Indonesia Gives Nod for Reopening of Migrant Workers’ Placement in Taiwan

Indonesia’s Manpower Ministry plans to reopen the placement of migrant workers abroad, especially in Taiwan but under special conditions to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah said that her office has received a letter from Taiwan’s Labor Ministry regarding the migrant workers’ placement. One of the conditions mentioned that the number of Covid-19 cases in Indonesia must be below 5,000 per day for seven consecutive days.

“The government is determined to work hard to reduce the number of Covid-19 transmissions. Alhamdulillah [praise be to God], as of May 9, the number [of new Covid cases] continued to decline to 3,922. If we continue to press the number, the PMI [migrant worker] placement to Taiwan can be reopened soon,” said Ida in a press statement on Tuesday, May 11
Ida further added that the decision of reopening migrant worker placement in Taiwan was based on the meeting held by Taiwan’s Labor Ministry and its Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

Besides, the Indonesian government has also taken necessary steps to renew the standard operating procedure for the migrant worker placement during the transition to the Covid-19 new normal. This includes the implementation of strict health protocol before migrant workers leaving for receiving countries.

“If the conditions required by Taiwan have been fulfilled, the Manpower Ministry will immediately inform Taiwan authorities as a basis for reopening the migrant worker placement,” the minister said.

In its preparation, the Manpower Ministry works closely with relevant agencies such as the migrant worker placement companies (P3MI) and associations based on the standard operating procedure.
