List of POLO-HK Accredited Agencies

Requested from DOLE by RONALIE MENDUA at 01:18 PM on Aug 14, 2020.
Purpose: Public interest
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2020 - 08/14/2020
Tracking no: #DOLE-676942605898

RONALIE 01:18 PM, Aug 14, 2020

I would like to obtain a list of all POLO-HK Accredited agencies. Since the new Labatt has taken charge of POLO-HK, there has been no publicly available list of accredited agencies.

Now, it is impossible for OFWs to determine if an agency is accredited or illegal. Therefore, I kindly request a copy of any document or record containing a list of all POLO-HK Accredited Agencies
