Came across this interesting information from one of Filipino newspapers circulated locally; The Essential OFW Guide to UAE. Authored by Atty. Barney Almazar, holder of UAE legal consultancy licence and highly endorsed by Ambassador Grace Princesa, it is the first and only guidebook dedicated to the Filipino Community in the UAE. This 150-page book contains all the info every OFW needs to know while in the country. Some of the practical guides featured in this book are:
- restructuring loans
- property investments/other investments
- dealing with the banks
- getting child support
- resolving employment disputes
- setting up your own business
- formalities in marrying a foreigner
- defending police or civil case
- registering marriage and birth
- sponsoring family visa
- online renewal of passport
- filing for divorce and annulment
The guidebook will be launched initially during this year’s Philippines Independence Day Celebration in Abu Dhabi, and will be accordingly distributed to those OFWs who have reserved their copies. To RESERVE your FREE copy, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org . I have already sent them an email to reserve mine; they’ve acknowledged and sent me a reply.
