The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has expanded its facilities to serve thousands of vacationing overseas Filipino workers that will need their exit clearance. 

However, POEA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said that the additional processing centers will not process exit clearance of household service workers, undocumented workers with no existing record at the POEA database, workers who have changed employers, workers bound for restricted/banned countries, workers who are in the watchlist and workers whose employers are watchlisted. 

The POEA has set up counters at PAG-IBIG in Makati City and at the OWWA central office in Pasay City aside from the Balik-Manggagawa offices in Trinoma, Quezon City, Duty Free Paranaque and SM Manila. 

The POEA has also adjusted office hours in their central office in Ortigas to accommodate those who will be coming early in the morning. 

On December 26 and January 2, 3 and 6, Balik-Manggagawa counters will open at 6:00 A.M. Counters will also open on January 4 (Saturday) from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon. 
To spare themselves from the long lines at the POEA offices, Cacdac is reminding returning OFWs to make use of the Balik-Manggagawa online appointment system available at bmappointment.poea.gov.ph. 

OFWs may also get their exit clearance or OEC at the POEA regional offices while they are in their respective provinces. 

The documentary requirements for those using the appointment system and walk-in processing are the same: Passport valid for 6 months from time of departure, valid working visa/work permit and proof of employment such as certificate of employment, company ID, pay slip, and other equivalent document.
