Returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), or “balikmanggagawa,” from Pangasinan and Ilocos Norte can now process their overseas employment certificates (OECs) without going to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) head office in Mandaluyong City.

Starting September, the mobile “balikmanggagawa” processing scheme will cater to returning OFWs from Pangasinan at the DoLE field office in Rosales situated at Barangay Zone 4 every Friday.

The One-Stop Processing Center at the DoLE Dagupan Field Office will continue to process returning workers every Wednesday of the week.

Meanwhile, OFWs living in Ilocos Norte can visit the Provincial Capitol of Laoag every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at the provincial auditorium.

The program is one way of reducing the number of individuals going to the POEA main office during peak season.

It also aims to bring the POEA’s OEC processing closer to where workers live or stay. Source: Manila Bulletin
