OEC.jpg

Good news para sa ating mga kababayang OFW! May online facility na para makapag generate at makapagbayad ng OEC o Overseas Employment Certificate; hindi na ninyo kailangang pumunta pa sa designated Philippine embassies and consular locations. Para ito sa mga OFW na nagbabakasyon sa bansa, rehired, o pabalik sa dati nilang employer at may existing nang records sa POEA database.

Kung ikaw naman ay OFW din at aalis ka nang muli pero bago na iyong employer, magagamit mo pa din ang online facility dahil pwede ka nang mag set ng appointment mo online. Ibig sabihin, kapag meron kang appointment, siguradong may mag-assist sa iyo pag dating mo sa OEC processing at hindi mo na kailangang pumila ng matagal.

Maaaring ma-access ang online facility ng Balik Manggagawa ditto (http://bmonline.poea.gov.ph/). Narito ang mga hakbang para sa Application ng OEC online:

  1. Visit the Balik Manggagawa website (http://bmonline.poea.gov.ph/). Kung hindi ka pa nakagawa ng online account mo, piliin ang New User? na column at ilagay ang lahat ng detalye na hinihingi. Siguraduhing valid ang email address na inilagay sa Email address field dahil dito ipadadala ang verification email. Kung hind mave-verify ang iyong account, hindi mo ito maa-access.
  2. Kapag na-verify na ang account mo, bumalik sa website at mag login sa iyong account. Ihanda ang iyong passport at kopya ng visa, ang iyong original na OEC (kailangang sa Pilipinas na-issue ang OEC).
  3. Sagutin ang information sheet at ilagay ang petsa ng departure/alis sa Pilipinas.
  4. Para sa mga first time OEC applicants, maaaring mamili ng date at lugar kung saan mo gustong kunin ang OEC.
  5. Kapag siguradong tama na ang lahat ng inilagay na information, i-click ang ‘Set Appointment’. Mabibigyan ka pa ng pagkakataon na ma-review ang lahat ng information na inilagay mo bago ito ma-confirm.
  6. Ang e-payment facility ay para naman sa mga returning visitors; maaari silang magbayad gamit ang online banking system na available sa website. Kapag nakapag bayad na, maaari nang i-print ang OEC kasama ang mga system-generated certificates at receipts. Mag print ng tatlong kopya ng OEC.

Ilang mga paalala mula sa POEA tungkol sa OEC:

  • Ang POEA ay hindi nagi-isyu ng OEC sa mga airport maliban sa mga OFW na naka emergency leave ng hindi lalagpas sa five (5) days.
  • Ang OEC ay valid lamang sa petsa o araw kung kalian ito na-isyu. Kaya’t kinakailangang ang OFW ay may confirmed flight schedule sa parehong araw.
  • Ito ay available sa mga Labor Assistance Centers (LAC) sa mga international airports sa Manila, Cebu, at Davao.
  • Simula November 2, 2015, ang POEA Main Office sa Edsa corner Ortigas Avenue ay tatanggap lamang ng mga Balik-Manggagawa na may APPOINTMENT sa BM Online Processing System.
  • Ang mga sumusunod na POEA Regional Offices ay tatanggap lamang ng mga Balik-Manggagawa na may APPOINTMENT sa BM Online Processing System:
    • San Fernando City, La Union
    • Tuguegarao City
    • Baguio City
    • San Fernando City, Pampanga
    • Calamba City
    • Legaspi City
    • Cebu City
    • Iloilo City
    • Bacolod City
    • Tacloban City
    • Davao City
    • Butuan City
    • Zamboanga City

News for OFWs vacationing in the country.

==============

THE Philippine Overseas Employment Administration is urging overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to have their overseas employment certificate (OEC) or travel exit clearance processed early.

POEA Administrator Carlos Cao Jr. said: “to avoid long lines at the Balik-Manggagawa Processing Center, overseas Filipino workers should get their OECs as soon as they arrive instead of flocking to the POEA main office immediately after Christmas and New Year’s Day.”

“Returning OFWs could (also) secure their exit clearance at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (Polo) nearest their jobsite even before their flight to the Philippines,” he said in Monday advisory as the agency prepares for the arrival of thousands of OFWs this holiday season.

Workers going to the provinces may also have their exit clearance at the POEA regional offices nearest their residence. POEA offices are located in the cities of Bacolod, Iloilo, Baguio, Tuguegarao, San Fernando in La Union, Clark Field in Pampanga, Calamba, Legazpi, Tacloban, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Zamboanga.

OFWs may also use the OEC courier system that is available online at http://www.citizenservices.com.ph/poea.

Cao said considered as “balik-maggagawa” are workers on vacation or on leave from employment under valid and existing employment contract/s and are returning to the same employer/s regardless of any change in jobsite to finish the remaining unexpired portion of the contract; a worker who was rehired by the same employer after finishing his/her contract and who is returning to the same employer regardless of a change in jobsite; and a returning worker whose employment contract was not processed with the POEA but was subsequently verified and registered with the Polo in the jobsite and who is returning to the same employer either as a worker-on-leave or rehire, regardless of any change in jobsite.

Meanwhile, Cao dismissed as exaggerated some comments from recruiters that job orders may be cancelled due to the delay in the processing of OFW employment at the POEA.

He said while “there was a slight delay in the processing time of documents after the reassignment of some frontline employees, the lag did not stretch to 15 days as reported to cause lost employment opportunities.”

He also attributed the delay to the four-day-long weekend from October 29 to November 1, 2011 and the three-day-long weekend from November 5-7 due to holidays. “A special task force formed has already decongested the processing backlog.
