The Department of Labor and Employment has reserved 2,500 seats for stranded Filipino workers who will be coming home after being granted amnesty by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) will be shouldering the plane fares of the OFWs who will be coming home this month.

The OFW’s will be flying home on different dates this month on commercial flights, instead of the original plan to charter flights, according to Labour Undersecretary Dominador Say. While 2,500 seats have been reserved, the DOLE is expecting more OFWs to avail of the amnesty and come home.
