MANILA - The Department of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday lowered the crisis alert level for Yemen from 3 (voluntary repatriation) to 2 (restriction phase).
"Our embassy cites the improving security and political situation in that country as the reasons for its recommendation," the DFA said in a statement.
Under Alert Level 2, Filipinos with existing labor contracts may return to Yemen.
However, the deployment of newly-hired overseas Filipino workers remains suspended.
The DFA still urge Filipinos to restrict non-essential movements and avoid public places.
