OFWs, You Know You Shouldn’t Do This

Posted by:

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs are constantly reminded not to make illegal acts abroad to avoid consequences.

 

Earlier this month, six Filipinos were arrested for smuggling diesel from Saudi Arabia to another Gulf country.

 

In a news report from Arab News, the OFWs, together with an Egyptian and a Pakistani, were to face 10-years jail term and to pay large amount for stealing diesel from the kingdom.

 

The Filipino community in Saudi Arabia were embarrassed about the news and appeal to all OFWs submit to the kingdom’s existing laws. OFWs must limit their activities to their work abroad and basic lifestyle requirements to survive in Saudi Arabia.

 

Saidy Malic, a Filipino community leader,  appeal to OFWs to be loyal to their employers and exercise professional conduct.

 

Before leaving the Philippines for their overseas jobs, OFWs undergo pre-departure orientation seminar or PDOS to give them an overview about their destination country’s culture, laws and other informations.

OFWs represent the Philippines as they work abroad, and so committing such crimes will define not only them but all other OFWs and the whole country as well.

At Last, the Long Wait Will be Over for OFWs

Posted by:

Most of the time, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) complain about the long wait for the processing of their documents from recruitment agencies. The recruitment agencies’ reply would be turned to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA)’s slow processing of papers.

 

Good news, not only for OFWs, but for the recruitment agencies as well! POEA now has a solution to this problem. They now offer two online services, the e-payment and the Recruitment Authority Issuance systems.

 

POEA-licensed recruitment agencies can now request for processing of contracts (RFP) online  for their hired workers.  And the moment it was approved, they can now pay the fees through POEA-accredited banks via the ePayment system. Recruitment agencies can also print the overseas employment certificate (OEC) of the hired worker.

 

The Recruitment Authority Issuance System on the other hand, allows application for the approval and issuance of special recruitment authority or SRA and letter of acknowledgement. It also grant agencies to upload documentary requirements and view their application status.

 

SRA and letter of acknowledgement are issued for agencies to be able to conduct activities inside or outside their premises.

 

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac has also encouraged all recruitment agencies to use the online services which aims to promote a culture of efficiency, accountability and transparency.

 

But POEA clarified that these online services will be for processing documents of OFWs that are skilled and professional workers only. Contracts for household service workers or HSWs will still pass close examination and evaluation like before.
