OFWs: POEA Processing for Direct Hire

Basically, POEA, or Philippine Overseas Employment Agency, supervises the overseas employment process for Filipinos who want to work abroad. More info about POEA on their site.

For this post, I am going to describe the POEA processing for Direct/Name Hires, or those who were directly employed by a foreign employer without the help of a recruitment agency.

What to bring:
- Original and 2 copies of employment contract
- Original passport and 2 copies of the picture page last page (the one with the emergency info)
- Original and 2 copies of VISA
- Php6,000-7,000 for the processing fees

Where is POEA Region XI:
- POEA in Davao is located at the 2nd floor of AMYA building, Tulip Drive, Ecoland, Davao City. It's a few steps across SM City Davao.

What to do:
1. Bring all the requirements and the copies. Sign your name in the logbook at the guard's table at the entrance to the POEA office and get a priority number.
2. Wait for your number to be called at table 2. When called, present your passport, preferably with the contract and VISA attached. You will be directed to table 3 for the evaluation of documents.
3. Wait for your name to be called at table 3. Be ready with all the originals and photocopies to avoid hassle. The lady there will ask some questions about your employment and such. You will also be told to get 4 forms from the photocopy center on the first floor. The lady will give you a small piece of paper with the names of the forms that you have to get. You will have to fill up these forms in order to continue with the evaluation process.
4. Head to the photocopy center on the first floor (you can't miss it because it's right beside the stairs that lead to the second floor). Just show them the piece of paper given to you and they will know what to do. Be aware, however, that these forms are not for free. Each page costs Php 2.00 so be ready with around Php 20.00 because there are quite a lot.
5. Also, before heading back, drop by the guard's table at the office entrance to get the OFW Information Sheet. You also have to fill this up and this one's given for free.
6. Fill up everything. After that, head back to table 3 and give the lady all of the forms. There's one form that you need to have notarized at the Public Attorney's Office, located inside Hall of Justice. NOTE: The Hall of Justice is in front of Ecoland Terminal. From POEA, you can ride Bangkal, Puan, Bago Aplaya, and Ecoland routes as these will stop right in front of HOJ.
7. VERY IMPORTANT! A very important step in the POEA process is attending the Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar or PDOS. I am not sure if I should place it in this step, but in any case, the lady at table 3 will ask you if you have already attended. If you haven't yet, she will give you a slot for the next seminar. YOU HAVE TO ATTEND THE SEMINAR or you won't ever be able to proceed with your processing.
8. You also have to undergo a medical examination in one of the four accredited clinics of POEA. You need the medical certificate and a copy of it to proceed. You can find the list of clinics at the guard table. (See my post about: Medical Examination Process for OFWs)
9. After complying with the PDOS and medical examination, go back to POEA and to table 3. The same lady will continue your evaluation. If everything is okay, you will be told to pay the OWWA, PhilHealth, and POEA processing fees. These agencies have their representatives inside the POEA office so you don't have to go anywhere else to pay. It's also best to carry some loose change with you when you pay because the amounts are not exact, except for PhilHealth, which is constant at Php900.00.
10. After paying everything, go back to table 3 to finish your processing. You should get several copies of your Permit to Exit, which the lady at the table will explain to you. There should also be a copy of your PDOS certificate attached to your passport. Also, before you go, you will be asked to submit 1 copy each of all your receipts.

CONGRATULATIONS! You are now ready to work abroad!

  4. @Anonymous:

    It took about 2 weeks to finish everything but we didn't have to go there everyday for two weeks. It took 2 weeks because we had to wait for our seminar schedule before we can proceed to the rest of the process.

  7. embassy for her visa apllication. The agency was the one who searched the employer and became a third party in LMO. She wana come home in Phils then fly from Manila to Canada. But, she heard and red a blog that it takes time and will ask many supporting docs from her employer if she will process her docs in POEA. She got 2 weeks vacation given by her employer in Canada.

  8. Anybody can help me. My sister got work permit visa in UAE as food counter attendant in Canada thru the help of agency from Canada but submitted the papers direct to Canadian embassy for her visa apllication. The agency was the one who searched the employer and became a third party in LMO. She wana come home in Phils then fly from Manila to Canada. But, she heard and red a blog that it takes time and will ask many supporting docs from her employer if she will process her docs in POEA. She got 2 weeks vacation given by her employer in Canada.

  9. @"Anybody can help me...":

    I don't know the case with Manila, but in Davao, I believe 2 weeks is enough to finish the POEA processing.

    It might help if you call POEA ahead and ask about the requirements so that your sister can prepare them before she goes back to the Philippines. That way, she can start processing right away.

  10. Hi everyone thanks for this blog. Just wanna ask if I need to rebook my ticket? I already got the ticket.. the problem is that the release of my visa is on tues(2pm). so I need to finished everything on tuesday afternoon and on wednesday cause the flight schedule is wed at 9pm.

  15. [How about the required validation of the working contract with the philippine embassy in other country before it will be submitted to POEA? Is this a requirement?]

