The Philippines Department of Tourism (PDOT) launched “Bring Home a Friend” (BHAF) programme, a campaign that aims to encourage all Filipinos residing in the Philippines and abroad to help promote Philippines to their foreign friends as their next holiday destination.
In Oman, there are currently about 30,000 Filipinos residing in the country working in different sectors.
The programme will run for six months starting from October 15, 2017 up to April 15, 2018.
The Filipino sponsors, who either reside in the country or overseas, stand to win an array of prizes. Conversely, the more foreign friends the sponsors invite, the more entries they can submit.
To join, the sponsor must duly register via the Bring Home a Friend webpage accessible via DOT’s website tourism.gov.ph. Registration may also be accomplished at BHAF booths soon to be set up at selected international airports in the Philippines.
Major prizes awaiting the sponsors include a condominium from Megaworld Corporation, a brand new Toyota Vios, and a PHP200,000 gift certificate at Duty-Free Philippines while their foreign guests can win round-trip international flight tickets and tour packages to Palawan, Cebu, and Davao.
