Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello said that he already instructed Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) administrator Bernard Olalia to make the process much easier for those who will work in Yukon.
The employment will be through a government-to-government track. Since the POEA will be handling the application, there will be no placement fee.
