“The governing board of the [Philippine Overseas Employment Administration] came up with a resolution lifting the ban partially,” Bello said. The POEA has yet to release a copy of the resolution.

Skilled, semi-skilled and professional workers are now allowed to fly to the Gulf nation. Household service workers, however, are still covered by the prohibition.
