    • Kung magkaroon man ng problema sa ministry of labor tungkol sa sitwasyong iba ang visa sa ginagampanan mo, hindi ikaw ang mananagot niyan kundi ang kumpanya sa paglabag nito ng Artikulo 38. An employer may not employ the worker in a profession other than the one specified in his work permit.

Salamat po

    • Sa Saudi ARabia, mahigpit na ipinatutupad ng mga hospitals and or clinics sa kanilang mga Filipino nursing employees ang PRC license. Just contact the hospital/company na nagbigay sa iyo ng offer baka naman may special privilege ka sa kanila at puwdeng exempted ka sa requirement.