    Actually, when we processed my requirements at POEA, they asked us to have our employer fill out this form regarding housing, food, etc. What we did was send it to our employer in Japan and they checked the working conditions applicable to our contract. Then they sent it back to us to be submitted to POEA. I'm just not sure if this is the case for everyone, but I think it has something to do with working conditions not stipulated in your working contract.

  16. Hi! I'm also on "direct-hire", a research and consultancy firm in Japan hired me. They already sent me the agreement etc and the same instructions, to have them authenticated by the employer in Japan. Do I really need to pay 6k - 7k for processing? There's no agency involved and my employer will be the one to process my COE in Japan and will send to me for me to get my visa. Thank you so much.

  17. to all direct hire it's better to let the accredited agency to handle this ,just for the formalities . because ,if you don't the next problem will be at the immigration in naia . to much problem here processing of documents here . fuck the corrupt people !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kate, thank you for this blog and kudos for becoming an OFW! :)

    Sa mga nagtatanong re: medical, mag-a-undergo ka na nyan before ka pa pumunta sa POEA. Kelangan iyan para maprocess ang Visa/Work Permit dahil kahit saang bansa nirerequire yan para mabigyan ka ng working visa.

    Icheck nyo nalang po sa POEA kung ano ang current accredited clinics nila at icheck din sa pupuntahang bansa kung ano ang accredited clinics nila. Based from that malalaman nyo kung aling lugar pina okay magpamedical na tatanggapin sa visa processing nyo at sa POEA.

    Ang medical ay valid for 3 months, provided sa accredited clinic ng embassy (kung san ka pupuntang bansa) at POEA yung pinili mo.

    Ang 7k na sinabi sa blog na 'to ay for POEA processing only. Di pa kasama dun ang medical at visa. Inuulit ko, yang 6-7k ay eto lamang ang covered na bayarin:

    POEA Processing Fee - US$100 or its peso equivalent
    OWWA membership fee - US$25 or its peso equivalent
    OWWA Medicare - Php900.00

  44. just wanna share my experience.. to those who have a valid employment visa already (e.g. UAE) dumaan na kayo sa POEA and pumunta sa legal na proseso. I learned the hard way, sa pagmamadali namin na makarating sa UAE..thou may visa na naman na-issue sa akin....some advised me na dumaan na lang sa ibang bansa as tourist then lumipad pa Dubai...jusko ang higpit ng immigration natin...magagastusan lang kau tapos haharangin lang nila kau ..ang ending offload ka rin..sayang lang ang ticket ko..roundtrip pa naman un.....parang alam na nila ang modus ng ibang pinoy na me balak lang mag-dive sa ibang bansa...haaayyy..sana ng POEA na lng me from the start...

    1. Yes, I agree. For all those who are aspiring to work abroad, I strongly urge you to undergo the proper process under POEA's supervision because it is for our own safety and insurance while working abroad. We have a lot of benefits as "legal" OFWs. :-)

    2. Ms. Kate tanong lang po OFW na po ako ngayun at employed pa, paano ba pag may bagong job offer at visa na para sa ibang bansa naman. Pwede na po ba ako magtravel diretso sa ibang bansa at hindi na dadaan or babalik pa ulit sa Pilipinas para lang sa POEA? Salamat po.

    1. As far as I know, the company has to be "registered" in POEA. If not, then the company first has to register before they can hire Filipino workers. So maybe they are still processing the registration that's why it's taking some time.

    Destination country is Malaysia.

    1. I think that would be a better idea, just to make sure that some company is legit and to protect the workers that making sure they are doing the job as per contract, and not to be doing some other things.

  74. Hello, I have been working in Bahrain and have been a direct hired in the second company where I worked there.
    I went to POEA today to register after I got offloaded last april 24th having a commercial visa which is convirtible to a working visa and was verified by the Kuwait embassy before I went to the airport. The immigration refused me to go out of the country and intstructed me to ask my employer to send me the contract and to register as overseas contract worker at POEA. When they checked the company where I will be working, it showed that it is registered and was dealing with one of the agencies here.Why did the guy in POEA told me to go to that agency for them to process my documents while I was offered this job from Bahrain and I am a direct hire?
    I have every documents needed including medical except the OEC. Why do they want me to spend more money dealing with an agency? This so rediculous!

    Good morning!

    I want to know If what you've made processed is also same of process going to Alaska?

    What are the document I need to process?

    Ano ba ang mauuna after malakad ng mga supporting documents? DFA OR POEA?

    I am direct hire, and it was my first time. It was also his first time (my employer) to hire direct in the Philippines.

    Kindly give me guidelines please?... So my mind would be enlighten.

      I already have,the only thing I don't have is NBI Clearance, Birth Certificate. Is the contract agreement, working visa comes from my employer?

      If I receive and complete my documents what's next?

