The Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) has removed the five-year deployment ban for the Federated States of Micronesia.

In an advisory released on Friday, DMW said it is lifting the total ban on the processing and deploying workers to the Federated States of Micronesia.

"The Philippine Consulate in Agana (Guam, USA), through the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), has issued a certificate of compliance for the Federated States of Micronesia with guarantees on the rights of foreign workers as specified under Section 3 of Republic Act 10022," the advisory read.

DMW, citing the assessment of the Post, said that Micronesia has existing labor and social laws and has ratified multilateral conventions related to the protection of migrant workers.

Additionally, the Post, according to DMW, has actively taken concrete measures to forge a bilateral labor agreement with the Philippines for the protection of overseas Filipino workers' rights in its territory.

"As such, the public is hereby informed that the total ban on the processing and deployment of workers to the Federated States of Micronesia is lifted," the statement read.

In September 2018, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) ordered a total deployment ban to the Federated States of Micronesia due to reports of abuses and maltreatment of OFWs nationwide.
