im a filipino nurse who is hired by libyan delegates from Ministry of health, is it safe to work in libya?

i am having hesitations if i will continue my application to libya. the agency here in philippines told us it's safe to work in libya as a nurse, but there are also negative feedbacks from other people. i am worried and confused. is it true that in libya you cannot get hold of your salary? the hospital or company you're working with will send it directly to your homecountry? is this true? and only half of your salary will be sent and you will only be given allowance? is this true for all foreign workers entering in libya? how much is the tax that i have to pay in libya? it's a muslin country ,bt why is there tax? can i possibly get married in libya or can i buy visa for my future husband? what are the requirements? what are the working condition of nurses in libya? i have so many questions , i really need honest answers. please help me.thanks in advance. God bless.

My cousin is working in Libya and I am giving some facts. As I hear, there are many Filipinos working in my cousin's hospital.Working conditions are good. No problems in that regard. But when it comes to salary there is a problem. Tax is 13% which is OK and not too much, but before she went to Libya, she was told that her salary will be tax free, but after reaching there they told they will be charging tax - this is first cheating. Now for 7 months they gave her the agreed salary but now they are telling the salary is more and they are going to reduce it by some 90 LYD per month. It is OK if they are reducing from next month onwards, but they said she will have to give back 90 LYD of past 7 months!!! what the heck?? - second cheating. It not only for her but for some 50 - 60 nurses who went there as a group. But based on experience they have increased salary of some 10 -15 nurses, but remember it is cheating to not give the agreed salary when signing up the contract. The next question is about visa. you will have to pay around 300 - 400 LYD each year to get a visa. In addition to that a 75 LYD for medical check-up each year. To tell the truth, they have been there 9 months now and till now they haven't got their visas, none of her batch have been issued visa yet. there are some married nurses also, all of them are trying to get a family visa. the whole process will take around a year to get a visa. The sad story is, there was a girl and her father died. but she was not able to go back for the funeral because she did not have a visa. This is pathetic, so if there is an emergency, it will be almost impossible to go back to ur country. Libya is a muslim country, so u should cover all ur body. People are good, but as in every country there are bad people there too. You shouldn't travel alone in Libya in taxis or by walk etc. In one incident my cousin told she and her frnds were walking on the road one day when some guy on the road unzipped his pants and showed his privates. This happened 2 - 3 times with different girls. How shameful. absolutely ridiculous. They literally ran away from there. Since then they stopped walking. All these can be excused, because it can happen in any country. But cheating? They promised something like good salary, immediate family visa, good accommodation etc.. but none has been fulfilled. The only thing that is good is the working conditions, no over stress at work, good doctors, good co-workers, good working conditions. But shitty management. Biggest wonder is there is no address system in Libya. She still doesn't know the address of the place she is living at. I tried to send a letter to her hospital, she haven't got it till now after 2 - 3 months. Internet is cheap there, but most of the time u wont get good speeds. Mobile charges are costlier. So my advice will be to read the contract carefully and clear everything with hospital before coming here.

Hello kabayan, there is supposedly an office in Manila where you could have all your questions about any overseas employment answered. I live abroad so I don't know exactly where the Overseas Filipino Workers' office is. I suggest you post this question under Yahoo Philippines. You might get the answers you need. I hope this helps.

Hey, NEVER go there. have you heard about the seven nurses and doctor imprisoned in lybia for several years, because the lybians said they had spreaded HIV: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgarian_nurses_in_Libya The EU had to negotiate for years and it was very difficult to get them back. Hope you make the right decision.