      Delete
    3. Yes, the contract is very important and you are supposed to get it from your company. As for the working visa, you have to apply for that for yourself. Your company will not give you the working visa. But these will not be needed yet during the passport processing.

      And the NBI clearance is really not needed. ^^

    1. In that case, you have to apply through an agency. I'm sorry I am not familiar with the processing, but I do know that it takes quite some time and money.

      Your case is the same as one of my co-worker's case when he applied. When he applied, our company has already reached the limit for direct hires. So he had to apply through an agency. There was a lot of paperwork involved and he even had to fly from Davao to Manila to appear in court.

      It's best that you consult with your company about this and ask if they will shoulder the expenses that will be incurred during the processing. And it would be best to start early because my co-worker's case took around 2 months.

  85. This week I went to POEA as instructed by the Malaysian Embassy after I received my visa. So I went to POEA - Name Hire Division and presented my Passport, Medical Examination, and my Employment Contract. As they evaluate my papers they found out that my Employment Contract is NOT verified by POLO. Right now I am stucked. They keep on telling me that it is a new rule in POEA being implemented even for skilled workers/professionals bound to Malaysia. So I advice before going to POEA, your employment contract should be verified by POLO and authenticated by Philippine Embassy in Malaysia so you can save TIME. POEA is a bullshit they are very strict but still many Filipinos are being fooled by illegal recruiter.

Kaya po lahat ng visa ay e-visa (direct hire)at iba pang mga requirements through scans, uploads at downloads ang kalakalaan. lahat ng necessary documents at dadaan sa POLO Jordan dahil sila ang mag verify at authenticate bago nila ipasa sa Bagdadh office. ang mobile bagdadh pe will do the final authentication with their stamp affix tpos my new employer will take it to bagdadh office and send to me pra ma process sa poea. mahabang proceso at matagal pero cgrado at walang aberya pag process ng poea kc verified at authenticated lahat ng POLO at PE. ito ang mga documents na i produce pra sa direct hire:
      1.Job Contract
      2.Working visa (indicated the name of employer)
      3.Applicant passport (colored scan)
      4.Employer's passport or its representative
      5.Company's profile
      6.Company's business license

      Plus 'yong ocular visit ng place/company by POLO or POLO's report about the company to poea.

    1. As what some previous posters said, POEA requires your employer to be POLO-accredited. I'm not familiar with this process but I think you should check with your employer if they are POLO-accredited. If not, then they should probably coordinate with POEA and have the company accredited in order to hire Filipinos legally.

  99. I have a problem with the requirement of authenticated employment contract for name hire.

    POEA told me that since I am a woman and my job position as a CQE Specialist is considered a low-skilled work, i have to authenticate my contract. My husband who will also work in the same company does not need the authenticated copy of the contract.

    The procedure of authentication in POLO Shanghai is to notarize first in the local notary public office, then to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Shanghai and then by POLO - Shanghai.

    The problem that I am facing is that, according to my future employer, the notary public office cannot do the authentication without our presence, because we have to sign the document on the spot. Our signatures and the presence of the company representative are not enough.

    How can I be there when the requirement to go out of the country is the same thing I need to be able to be physically present?

    POLO - Shanghai said that my employer should try other notary public offices who can do notarize without our presence, but so far, others have the same requirement - our presence.

    I think there is a problem with this procedure. There should be an option for this, but I do not know who I should talk to. Is there any other way to solve this problem? Please help.

    Thanks!

  129. Hello. Na experience namin na di na daw kami pwedeng mag apply as direct hired kasi 10 lang daw na empleyado ang pwedeng ma direct hire. Pero natapos na namin lahat ng papeles, pero sa POEA, di kami pinayagan mag PDOS kasi dadaan daw kami dapat sa POEA-accredited agency. Pinagbabayad kami ng agency ng full payment, eh bakit? Natapos na namin halos lahat ng proseso, wala na halos silang gagawin. Formality sake nalang na dadaan kami kuno sa kanila dahil yun ang bilin ng POEA, At ano ba ang pinagkaiba ng first 10 direct hired sa 11th and other succeeding applicants? Putang inang Pilipinas ito! Ang gulo gulo. Nag aapply ka ng maayos eh, ang gulo gulo ng policy nyo POEA!

    1. Wala na daw direct hire ngayon at ang tinatawag na direct hire is kung ang kompanyang naghihire sa iyo ay:
      According ito sa website ng POEA:

      DIRECT – HIRING SERVICES
      (POEA GBR No. 4 Series 2007)
      Pursuant to Article 18 of the Labor Code, POEA is directed to process the employment contracts of workers who are directly hired by the following employers:

      Member of the diplomatic corps; and
      International organizations.

      All other foreign employers shall secure the approval of the Secretary of Labor and Employment before the employment contracts of the workers whom they have directly hired are processed.
      Foreign employers who are registered/accredited with private recruitment agencies are not allowed to directly hire workers.

      Ask ko lang nakapagpasauthenticate ba kayo ng employment contract sa POLO kung san bansa kayo pupunta?
