The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has vowed to assist seafarers stranded ashore or in the Philippines amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the Resolution no.13 Series of 2020, the POEA Governing Board assured protection and benefits for seafarers during the national state of calamity due to COVID-19.

A seafarer who has already signed an employment contract but cannot be deployed due to the pandemic will be provided with accommodation and food to be shouldered by the principal or employer, unless provided by the government.

The aid will be provided until the seafarer is deployed or returned home, or until the cancellation of the employment contract.

A seafarer who is deployed but stranded mid-transit will also receive a basic pay, accommodation, food, and medical benefits from the principal or employer until reaching the vessel.
