OFWs: Medical Examination Process (Pre-Employment)

In preparation for our departure to Japan, my companions and I had to undergo a very tedious medical examination. Since we will be working in Japan as OFWs, we of course went to POEA to submit the necessary requirements. One of the requirements is a medical certificate showing that we are fit to work abroad.

Unfortunately, POEA already specified names of clinics where we can have our medical examination, and it was a very limited list at that - they only have 4 "accredited" clinics. Without much choice, we went to the clinic that was nearest to the PhilNITS Office and this post will tell you all about our experience there.

Okay. Before you get started with your medical examination, I strongly advise you to sort of "cleanse" your body at least 3 days before the exam. Drink a lot of water, eat healthy food, and if you have any bad habits (e.g. smoking), it is best if you stay away from them just for a few days until your exam day. And of course, be sure that you have the POEA medical examination endorsement form with you because you will need to submit this form to the clinic, especially if you are a name/direct hire. Also, prepare at least Php 5,000.00 for your overall medical examination fees.

So the medical examination is composed of several tests: stool, urine, blood, physical, x-ray, pregnancy (for girls), optical (eyes), dental, and psychology tests. These are initial tests and you might still be advised to undergo additional tests depending on the results of these tests.

In our case, the first thing we were able to accomplish is the stool, urine, and blood test. We brought the stool and urine samples to the clinic on the day of our examination. The stool and urine sample must be submitted and tested within an hour from the time you obtained it. If you live far away, it might be best if you go to the clinic and get your sample from there since they have a bathroom. The blood test was not much of a hassle, but I became a little woozy after my blood sample was taken. A lot of blood was taken - about half of a regular syringe. It took me a long time before I got the feeling of the needle inside my body out of my senses.

Right after the blood test, we proceeded to x-ray. I don't know if it applies to all other clinics and hospitals now but the poses we did for the x-ray were new to me. There were two weird "poses" - one taken from the back and the other taken from the front. Our arms were positioned quite awkwardly in both. Anyway, the x-ray required taking off your upper clothes, including the bra for girls. But don't worry, this is not the worst part of the exam yet.

We took the psychology exam next because it was quite time-consuming. There were two tests - the first was an aptitude test and the second was a personality test. I guess an average person can easily pass the aptitude exam and the personality test is not really graded. It took us more than an hour to finish the two exams because there were around 200 questions.

While we took the psychology test, we were called out a few times to undergo the dental and optical tests. For the dental examination, if the dentist found some teeth that needed restoration or cleaning, you would be advised to have them done ASAP so that you can get your dental clearance. The same goes for the optical exam. If you were found to have some problems with your eyes (e.g. your vision is not 20/20 anymore), you will be required to have eyeglasses made for your clearance to be released. This happened to us, including me, and we had to pay extra for the glasses.

Finally, the test that we've all dreaded - the physical examination. We dreaded it because it required taking off all of your clothes (but for our case, we could leave our underwear on). The good thing is that the doctor was a woman so I was quite okay with that. Anyway, the physical examination checks your overall appearance, including your general skin color, body build, and such. While examining you, the doctor will also interview you about your medical history. For the girls, we were asked to lie down so that the doctor could check the breasts for lumps or any other abnormalities.

These are all of the tests that we had to undergo. It took us one whole day to finish everything and the results came out 2 days after. Thankfully, I was found to be physically fit for work. The sad part is, one of our companions is still stuck because his x-ray results showed problems with his lungs.

My final advise to you would be to physically, mentally, and financially prepare yourself for the medical examination. You will probably feel harassed after all the tests that you have had to undergo and if there are problems, you will need extra cash to be able to comply with the additional tests. For this step of your POEA processing, starting early helps a lot.

  1. Hello! I am also preparing for a pre-medical exam, which is one of the requirements to work in Japan. I just want to know, I have mild dextroscoliosis and I'm worried that it might affect my chances of getting approved. I've had med exams before (for local employment) and I always get a "fit to work" result but then, this is different because I know how strict the process is. Do you think I'll pass the exam even with a problem with my spine? I don't feel anything though, it's just that it has to be documented that I have it. Thanks!

    I really am not sure. It depends on the physician, really. If he thinks that your condition will hinder your job, then it might be a problem. Though some physicians may advise you to undergo a number of tests and they would just approve you in the end...

  3. Hi! I've had optical tests before and I know that I'm don't have 20/20 vision anymore. Mine was 40/70 but I wasn't advised to get glasses yet. So do you think I have to wear one already? So that it wouldn't be a hassle if I get there without glasses on?

    Also, would you know where the 4 clinics are located? Thanks!

    I'm not sure about the clinics because I think they change them every 6 months. So the accredited clinics when I had my examination may not be now. It would be better to check with POEA for the new list of accredited clinics/hospitals.

    As for your glasses, I'm not really a doctor who can tell you if you should wear them or not. :-) But if you will be leaving the country for a long time, I personally think that it would be better to get glasses while you're still in the Philippines because getting them abroad might be more expensive.

    I'm sorry I can't say anything for sure about your question. The best option would probably be to undergo the physical examination and listen to what the doctor has to say about your condition.

  9. Hi Kate ..

    Sorry to bother you again.. I just wanna ask if you also were required to go to the Japanese Embassy for the processing of your reference visa (or perhaps they already have changed this part of the procedure).. I'm not sure if I have read all of your postings regarding the whole process, they said that aside from going to the POEA and to any of those POEA accredited clinics, you should also visit their embassy and make a personal appearance before them..


    Phew~~

    Hope to hear your reply soon...


    Salamat ulit :)

  10. @Luna:

    In our case, we went through an agency for the processing of our VISAs. We didn't have to appear at the Japanese Embassy. The agency did everything for us and all we had to do was submit the requirements to them.

    Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the agency when we applied that time because it was in Manila and our employer took care of that for us.

    I'm sorry if I couldn't offer much help in this matter. But I would suggest you try applying for your VISA through an agency. It might incur additional expenses but it's less the trouble of having to go the Embassy personally.

  18. [Hi Kate,

    You need a form from POEA to proceed with the medical examination. The medical examination is part of the POEA process so you have to start with POEA first.

    For the photos, I suggest you prepare several copies of passport size and 2x2 photos.

    I don't think you will have any problem during the medical examination. My friend is also a smoker and he still passed.

    But I would strongly suggest that you try to smoke lesser at least a week before your medical examination. And try eating "body-cleansing" foods, fruits and vegetables. This is what my friend did before the examination.

  25. [tnx kate you give me a strength to face my fear

    Avocado, tomato, and citrus fruits like oranges are good. But actually, any kind of fruit and vegetable will do. It would also help a lot if you reduce your meat intake before the medical examination. And of course, lots of water to flush out the toxins. Good luck!

  89. Hi, ask ko lang po sana kung maapprove po ba application ko sa POEA kung positive ang result ng prenancy test ko. Halos kumpleto na lahat ng requirements pati ticket yun na lang po ang problema ngayon. Pumayag naman po kasi ang employer ko kahit alam na nya ang condition ko. Maraming salamat po in adavance.

    1. Hi! Baka i-require kayong mag-undergo ng additional tests para i-check kung hindi ba delikado yung warts, or hindi ba ito sanhi ng ibang sakit.
