BM Online: The Easiest Way OFWs can get their OECs

Posted by:

The Overseas Employment Certificate or OEC, also called the ‘exit pass’, is a requirement that needs to be presented on international ports of exit in the Philippines to prove that the person bearing it is a legitimate overseas Filipino worker or OFW.  The OEC is for any OFWs who are back to the Philippines for a vacation, and will be back again to the country where they are currently employed.

The OEC is also a requirement under the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA’s rules and regulations which would help guarantee that the OFWs are properly documented and protected. OFWs who have OECs exempt them from paying travel tax and the airport terminal fee.

OFWs that are on vacation, rehired or returning to the same employer, and those with existing record in the POEA database can use the Balik-Manggagawa  Online Processing System.  But Balik-Manggagawa’s that do not meet this criteria will be redirected to the BM Appointment page for the regular processing of OEC on the OFWS convenience, choosing their preferred date, time and processing site.

According to POEA administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac, the BM online facilitates the validation by the immigration officers at the airport of the OEC being presented by the OFW.

OFWs need to follow these steps for the BM online processing of their OECs.

  1. Go to http://bmonline.poea.gov.ph/ and register or sign up by filling up the boxes with the information needed under the “New User” category.
  2. Check the email you provided for the verification link.  OFWs must confirm the registration by logging in using the account email address and password you’ve entered.
  3. Verify your current OEC number.  Input your OEC number on the pop up box that will appear.  OFWs can also check the validity of their OEC number.  In case you don’t have with you at that moment your OEC or you can’t remember, you can just click OK and ESC to remove the pop up box.
  4. Input all the needed information.  Fill out all the box with the necessary information needed like:
  • Passport number
  • Expiration date
  • Visa number
  • Address
  • SSS number
  • PhilHealth number
  • Pag-IBIG number
  • Contact number
  • Beneficiaries
  • Employer details

5.Click the Save button.  After entering all the correct information needed, OFWs must not forget to click the save button so the BM online OEC application will be successful.

For OFWs who have applied for their OECs abroad, your OEC number will not yet be found in the BM online system.

OFWs that will use the BM Online will have to pay for the processing fee worth Php 100 and Php 19.50 for the e-payment service fee.

Prioritize your Health, OFWs

Posted by:

If asked to choose between health and wealth, most Filipinos or OFWs will choose the first one. Apparently, this will be the obvious answer so as not to cause a stir and think of someone as money-minded.

 
Health, in every aspect should be the priority for everyone, especially OFWs who are working abroad. OFWs sacrifice everything just to provide better future for their family by overseas jobs. And most of the OFWs, though they’ve experienced bad experiences from foreign employers abroad, still decide to look for overseas jobs and work abroad again. This decision means taking risk in every aspect by working abroad – health, happiness, family, homesickness etc.

 
This is why Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) secretary Rosalinda Baldoz reiterated the call for OFWs not to take any risk by applying or entertaining employment or job offers from Ebola-hit countries like Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. She further said that the deployment ban for these countries still exists, and OFWs paper will not be legally processed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA for them to be sent to work abroad.

 
The announcement was made by DOLE secretary amidst report stating that there was a high demand for healthcare workers for deployment on the West African countries to aid the increasing number of patients with Ebola virus.

 
The total ban deployment was enforced by POEA last month as part of the preventive measure for OFWs to avoid being infected with deadly Ebola virus disease.

 
Also, a total deployment ban was imposed for newly-hired OFWs last July when the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) issued crisis alert level 2 on the three countries because of Ebola virus spreading.

 
This total deployment ban ordered by POEA includes the processing and deployment of returning OFWs even if they have existing employment contract in the Ebola-hit countries.

 
Filipinos, especially OFWs, should heed the call not to apply for overseas jobs in the West African countries greatly affected by the Ebola virus. You all have one goal, to earn much money for the family, but it would be useful if you’ll be infected by this alarming deadly disease that had claimed thousands of lives.
