A Must Registration Of All OFWs Who Plans To Go Home. The Returning OFW Mandatory Registration
The Department Labor of The Philippines launches a new tracking system for all overseas Filipino workers plans to go back in the Philippines during the pandemic crisis. The new Returning OFW Mandatory Registration Policy. “An oasis symbolizes hope in a desert of trials. The system that we created aims to give our OFWs a ray of hope by ensuring that we provide them efficient and timely assistance to ease their anxieties when returning home in the midst of this pandemic,” Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said on a press briefing last Thursday. Bello said the repatriation tracking system will make the government more responsive and prepared to accommodate all Overseas Filipino Workers who will arrived.
“Through this system, the government can track the whereabouts of our returning OFWs and provide them prompt assistance and relief upon their return to the country,” Bello said. The OASIS, developed by seasoned crisis management personnel from DOLE, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), aims to extend fast and appropriate government assistance to workers who lost their jobs abroad and were forced to go home.
The system, developed and run by the DOLE Command Center, also serves as a source of information for affected OFWs by the pandemic to help the government determine and immediately provide the kind of support they need once they land at the country’s airports.
The system will provide information to determine arriving OFWs in a number of ways to facilitate organized arrival at the airport, efficient swab testing, and rapid pick up and transport to their respective hotels and homes and other necessary processes. To be tracked, OFWs bound for home are requested to register online through oasis.owwa.gov.ph. The forms should be completely fulfilled by the OFWs to make the tracking system work effectively.
