A Sad Sound for Filipinos in UAE


As far as our experience, Filipinos are very kind, their overall record in UAE is respectable. UAE Government is trying their best to provide them same benefits that other nationalities are getting here in UAE, Such as:

Weekly day off, giving 30 days of annual paid leave, ensuring the right to retain personal documents including passport, ID card, work permit, rest of at least 12 hours a day, including 8 hours of continuous break, and no discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex or religion.


This will not just benefit the maids but also other Filipino nationals who are working as a Security guards, house cooks, drivers, gardeners and all other house hold workers.

The draft is already generated and is just waiting for a Sign, But the problem begin when someone get caught doing something illegal including Sex, living illegally and Run away cases.

It represent not just a person but whole country, and it was the only reason Bangladesh get banned here in UAE as well as in other Gulf Countries.

It is in Record that Dubai ATN section in 2016 paid $325,184 (1.19 million Dirham) for legal assistance to Filipinos who were involved in rape, murder, drug-related crimes, Labour cases including overstay, runaway, theft, forgery, breach of trust and few more cases.



Let’s come to the point….

Illegal affairs, dating, sex are among the top issues plaguing some Filipinos across UAE as stated in AL MAZAR Essential overseas Filipino workers Guide to the UAE.
As per AL MAZAR “engaging in premarital sex is not a crime in the Philippines, but in United Arab Emirates it is.
An official also reminded Filipinos in United Arab Emirates that: “Legalize your union or risk jail term, The reminder came when news of a sex out of wedlock case in the UAE made headlines in the Philippines last week. An appeal is under way for such case.

Mr. Paul Raymund Cortes a Consul General for Philippines said “I wish to remind all my fellow Filipinos in Dubai and the Northern Emirates that premarital sex and sex outside wedlock is against UAE law. It is punishable by 3 to 6 months imprisonment and eventual deportation,”

Although this fact is well known in the UAE, a number of couples still end up behind bars for this violation, not only Filipinos but also other nationalities.

The Attorney Barney Mr. ALMAZAR, a licensed UAE legal consultant and partner at Gulf Law who helps Filipinos, said the number of Filipinos who seek their legal advice on these matters have not changed over the years. But he said most of them only came to the UAE recently.

“Perhaps there are those who genuinely do not know about it. They are perhaps unaware that there are things we can do in the Philippines that we cannot do here since there are differences in the Philippine and UAE laws,” Almazar told Gulf News.

“My advice to single Filipino men and women who are in a relationship and have plans to live together in future to get married as soon as they can, so they can live as husband and wife. To those who are currently in extramarital (unlawful) relationships, end the existing relationship properly and once you are legally allowed to get married again, do it,” AL MAZAR said.


“It’s not just complying with the law, it’s also being fair with the other partner.”

The Assistance-To-Nationals Section of the Philippine Consulate provides help to Filipino expats in distress but there are limitations (limits) to what it can do. The government of Philippine has instituted a Legal Assistance Fund (LAF) to help overseas Filipinos for their litigation expenses, court fees, bail bonds etc., but there are some guidelines and conditions to follow.

Those who are entitled to LAF (Legal Assistance Fund) are Filipinos accused of murder (killing) or any case that has a sentence of life imprisonment or death.

Exceptional circumstances are taken into consideration depending on approvals from the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Manila office.
