Hong Kong has been one of the most popular overseas countries of employment for Filipinos as over 100, 000 Filipinos are currently working there and mostly are working as domestic helpers. Hong Kong has been continuously hiring OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) to work for their companies or houses for Filipinos are known for being dependable, hard working, reliable, and caring people. Thus, recruitment agencies for Hong Kong are everywhere.
Same with any other countries, Filipinos applying in Hong Kong while on their tourist visa are not encouraged for both security and legal reasons. Our government in the Philippines has been warning everyone from applying directly in Hong Kong as one can be subjected to abuse and one can be lacking of some major benefits and protection. They insisted to go through the right process, which is going through accredited Recruitment or Placement Agencies.
Though it can be argued that recruitment agencies in the Philippines ask for a ridiculous sum of money, not to mention the qualification they’re looking for is over the top, these recruitment agencies are governed by laws and they will ask for what is in accordance to law. Filipinos who are wanting to work in Hong Kong or in any other place should not be wary of recruitment agencies if the agency is accredited by the POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Agencies). There are so many recruitment agencies in the Philippines but not all of them are operating legally. Before one is to go to a recruitment agent it is imperative that one checks the accreditation of the agency and its validity, in that way, you will not be subjected to scam.
It is sad but true that there are people who take advantage of other people, who don’t mind to get hard-earned money of individuals for their own interests and use conning for the betterment of their own lives. It is up to an individual to be cautious on who is he dealing with. So, to prevent from being a victim make sure that you only go to those who are accredited by POEA. Log-on to their website and you can easily check the legitimacy of one recruitment agency.
Here, I listed some of the POEA Accredited Recruitment Agencies for people looking for brighter future in Hong Kong and all the agencies here are legitimate and you can definitely check it for yourself, too. As they say, “Better be safe than sorry.”
