Learn the story behind the first and only Filipino Migrants Information Portal in Ireland

Filipino Migrants Information Centre Ireland

Thank you for visiting the Filipino Migrants Information Centre Ireland, a website developed by the Philippine Consulate Dublin in partnership with the Philippine Overseas Labor Office-Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (POLO-OWWA). This website aims to provide as much information to help all Filipino migrants settle in Ireland.

This website is a result of a Focus Group Discussion on Migrant Work Issues organised by Outreach Ireland. Philippine Labor Attaché ASec Amuerfina R. Reyes and OWWA Welfare Officer Connie Marquez visited Ireland on 26th of April 2019 to discuss work issues in the healthcare, hospitality, IT, accounting, engineering, construction and recruitment sectors in Ireland.

The main issues raised by 15 professionals from the Filipino and Irish community were:

  1. 1. the need to have a Philippine government entity in Ireland that can address Filipino work-related concerns
  3. 2. a reliable knowledge resource centre for Filipino migrant workers to help them settle and integrate in Ireland, and
  5. 3. the institutionalisation of Filipino and Irish labour policies or bilateral agreements in order to address the skills shortages in Ireland which Filipino workers can fill in.

The group that met, which was composed of barristers at law, senior level nurses and health care professionals, immigration and technology consultants, recruiters and business owners, is now the Committee that will help address labour issues and relations between Ireland and the Philippines. It will continue to work together to accomplish clearly defined tasks following a prescribed timeline.
