Philippines lifts deployment ban of Filipino workers to Thailand
Manila - XINHUA
The Philippine government lifted Monday the deployment ban of Filipino workers to Thailand as the political situation in Thailand continues to normalize.
The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said that the Aquino administration also lowers its crisis alert level to the Southeast Asian country from level 2 to 1.
Under alert level 1, Filipinos in Thailand are advised to take necessary precautions, the department said.
"Given the continuing normalization of the political situation in Thailand, including the lifting of the curfew nationwide last June 13, Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. del Rosario lowered the crisis alert level from 2 to 1," the DFA said.
The ban on the deployment of overseas Filipino workers, whether returning or newly-hired, will also be lifted, it added.
