I went to Macau as a tourist and ventured to look for a job. It was a fun experience. Wandering around this new place and exploring the various attractive spots. While, at the same time, looking for opportunities to start a career in Macau.
There are a lot of reasons that people work in Macau. One is because it is near to the Philippines and other neighboring countries like Nepal, Myanmar, Indonesia and Vietnam. It is also an open country, which means that you are only required a passport to get here.
For some Filipinos, it is more convenient to go to Macau and look for a job under a tourist visa. They’d usually take a fortune and risk spending money just to apply directly to job agencies in Macau.
Others would consider their Macau-job-hunting as a fun and fulfilling experience while on a tourist visa. But unfortunately, it was a nightmare to some.
It is because some employers and local job agencies take advantage of these vulnerable applicants. These agencies and employers charge unreasonable agency fees. Due to this situations, OFWs are exposed to potential domestic abuses.
That is why the Philippine Consulate in Macau discourages Filipinos to gamble in Macau job-hunting under a tourist visa. The Macau authorities are also vigilant in apprehending job applicants who are on a tourist visa.
