Labor undersecretary Bernard Olalia, officer-in-charge administrator of Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) confirmed the news that OFW ID will be rolled out in the first week of December.

Currently, memorandum of agreement (MOA) for the implementation of integrated DOLE system or iDOLE is being finalized.

Olalia said all agencies have already signed MOA for iDOLE except for DFA.

Through iDOLE system, OFW ID users can access their data in POEA, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), Bureau of Immigration (BI), Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

Olalia added that after the DFA signs the MOA and data-sharing agreement, guidelines for OFW ID will be released. Issuance and application process for the OFW ID will be discussed in the guidelines.

Olalia said they are targeting to start the printing and distribution of the OFW ID either on Dec. 5 or 6 in time for the surge in the arrival of OFW for the Christmas holidays.

OFW lunched the OFW ID last July but guidelines were delayed due to concerns about some of the feature of the ID, however, DOLE said, the problem is already addressed.
