Department of Foreign Affairs

Department of Foreign Affairs

Department of Foreign Affairs  had its auspicious beginnings when President Emilio Aguinaldo appointed Apolinario Mabini as the Republic’s first Secretary of Foreign Affairs on 23 June 1898, eleven days after the declaration of Philippine independence at Kawit, Cavite. In effect, the DFA became the first government department set up by following the establishment of the First Philippine Republic in Malolos, Bulacan. Realizing the need for international recognition to support the legitimacy of his government, Aguinaldo assigned Mabini the difficult task of establishing diplomatic relations with friendly countries. Members of the Hong Kong Junta, a group of Filipino exiles in Hong Kong, served as the country’s envoys for this purpose.

    • Nit,

      Basahin mo ang iyong kontrata at alamin kung ano ang nakasaad tungkol sa tiket mo pauwi kung natapos mo na iyong kontrata.

      It is clear in SLL Art. 40.1 that “the employer must bear the cost of the return plane ticket to the worker’s home country at the end of the relation between the two parties”.

      Ang ginawa po sa inyo ng iyong employer ay pure harassment dahil bigla ka nalang pinahinto sa trabaho na walang kaukolang abiso ng matanggap nila ang iyong sulat notisya.

      Tungkol naman po sa sinabi mong may pinirmahan ka, dapat po tayong mga OFW ay hindi basta basta lang pipirma na hindi alam or hindi naunawaan ang nakasaad sa pinirmahang dokumento. Kung sakali man na totoo ang sinabi ng iyong employer na ang pinirmahan mo ay tungkol sa iyong sahod at ticket, maaaring naloko ka sa puntong ito.

      Dumolog ka sa ating POLO Riyadh at dalhin ang iyong kontrata at ang kopya ng sulat na iyong pinirmahan upang ma-guide ka sa tama mong gawin.
