimum fibrosis, calcification (granuloma) pleural thickening, pleural effusion, tuberculosis lymphadenitis
VDRL/TPHA reactive

Non-infectious category
Chronic renal failure
Chronic hepatitis failure
Congestive heart failure
Hypertension
Diabetes mellitus
Known case of cancer
Psychiatric disease and neurological disorders
Physical disabilities, i.e. color blindness, deafness
