Visa-runners stranded in Kish
There is a donation box placed on a counter at the Rodaki Restaurant with a handwritten sign on it in Tagalog which says, “Help those without visa.” The box has only a few dirhams in it.
Nearby on a wall are notes left behind by those who were helped in their desperation.
“Fifty dirhams. Thank you for your help. Honario David,” says one note. Another just lists a mobile phone number and a plea, “I need help,” it reads.
Mohsin Iraj, a harried front-desk staffer at Farabi Hotel 1, picks up a bundle of passports, most of them belonging to Filipinos and a couple of green-coloured ones of Bangladeshis, and starts counting them. “Thirteen”, he says finally. “These people do not have any money, they cannot pay for their room. What can we do?” he asks.
At an internet cafein the hotel sits a young Filipina chatting with someone, and crying. She said the agency told her that her visa application was rejected in Dubai. She has been on the island for 33 days.
Most of them are the victims of crooked Visa and Travel agencies. May Allah protect every innocent being trapped..Aameen.
