Malaysia is experiencing critical shortage of foreign labor and, thus, continues to be in need of foreign workers, Labor and Employment Secretary Patricia A. Sto. Tomas said today as she called anew on Filipino migrants in Malaysia to come home and register at the One-Stop Processing Centers in Zamboanga City and Tawi-Tawi Bongao, to enable them to return and be re-employed in Malaysia without the threat of arrest and deportation.

She said that the two inter-agency OSPCs are facilitating the necessary documentation, including the provision of passports and work permits for migrants who wish to return to Malaysia with legal status in coordination with the Malaysia government. The centers also assist those who wish to be reintegrated into the local mainstream, the labor and employment chief said.

In issuing the call, she reminded migrants that they must voluntarily avail of the necessary processes and documentation in order to be classified as documented workers for employment in Malaysia.

She said the OSPCs provide one-stop shop services to the migrant returnees. In Zamboanga City, returnees from Malaysia may go to the OSPC conveniently located at the Metropolitan District Compound, Veterans Avenue. In Bongao, the OSPC is located at ITAD Foundation Bldg.

Sto. Tomas undercored the need for Filipino migrants to acquire legal document after the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Kuala Lumpur (POLO-KL) apprised her of Malaysia’s concern on the labor shortage in the country.

The country shall reportedly open its doors to documented overseas Filipino and other foreign workers in response to the shortage of workers now facing the different industries in Malaysia.

Malaysian Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr. Fong Chan Onn reportedly announced the move to address foreign labor shortage to counteract its effect on Malaysian industries, including component manufacturers, amidst the current demand for global electronics products.

He was quoted as saying the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) of Malaysia were the hardest hit while the construction sector, and even Indian-Muslim restaurants, were also in need of some 100,000, and 8,000 foreign workers, respectively.

The Malaysian newspaper New Straits Times indicated that that country’s business community had lauded the Malaysian government’s moves to end the country’s foreign labor shortages and resume the growth of its industries.

Sto. Tomas said Filipino and other foreign workers as well are still needed in Malaysia but those who have been in this country with legal papers need to go home and obtain the necessary documents for their reemployment in Malaysia.
