OFW Guide: How to Get iDOLE OFW ID Card Online

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.
