An Overseas Filipino Workers is a person of Philippine origin who works outside of the Philippines. This term applies only to people of Filipino ancestry who works of a different country.
Most overseas Filipino Workers migrate to other nations to find employment or support their families in the Philippines. As a result of this migration, many countries have a substantial Filipino community.
Often, these Filipinos are referred to as “Overseas Filipino Workers” or “OFWs“. The term “Global Filipino” is another term of more recent vintage but less widely used.
