The usual three-day process of getting an Overseas Employment Certificate, the last requirement needed before one can work abroad, can now last 3 weeks up to a month and OFWs are in distress.

Once all required documents are submitted, it will undergo evaluation, approval from POEA administration and endorsement from Department of Labor and Employment before OEC will be released.

In an interview with ABS CBN News, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello said that this problem occurred when POEA Rules and Regulations was amended last 2016.

Three categories were added under the list of workers exempted from direct hire ban: workers endorsed by Philippine Overseas Labor Offices, professional and skilled workers and those hired by relatives or family members.

POEA goes through direct hires’ contract one by one which make the process longer while others are lacking some requirements, added Bello.
