A 25-year-old woman who desperate to work in Dubai was intercepted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 3 after an amulet that would supposedly make her invisible to immigration agents failed to work.

The victim was instructed by the recruiter to avoid going through immigration, making them believe that the airport insider may be waiting behind the counters, ready to affix Bureau of Immigration Border Stamps on the victim’s passport,Taskforce said.

The woman who posed as a tourist was intercepted at 2 p.m. on May 20 after she was caught trying to skip the immigration counter at the airport. It was her third attempt to leave the country.Before she was apprehended, she tried to leave on May 17 and 19.

On her first attempt, she told immigration officers she was a tourist whose trip to Dubai was sponsored by an uncle. But they did not allow her to leave after she failed to show documents proving her claims.

The second time, on May 19, she tried to skip the immigration counters. When caught, she said that her supposed uncle had instructed her not to undergo immigration inspection.

According to her, she was offered work in Dubai as a caregiver with free board and lodging plus a monthly salary of 2,500 Dirhams.

Her recruiter asked her to pay P16,000 as processing fee for her travel documents.

To ensure that she would be able to leave this time, the woman said that she bought an invisibility amulet for P750 from an Aeta tribesman.

According to the task force’s report: “The passenger during the investigation and counseling of the duty social worker [said] that she was desperate to go abroad as they [she and her family] were deep in debt because of her expenses incurred in trying to work abroad.”

It further stated: “Worried that she would be spotted again while following the instruction to evade the immigration, she bought an amulet for P750 from an Aeta purportedly to render her invisible. However, she was obviously seen as she was caught again.”

The human trafficking victim was endorsed to the National Bureau of Investigation for her complaint against the illegal recruiter while the Naia-TFATP was conducting a probe to identify the airport insider.
