We were just discussing with my friends about the difficulty in getting an Overseas Employment Certificate or what is famously known as "OEC". This is a document issued by the Philippine Embassy for Overseas Foreign Workers so that they will not pay the Terminal Fee and the Travel Tax at the Philippine Airport upon departure.
Why do I need an OEC - Related PostMy friend asked me why the Philippine Embassy doesn't have any measures in reducing the queuing time just to get this OEC. We have some ideas in mind, thinking about the best process that the embassy might implement.
The Philippine Embassy Answered!
We then found out that the Philippine Embassy is way ahead from our idea. Starting today, December 3, 2012, all OFWs who want to get an OEC at the Embassy will now apply for an appointment online.
The process is simple, you just go online with this link:
Follow the procedure, click the Set an Appointment and fill up all the forms. Bring all necessary documents in getting the OEC.
The process of claiming the OEC personally takes around 30 minutes. This is way better than 1 to 1.5 hours of waiting.
