UAE: Stranded Filipinos to be repatriated from Dubai, Abu Dhabi

Special commercial flights will be operated to repatriate stranded Filipino expats in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, said a top official of the Philippine government.

Harry Roque, presidential spokesperson, said the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has allowed special commercial flights to bring home stranded Filipinos in Oman, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and other countries where there are travel restrictions imposed.

A Special Working Group (SWG) will be formed to determine the protocols for the special commercial flights, in coordination with the concerned airlines.

The special commercial flights, which must have prior approval from the SWG, shall likewise be exclusive for Filipinos, Roque said.
