The Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Dubai issued an advisory warning OFWs against the online system processing of Overseas Employment Certificates (OEC) offered by individuals not affiliated with the agency.
The agency received reports of some individuals offering OEC-related services, such as online registration and acquiring OEC exemption in exchange for payment.
POLO Dubai reminds OFWs that such individuals are not affiliated with POLO Dubai nor
are they authorized to offer such services.
The advisory also reiterated that signing up for the e-registration, setting up an OEC appointment, and acquiring an OEC exemption through the online system are free.
Applicants will only be asked to pay when applying for a new OEC in instances such as first-time registration, change of employer, and change of job site.
Once eligibility is secured, an OEC Exemption may be generated through the applicant’s online system account (POPS-BaM) for free.
To be guided, applicants are urged to follow these steps:
