Afghanistan

A total ban on the deployment of Filipino workers in Afghanistan took effect in 2007.

Iraq

OFWs were prohibited from going to Iraq in 2004 after a series of suicide bomb attacks and the abduction of Filipino truck driver Angelo Dela Cruz.

Jordan

Reports of widespread abuses against Filipino workers prompted the government to stop sending OFWs there in January 2008.

Lebanon

Following the war between Israeli and Hezbollah forces in 2006, Filipino workers were barred from entering Lebanon in June 2007.

Nigeria

Deployment ban in this country was implemented in December 2007 due to kidnappings and civil unrest in the Niger Delta.

Several OFWs have protested the imposition of the deployment ban on these countries. But some workers sneak into these conflict areas using fake documents.- GMANews.TV
