Balik Manggawa Online Processing

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration advised Balik - Manggagawa or vacationing Overseas Filipino Workers to use its online system to get an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) or exit clearance instead of lining up at the POEA office and its processing centers.

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said BM Online or the Balik - Manggagawa Online Processing, which will be officially launched October 16 , is intended not only to get rid of queues but also to speed up the process at the convenience of vacationing OFWs.

“With the new system, a returning OFW can now apply online for the OEC and have the approved OEC printed by him/her anywhere , anytime. With the existing database sharing with the Bureau of Immigration , the updated information of OFWs who have successfully secured their OEC using the system will be automatically shared with the Bureau . This facilitates the validation by the immigration officers at the airport of the OEC being presented by the bearer,” Cacdac said.

Cacdac said BM Online is available only for workers on vacation, rehired, or returning to the same employer, and with exi sting record in the POEA database. A Balik - Manggagawa or returning worker who does not meet the said criteria will be redirected to the BM Appointment page for regular processing of OEC on a chosen date and time and preferred processing site of the worker.

Workers using the system will have to pay Php100 for processing fee and Php19.50 for e - payment service fee. The system is now available at and can likewise be accessed through the POEA website.

POEA Padlocks Travel Agency For Illegal Recruitment Charge

Operatives of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration and members of the Marikina City Police last week closed down a travel agency allegedly involved in the recruitment of Filipino workers for overseas jobs.

Deputy Administrator Amuerfina R. Reyes, POEA officer-in-charge, identified the travel office as Jamea and Angels Travel Consultancy Services located at 2nd floor, Tancy Building, Barangay Molino, Parang, Marikina City which is owned and operated by a certain Jamea Lawas Barreon.

The POEA operatives reported that they have gathered evidence that Ms. Barreon was recruiting OFWs for overseas jobs. The officers found passports and resume of applicants on the tables, and lists of job vacancies for Korea, Canada, Israel, Japan and New Zealand and framed photos of applicants “scheduled to depart” posted on the office walls.

Travel agencies are not allowed to recruit and deploy Filipino overseas workers.  Under Republic Act No. 8042, as amended by Republic Act No. 10022, any act of hiring Filipino workers when undertaken by one without license or authority from the POEA is considered illegal recruitment.

When interviewed, Barreon readily admitted that she was recruiting overseas workers with the help of a certain “Christian Benito” whom she alleged to be an employee of the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Reyes said the POEA is preparing charges of illegal recruitment against Barreon and her office staff Julietta Balcruz Capistrano, and their names will be included in the POEA’s List of Persons with Derogatory Record.

DFA Appeals To OFWs In Libya To Return Home Immediately

The Department of Foreign Affairs strongly reiterates its call to all Filipino nationals in Libya to return home as soon as possible.

DFA in a statement said Alert Level 4 has been raised due to the latest security developments in Libya, the increasing violence and lawlessness, the closure of major airports, the heightened security threat to Filipinos, particularly in Benghazi, where a Filipino worker was kidnapped on July 15 and  was confirmed dead Saturday.

These events indicate that it is no longer safe for our OFWs to remain in Libya, DFA reiterates and asks OFWs that for their own safety to immediately contact the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli to register for repatriation.

Since the start of the crisis, DFA said it has continuously monitored the security developments in Libya while remaining sensitive to the needs of overseas Filipino workers in that country.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. del Rosario headed to Libya on May 28 to personally assess the situation on the ground. The DFA subsequently raised the Alert Level to 3 (Voluntary Repatriation) on May 29 due to the political and security instability there. A Rapid Response Team, as well as an augmentation team from the DFA, were also sent shortly to Libya to assist the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli in the repatriation efforts.

The Philippine Embassy in Tripoli reached out to the Filipino community and to employers in Libya to brief them on the situation and inform them of DFA’s responses to the crisis. Embassy officers made representations with employers to promote the labor interests of OFWs and obtain employers’ cooperation to ensure their safety.

The DFA also put up 24-hour hotlines for families of OFWs in Libya. Those who have questions and concerns about the conditions of their relatives in Libya can call the hotline numbers (02) 552-7105 / (02) 834-4685. Families may also send their queries by e-mail to

To register for repatriation, OFWs in Libya can directly get in touch with the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli. The Embassy's address is KM 7 Gargaresh Road, Abu Nawas, P.O. Box 12508, Tripoli. Filipinos can contact the Embassy through the telephone numbers (00218) 918-244-208 / (00218) 911061166, and the e-mail addresses;
