      first time ko po kasing naka encounter ng situation po ng gaya sa inyo.

    • Walang magiging prob sa pag kuha mo dyan ng OEC. ung sa passport mo na lng pa extend mo na lng muna para safe ka. Ang pagkakaalam ko kasi dapat may 6 months pa ung passport before mag expire kung mag ttravel abroad. Just to be safe ika nga…

  8. Gd pm po., tanong kulang po kung kailangan paho bang I renew employment contract para magbayad ng OEC
    Last 2011 pa ho yung contract ko ., same employer ( house maid ) and balak ko pong mag travel this Dec2014 n my
    Passport expired may 2015 do I need to renew my passport or not ? Thank you

    • Kailangan nyo pong irenew ung passport nyo or iextend muna

      • Gd pm po ulit., so yung employment contract di nho kailangan irenew to pay for the OEC?

        • No need. as long as you a copy at wala namang babaguhin sa contract mo. not unless kung may binago or babaguhin sa contract mo, then kailangan mong magadala

  9. Same case here, but I am planning on going for a vacation next year. Should I proceed to the POLO and have myself documented as an OFW, or can I process it next year, say a month or two before my planned leave? Thanks.

    • If your membership is already expired or about to expire, then yes you should
