POEA Encourages OFWs to Use Online Appointment for Exit Clearance

The POEA Chief, Hans Leo J. Cacdac urged returning OFWs (balik-mangagawa)  to use the new online appointment system for the processing of their exit clearance or overseas employment certificate (OEC).

Through the appointment system, OFWs can now set their preferred schedule for the processing of their OECs. They would also get to avoid the long lines and crowds of workers who are expected who also need to get their exit clearances. Many OFWs are expected to go back to their job sites this month after spending their holidays in the Philippines.

To accommodate OFWs who use the online system for their OECs, the POEA has set up counters at the following:

POEA Main Office in Mandaluyong City – 7am to 5pm
Duty Free Philippines in Parañaque City – 9am to 5pm
SM Manila – 10am to 6pm
Trinoma in Quezon City: 9am to 6pm

Those without appointments who arrive at the POEA towards noon are likely to experience longer waiting time as they will be considered for the second batch to be processed in the afternoon.   

Documentary Requirements for returning workers:
Passport valid for 6 months from time of departure
Valid working visa/work permit
Proof of employment such as certificate of employment, company ID, pay slip, and other equivalent document. 

The online appointment service is Free. It is available at
