Lift overseas employment ban for filipino nurses

This petition made change with 19,664 supporters!

Given the increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines, we understand that the government is in need of nurses who are capable of volunteering. We are writing this letter in order to voice out our sentiments regarding the suspension of the deployment of all Health Care Workers until the National State of Emergency is lifted. Our sentiments coincide with the following reasons below:

1. Most of us (nurses) already have visa and scheduled flights prior to the start of Enhanced Community Quarantine. Please note that the validity of our visa can affect our deployment status.

2. Nurses who applied abroad have spent most of their time, effort and money to comply on the needed requirements so they can immediately work abroad.

3. Most nurses already waited long enough for them to be deployed so they can provide financial support to their families.

Despite the Government offering us an allowance of P500 daily as compensation for volunteering, we are still looking forward for the deployment abroad due to the compensation that they are capable of giving.

We are hoping that this resolution will be reassessed, and that there will be a flexibility on the restrictions previously imposed. Furthermore, we hope that the government will be just to acknowledge the sentiments of the nurses who opted to work abroad
