PH Cracking Down on Visitor's Visas to Bahrain

The Philippine government is now screening Filipinos bound for Bahrain on visit visas to keep a check on undocumented workers, reports Gulf Daily News. The move follows a Philippine Embassy alert on the practice of many overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) traveling here on a visit visa, but later trying to convert them to work visas. They become undocumented if unsuccessful.
