IN a bid to ensure the safe arrival and overall well-being of returning overseas Filipinos (ROFs), the One-Stop-Shop (OSS) at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminals 1, 2, and 3; Clark International Airport (CIA); and Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), have been continuously providing all the necessary assistance and service, including the identification of possible isolation facilities where they may take their mandatory quarantine, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The One-Stop-Shops (OSS) at the airports have already served over 2 million ROFs–2,301,055 to be exact, since the beginning of its operations on April 23, 2020.

Out of the total number, 578,945 ROFs were served at Terminal 1; 713,420 at Terminal 2; 551,938 at Terminal 3; 247,163 at CIA; and 209,589 at MCIA.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Art Tugade has emphasized that providing assistance to our “kababayans”, such as our OFWs (overseas Filipino workers), must be non-stop, as they are considered as our “modern day heroes”, along with our health workers, and other frontliners, who make selfless sacrifices, amid the unprecedented threat of the pandemic, just to ensure the welfare of their families.
