As a Filipino working overseas, I’m sure you have encountered the hassle of obtaining an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC), which serves as your proof or license that you are working legally in your respective country. Without your OEC, you would not be allowed to leave the Philippines and return to your country of employment, as it serves as your travel document and exit pass as well.

The hassle, however, lies in the fact that getting an OEC is time consuming, as you have to endure a long trip just to go to the Philippine Embassy or the Philippine Consulate General, line-up for long queues, and then pay for extra fees.

Furthermore, having to secure this piece of paper can be quite challenging. Once gone, you would have to file for another one again.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is set to launch a special ID card from the former form of ID system which is Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC). The iDole is the new and improved OFW identification card (ID) that comes with OFW ID number with multiple usage you wouldn’t have imagined before.

What are the requirements to get my iDole OFW ID?

All of you have to do is bring primary to secondary identification cards for identity confirmations before visiting the nearest regional office in your place or go to the main office of DOLE to get your iDOLE ID.

Hi. What if this is the very first time going back in PH. No OEC yet ang everything. What do I need to present? Just employment contract and visa?

Application is not needed. If you are an OFW, you will be given the iDOLE ID because your name is already in the official roster of OFWs, so they will start processing your ID and we will give it to you.”

Para sa lahat ng kabayan paki basa at paki understand po muna ng mga guidlines sa pag kuha ng OFW ID nang hinde po tayo maguluhan. Kung may mga katanungan para sa mga kabayan natin at kapwa OFW mag tanung lang po tayo sa consulate office at sa mga embassy kung saang bansa po tayo naroon. Wag po tayo mag tanung sa kung sinu lang na mga kasama o mga kaibigan lalo na kung hinde pa sila nakaka kuha ng OFW card, eto po ay para maiwasan ang pag kalito ay hinde pag kakaroon ng problema kung kayo ay kukuha… Read more »

Napansin ko po sa ID yong Employer/Company name. Paano po yong tulad namin sa HK na minsan di natatapos ang kontrata at nagpapalipat-lipat sa ibang amo. Lalo na kung mataon na patapos na sa kontrata pag maissue-han ng ID ngunit may planong lumipat sa ibang amo. Sana di na ilagay ang employer/company name kundi jobsite na lang para di magulo ang record at maging panibagong problema sa ofw concerned. Salamat po.

Ito po ay walang bayad at kailangang i-avail. Wala pong product na bibilhin para ma avail niyo ang OFW I.D. card. Tandaan po ninyo mga kababayan, ito po ay personal appearance.

Sa pagkakaintindi ko pag nasa labas ka pa ng bansa you still need to apply for OEC, pagdating mo ng Pinas all you have to do is,you just go to the nearest DOLE main office in your place,at ipresent mo yung OEC mo and they will process your IDOLE card..
Yun ang pagkakaintindi ko mga Bes!!
So that for the next time you will go for home leave you not need to apply for OEC again..
From Singapore OFW din po ako

Anong latest news sa idole? effective na ba yan sa mga paalis ngayong August? Magbabakasyon ako sa August 27 at babalik din agad ako sa Sep 5. Paano ako makakasiguro na makakakuha na agad ako ng ID at ano ang mangyayari kung walang available na slot during this period? Accepted pa rin po ba ang BM Exemption? Kasi para sa akin mas mainam pa rin ung BM Exemption, walang pila, walang bayad, walang hassle sa mga ofw na nagbabakasyon. Di na nakakasagabal sa mga katulad kong saglit lang kung makapag bakasyon
