Manila, Philippines — Tinatayang nasa 100,000 Filipino healthcare worker ang may pending visas na magtatrabaho sa United States.

Ito ay sa gitna ng masyadong mataas na demand para sa mga nars at doktor sa naturang bansa.

“There are quite a number of pending visas for nurses from the Philippines that I think are being considered now very seriously that they’d like to bring them over. These are nurses that have already been approved [of] moving to the United States as health workers,” paliwanag ni Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Romualdez.

“I would think that [there is] probably at least 100,000 visas…that are pending right now to come to the United States.”

“In all my discussions with the U.S. government people, we inevitably always talk about the nurses, most especially, the kind of people that we have here working in the hospitals. There’s so much appreciation, the demand is very high for Filipinos nurses and doctors actually,” dagdag pa nito.

Sa ngayon, nasa 150,000 hanggang 200,000 Filipino healthcare worker ang nagtatrabaho sa U.S. RNT/FGDC
