    • Will be visiting the Philippines for 5 days or less. The OFW counters at the airports would only give you clearance (called emergency OEC) when you have your work visa and would be going back to your country of employment within 5 days. Anything other than that, you should go to POEA offices or distribution centers.

      You would be given an OEC that is valid for only 24 hours, so you’d typically do this right before leaving Manila, on the same day as your flight.

      • gud day po ask ko lng po pno po at ano need ko n papers dlin kc po viza ko po now is house wife dti po me work ako now full house wife n lng po ako ano po document ang need ko n dlin mag bbakasyon po ako sa sept 2016 marami po salamat sana po matulungan nyo ako

    • Hi Fatima, In your case the POE staff can answer your problem, they have the authorization to edit it, in our part we cannot edit or update the employer name all you can see with (*) is the part the we cannot update.

  55. San po b makikita ung last oec number hindi ko po makita sa resibo ko last year nag naayos q n din po ung mga details q sa online pero lumalabas po na mag seset ako ng appointment

    • Sa FIRST SIGN-UP po ng BMONLINE ang OEC number na hinahanap ay yung pong kaunaunahang OEC nyo ng una kayong umalis – kasa-kasama ang kontrata nyo at ng PRE-DEPARTURE seminar certificate of attendance.

    • ang flight na tinantanong po – ung flight nyo paaalis ng Pilipinas. Kasi po ang OEC ang validity na ibinibigay ay 60 days FROM processed date UP TO – EXIT DATE from Philippines.

      • Hi Ms Judith..pwd po ba mka kuha ng OEC?kc i applied online March 20,2017 and but my departure in the philippines will be on June 13,2017..lately i’ve noticed that it has 2 months validity…i applied it earlier than my planned departure…only to find out that it will be expired on May 19,2017…do i need to get a new OEC?

  58. Hi miss abby!
    I have a few questions regarding OEC?i hope you can help me miss abby,last june 3 2016 my oec i use already! But now i am in the philippines some personal matters,
    Just two weeks,do i need to get oec again?
    At the same Emplyer!
    If ever need it again to appy a oec? The same procedure before?
    Thanks pls i need your help miss abby!

    • Ms Lexie…
      Ang OEC po ay one time usage lang po pag-exit ng Pilipinas. May validity po ito ng 60 days hanggang magexit o lumabas kayo ng Pilipinas.
      Kailangan nyo pong kumuha ulit ng OEC… magpagregister na po kayo BMONLINE para maka-avail kayo next time ng EXEMPTION kung wala pa po kayong record online.
      Mas mabilis po kung may record kayo online. Dahil kung wala kailangan nyo po uling pumila sa POEA or sa mga offsite offices po.

    As of this time, kapag nakapagavail kayo ng OEC EXEMPTION – which in turn bibigyan kayo ng BM EXEMPTION NUMBER – na kailangan i screenshot nyo o kunan nyo sa cellphone nyo para maipakita sa immigration. Walang available na black and white na makikita sa transactions which ang magiging basehan mo na lang ay ung photo na kinunan mo sa monitor. Yung PICTURE ng BM EXEMPTION NUMBER na kinunan mo ang ipapakita mo ngayon pagdating mo sa immigration. Ang immigration officer naman in turn may fifill-up na paper at ibibigay sau kasama ang passport mo at ipapaiwan ang boarding pass mo then pababalikin ka sa POEA para ipavalidate mo. HASSLE….. balik ka ulit sa immigration – sisingit ka sa mga nakapila dala dala mo ulit ang mga carry-ons mo at ipapakita mo ulit sa immigration officer yung validation ng POEA. Doon matatapos ang ordeal ng isang OFW na akala natin eh FULLY EXEMPTED na sa hirap ng pagpaprocess ng OEC. HOPE THIS HELPS ALL OF US and sana mabasa ng POEA at ng mabago ang sistema.

  60. Sir./Mdm.:ask lng po kaka issue lng po ng oec skin last oct.21,2016 pro d nman aq mka uwe n this mo.for my employers reason…need q po b kuha ulit ng oec khit dq nman po ngmit?uwe dw po aq by chrismas pro expire oec q dec.20…vacation po for 2wks only

  98. I’ve just been at the Phil Consulate Jeddah today at its new location: 4663 Fajr St., Al-Rehab District; Google took me there. Better location – bigger space; well sign-posted (with labels on the walls and doors for everyone to see & be guided where to go); staff at the gate helpful; I came here for the OEC (I registered online, printed the needed info, but the appointment page was blank so I had to come here). OWWA staff explained that OECs are taken in the Philippines. On the appointment page –, slots are available if a Philippine location is chosen). I wish the BM website or the Phil Consulate-Jeddah website had a notice on this to eliminate the need to visit the consulate re: the said matter. I hope this info helps those in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

  99. Hi! We’ve been here for 4 hours to get an OEC but it seems it didn’t work on this site and we go through the process so digusting…. is this the kind of system we have in the Philippines.

  100. Good Day Kabayan Josepine! This is the official link of BMonline, You can direct Go to the POEA Ortigas, You can ask question to the ONE STOP SERVICE CENTER FOR OFWS or Go to the help desk of BMONLINE.

    Another Option! Go to the canteen of POEA theirs a team their they just need your email address and password for the BMonline Log In, What you need to do is give the email and adress to them, seat and relax after 30 minutes you have a copy of your OEC. For the Print of OEC Exemption 20.00 and for OEC 50.00.
