Israel has been one of the countries that the Philippines have blended with well over the past couple of years. It is part of the reason why Filipinos who wish to visit Israel for a limited time, are not going to be required to secure a visa.
Just recently, Israel’s Ambassador to the Philippines made the announcement that around 1,000 jobs for Filipinos will be opened by the tourism sector of Israel. In addition to that, they said that this availability is going to happen in November of this year.
Since February 26, 1958, the Philippines and Israel made and signed a treaty of friendship that is existent up until now. Four (4) years after, Embassies in both Manila and Tel Aviv were made and established.
If you may have not noticed, Israel is just among the few countries in which Filipinos are not required to apply for visas; and that’s part of the reason.
Furthermore, our dearest President Rodrigo Duterte wants to tighten this relationship because Israel is one of the countries our archipelago can fully trust.
Last year, President Rodrigo Duterte paid a visit to Israel to fulfill a government-to-government agreement. Rafael Harpaz, Israel Ambassador, said that starting November, they will be offering somewhere around 1,000 jobs for Filipinos in the Middle Eastern country’s tourism.
In November, finally, we are going to start the process of having Filipinos coming to work in the tourism industry.”
In addition to that, Harpaz put emphasis during a business conference that the agreement of Jerusalem with Manila is actually the first (1st) of its kind; to give warm hospitality to Filipino and Filipino workers.
How will the hiring of the 1,000 jobs for Filipinos in Israel be?
All interested Filipinos should be aware of how the application and hiring process will be to ensure that they would undergo legitimate government-to-government transactions. In addition to that, Israel also wishes not to deal with middle companies as they can be intrusive in both parties.
This is why the hiring of workers would be through the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
Contract for Filipino workers in Israel
According to Ambassador Harpaz, the contracts for workers would span in approximately (five) 5 years.
Moreover, Harpaz greatly approved and was clearly impressed by the attitude and work ethics of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). He continued to say that he and his countrymen enjoy working with Filipinos.
Filipinos are the best in Israel. Why do we love so much the Filipinos? Because you have the best service, you’re friendly and we have a wonderful experience with the caregivers that take care of our most beloved people.”
As expected, the start of the hiring would be by November. Harpaz said that he is hoping to witness and see the very first (1st) batch of Filipino workers by December of this year.
It’s another good news that by Christmas, I hope the first Filipino will go with visa to work in tourism. That would be history.”
What Harpaz meant is that he is rooting to see the first (1st) Filipino to have a visa to work in their country for their country’s tourism.
Filipinos can stay visa-free in Israel if they are going to stay for only up to ninety-days (90). Should a Filipino be interested in working, they would need to secure visa for Israel; provided that the POEA is there to guide them.
So to all Filipinos who wish or plan to work outside the country, here’s your chance! Around 1,000 jobs for Filipinos will be opened by Israel to be able to accommodate Filipino workers in their country.
What are you waiting for? Israel is opening around 1,000 jobs for Filipinos and you might just be one of the lucky thousand to be the first batch to be sent to Israel to work in their tourism industry.
