MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Labor and Employment has suspended the issuance of work permits for foreigners in Boracay until the six-month closure to tourism ends. In an advisory, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello said the agency would also cease accepting applications for renewal of alien employment permits (AEP), although foreigners who are commissioned or authorized by the Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force and those with permanent or probationary resident visa are exempted. “The exemption also includes foreign nationals who come to Boracay to conduct research studies or undertake work related to the island’s rehabilitation,” he said.
