The Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in the Sultanate of Oman yesterday reported the hiring of medical workers in private clinics and hospitals under the contract visa of three months for the purpose of taking the pro-metric examination and interview being conducted by the Ministry of Health of Oman. Labor Attaché Nasser Mustafa of POLO Oman, in his report to DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz, announced the minimum qualifications of medical workers and the prevailing benefits in the private clinics and hospitals under the contract visa of 3 months for the purpose of taking the pro-metric examination and interview. Mustafa said applicants must be registered Medical Workers, with at least 2 years work experience, and below 45 years of age. The benefits include free accommodation, free transportation, and return ticket to the medical worker’s hometown. Dr. Sami N. Khasawneh, Group Medical Director of Euro-Arabian Specialist Dental Center, in his letter to the Philippine Labor Attaché office in Oman, said that as required by the Sultanate of Oman’s Ministry of Health (MOH) and Immigration and Labor Office, all health-related professionals are required to pass the MOH examination before being issued with a working resident permit. Thereafter, they will be issued with Contract Visa which is valid for two months and will enable them to take the written and oral examination. In case they fail, their visa can be extended for a month. Labor Attaché Mustafa recommends to have an employment contract for three months to be able to have allowance/salaries. Baldoz commended Labor Attaché Mustafa for his report, but warned Filipino medical workers interested in the opportunity not to be duped by illegal recruiters, advising them to only deal with legitimate and POEA-licensed agencies.
