POEA opens more kiosks to help OFWs

By

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration has opened additional kiosks at its main office in Mandaluyong City to help the expected 90,000 overseas Filipino workers who will be visiting the country during the holidays.

POEA Administrator Carlos Cao Jr. said they opened 10 additional kiosks at the POEA main office on Edsa, bringing the total number of kiosks to 27, to help OFWs process their overseas employment certificates (OEC).

“These additional windows will accommodate the expected influx of OFWs, who are seeking to have their OECs processed during the Christmas season,” Cao said.

He said around 90,000 OFWs usually return home to the country from December to January to celebrate Christmas with their families.

Cao said the POEA kiosks would be open as early as 7 a.m. and will remain open until all OFWs present are attended to by their staff.

Vacationing OFWs need to secure their OECs so that airport authorities would allow them to return to their jobs abroad.

Cao also reminded OFWs that the POEA main office would be closed on Christmas Day (Dec. 25), Rizal Day (Dec. 30), and on Dec. 31, which has been declared as a special nonworking holiday.

    Are these officials who made the decision to put additional extra kiosks has a brains at all? I agree with one poster ( Rene ), INTERNET processing should be the most expedient way and Ideal route to apply for this service(s).

    Everything the public needs in services through the Government agencies are getting harder and harder to attain along with its economy. Instead of moving forward, Going backwards in a fastest rate.

    This agency should be abolished. Walang added value ito para sa OFW. Pahirap at kotong lang ang alam ng mga to. Bakit kailangan dumaan ng tao sa mga to? Ano ang pakialam nila sa gustong mag hanapbuhay sa ibang bansa? Law enforcement ang kailangan laban sa illegal recruiters at hindi ang ganitong ahesiya! Isara nyo na to!
