The Philippines government has asked Saudi Arabia to extend deadline for illegal foreign workers to legalise their stay there to avoid thousands of Filipinos being deported.

Philippines Vice President Jejomar Binay has written to the Saudi Arabian king, Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, asking for an extension before the November 3rd deadline for foreign illegal workers to correct their status.

Mr Binay says thousands of Filipinos could face deportation by the weekend deadline.

More than thirteen thousand Filipinos have been repatriated, or have had their documents processed, on two extensions granted by the Saudi government since the crackdown on illegal workers began in April.

Some 1,500 more Filipinos are waiting for immigrations clearances, and might not make the November 3rd deadline.

There are more than a million Filipinos working in Saudi Arabia, and more than 100,000 of them are undocumented.
