How and Where To Process: ONLINE OEC FOR OFWS

News Release May 12, 2016 

POEA urges returning OFWs to use online system.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration yesterday issued an advisory encouraging balik-manggagawa or vacationing overseas Filipino workers (OFW) to use the BM Online system to acquire their respective overseas employment certificates (OEC).

 Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said that starting June 1, 2016, the POEA main office in Mandaluyong City will accommodate only those with appointment set through the online system. 

The appointment system was developed as a built in component to cater to OFWs who cannot proceed to the straight online processing of the OEC for any of the following reasons: 

1. No existing record in the POEA database 
2. Undocumented worker 
3. Changed employer and/or jobsite 
4. The worker or employer is on watchlist 
5. OFW is returning to a restricted country 
6. Former seafarer Cacdac said may set an online appointment at the convenience of their homes for the processing of their OEC at their preferred date, time and location. “Returning workers may also get their OECs at the POEA’s offices in the provinces through the appointment system,” Cacdac said. 

For technical support, OFWs may send a email at and or contact 0917325797, (02)7210785, (02)7219496 and (02)7277778.

POEA encourage OFWs to use the online appointment and online processing of OEC. Read and watch the video instruction below and the locations where to get them. 

The new process is more efficient and faster. OFWs can save their time and transportation cost, through the new online system. 

OFWs can visit to process their OEC or for appointment.

For those OFWs who are not yet in the POEA database can make appointment online to speed up the processing of their OEC
