The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) on Tuesday, November 6, announced that OFW e-cards can also be used to avail of services offered by Philippine government offices stationed abroad.

During the launching of the e-cards at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City, OWWA administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said that OFW e-card holders may also present the cards at the Philippine Overseas Labor Offices (POLO) and embassies and/or consulates to avail of OWWA services and benefits.

Among the benefits offered by OWWA include welfare services, scholarships, training programs and other social benefits.

The card is available for free to all Balik-Manggagawa OFWs with an active OWWA membership, a valid Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) to Exemption Number, and a valid passport.

The e-card also has a digital version through the OWWA mobile app and may also serve as a valid government ID. It also contains a unique OFW membership number and QR (quick response) code as security features to prevent data breach.

OWWA members who would like to apply for an OFW e-card may visit the OWWA website, www.owwa.gov.ph. OFWs may claim their e-card upon return to the Philippines or through their family member, if they present an authorization letter and a copy of the OFW’s passport identification page.

The card is expected to benefit an estimated 250,000 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in its first phase of implementation. More OFWs will benefit from the project in the following years. The e-cards are expected to reduce documentary requirements for OFWs who seek to avail of the programs and benefits offered by OWWA.
