POEA OEC Services

Is it Overseas Employment Certificate or Overseas Exit Clearance? Anyway, I am glad Philippine Overseas Employment Administration offices are open on December 22, 23, 24, 26 and 29 and January 2, 2009. All returning cash cows like me should not forget to apply for an OEC to avoid hassle in the airport when they leave beloved Pilipinas again. See this news advisory from POEA:


If for some reason (like avoiding blood pressure elevation) you don’t want to see any POEA personnel, you can apply for OEC online through Citizen Services.  I haven’t tried this yet but I celebrate POEA for having this option made available to OFWs… But honestly, it would have been much better if they remove the Php 100.00 processing fee. Massive OFW remittances to the country should be enough to cover for this. Besides, “processing” is an integral function of a government agency. Why charge for it?

Bawat kibot mo talaga sa Pilipinas kailangan may bayad.  Tsk tsk…

    Ang galing talaga naman oo. Akala ko ang kailangan ko lang ay trabaho. meron pa pala nito.
    Joe: Oo nga e. Pero kunsabagay tinanggal naman yung mahal na travel tax kapalit ng OEC kaya ayos na rin. Pero mas maganda pa rin kung walang binabayaran…

...sapagkat ang gobyerno natin ay may "cash cow mentality" pagdating sa mga Overseas Filipino Workers.

(Read On "Milking the Cash Cow")

...sapagkat ako ay isa ring OFW; may mithiin, marunong magisip at nagnanais marinig... Makabagong bayani daw... Sa totoo'y tampok na gatasan ng pamahalaan. (English)
