Expatriates have protested in front of the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare demanding vaccination. They demanded that even if the government issues a notification for ticker registration, they have to come back to the ministry. The expatriate workers complained that the government officials did not know anything about the registration even though the government had announced it.
Expatriates from various countries, including the Middle East, staged a protest in front of the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment in the Eskaton Garden area of the capital around 10am on Thursday.
Talking to a few protesters, it is learned that many of their visas will expire very soon. But still no one is sure about getting vaccinated. However, they cannot enter these countries without a certificate of vaccination. Although many Saudis and Kuwaitis have registered for the vaccine, the two countries have yet to confirm whether they will receive the vaccine in their Chinese form.
Saiful Islam, an expatriate from Saudi Arabia, told Dhakatimes that he has been working in Saudi Arabia for 10 years. I came with a vaccine from Saudi Arabia before coming to the country on holiday. But now I am not getting vaccinated in the country. You don’t have to go to Saudi Arabia and stay in quarantine once you get another vaccine. We would have survived at a cost of 60 thousand rupees. “Many people have told us that they have had to spend a lot of money to buy food in quarantine,” he said. No one sees our responsibility. Once vaccinated, I will be able to go directly to work.
Lutfar Rahman of Manikganj is not able to return to UAE for vaccination. He told Dhakatimes that he was not allowed to enter Dubai without vaccination. My vacation will end in a month. I will not be able to return to work without getting vaccinated yet.
Hundreds of expatriates were seen standing in front of the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare. Their demand is to arrange ticks in a timely manner and create opportunities for them to return to their respective workplaces. Because the government has already asked us to contact the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare to register for the vaccine. But I can’t see anything here.
