Overseas Filipino workers returning abroad may soon get the Overseas Employment Certificates (OECs) from a home computer or an Internet cafe.

This was after the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) held a soft launch of its Balik Manggagawa online processing system.

"We are soft-launching our Balik Manggagawa (BM) Online System, which aims to streamline processing of overseas employment certificates (OECs). The idea is to provide access to an appointment facility or an OEC self-print out system at the BM's convenience," POEA administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said.

He said those who want to try out the new system can log on to bmonline.poea.gov.ph.

The site indicated the service is available only for:

  1. - workers on vacation
  2. - workers rehired
  3. - workers returning to the same employer
  4. - those with existing record in the POEA database.
OFWs who had registered with the system can log in while new users have to fill out an online form.

Also, Cacdac said some previously issued OECs by Philippine Overseas Labor Offices have still not been enrolled with the system, "in which case the BM will be guided to the appointment system."

"There will be a P100 POEA fee and a P19.50 service fee for use of the e-payment portal," he added.  — Joel Locsin /LBG, Source: gmanetwork.com/news
