UPDATE [March 11, 2011]:

Deployment of overseas Filipino workers to Bahrain is now allowed, both for returning workers and new hires, as per POEA Advisory No. 10.

The POEA has issued an advisory suspending the processing and deployment of all OFWs bound for Libya and Yemen until the political and security conditions in the said countries have normalized.
