Employment contract verification is mandatory for Filipino employees, known as Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the UAE and around the world.
In Dubai, contract verification can be done through the Migrant Workers Office (MWO) in Dubai and Northern Emirates. The MWO Dubai and Northern Emirates was previously known as POLO-Dubai.

Employment contract verification is mandatory for OFWs who were not previously registered with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) or have no existing record of deployment with POEA.
Here are four ways to verify an employment contract in MWO Dubai:
You can log on to https://owwadubaiappointmentsystem.setmore.com/
You can walk-in to the office a day before your scheduled flight to the Philippines. Bring a copy of your confirmed flight booking.
You can submit documents online via https://www.polodubaiportal.org under the Online Submission System tab. The online submission form is open every Monday. Once your submission is approved, you can collect your verified contract and pay the fee at the MWO on the date and time of your set appointment.
Those who are outside the UAE can send an authorized representative to have their contract verified. The authorized representative can come to the MWO office five days before your return flight to the UAE, or three days before your OEC issuance appointment at POEA.
Meanwhile, the MWO warned Filipino applicants against dealing with “fixers”, saying that they should not pay unauthorized personnel to process the verification of their employment contract. ICA/Expat Media
