Tech to Check OFW Documents, Launched in NAIA



To speed up the departure process of Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), the Bureau of Immigration (BI) is now using technologies such as tablets and bar code readers in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). Those technologies are now used to check the legitimacy and validity of OFW documents such as E-card or Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).  In a statement, BI Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina said that BI personnel at NAIA are now using six tablets and six bar code readers from the OWWA to check the authenticity of OFW documents at NAIA.  The new measure was launched last March 5, 2019, for the hassle-free travel experience of OFWs who are departing for work in other countries. Aside from the E-card or the OEC, the new gadgets will also help in screening and intercepting fake documents and information being given to some OFWs.   Medina said that gadgets will let immigration personnel assigned at the airport to conduct pre-screening of OFWs even before they arrived at the counters.  He added that the system automatically checks the validity of E-card which contains the OEC information on an OFW. And because the process will take in a matter of seconds, it will expedite the departure process of the OFW.
