As mentioned earlier in a previous news post, the DMW office is now in a transition period. The newly created OFW department (Department of Migrant Workers) is in an implementation stage and will soon be fully operational in 2023. As of the moment, the POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration) website is one of the new changes that can clearly be seen by overseas Filipino workers who access this page.
The DMW website is still under construction but based on the current progress, it will be a one-stop-shop for all things related to OFWs. It will feature an online application and registration system, updated lists of job vacancies, and other important information that every migrant worker needs to know.
POEA.GOV.PH Error Page
The POEA.GOV.PH is no longer working and it results to an Error page. So were do Filipinos access this website if they want to check the accredited agencies, process OEC Balik Manggagawa certificates, or learn more information about working abroad as an OFW? The new website is now DMW.GOV.PH
We understand that these changes can be confusing and challenging for some of our readers. But the PH government agency is continuously working hard to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information about the OFW industry.
The website of the Department of Migrant Workers can be accessed at DMW.GOV.PH. This is the new website URL that you should go moving forward as this is the official website of the agency in-charge of OFWs.
We advise our readers to bookmark this website for future reference as this will be the main source of information about working abroad, job vacancies, online application and registration, and other important announcements from the DMW.
What is the Department of Migrant Workers?
The Department of Migrant Workers is a government agency that is in-charge of Overseas Filipino workers. This includes processing of documents, deployment, and monitoring of OFWs. The agency also provides assistance to OFWs in case of emergencies and implements policies to protect their rights and welfare.
This new agency was implemented in response to the challenges faced by our migrant workers. These include illegal recruitment, human trafficking, and abuse and exploitation by foreign employers.
The DMW will work towards improving the working conditions of our OFWs and ensuring that their rights are protected. The agency will also provide assistance in case of emergencies and implement policies to protect their rights and welfare.
OEC Certificate in DMW Website
One of the main online services that OFWs access in the POEA website is the processing of Overseas Employment Certificates (OEC). Since the previous POEA website URL is no longer working, it is important that if you apply for an OEC online, you can apply by going to the DMW eRegistration Portal at https://onlineservices.dmw.gov.ph/OnlineServices/POEAOnline.aspx
So as a summary, please be advised of these changes so that you can easily access the DMW website for your OFW needs. The URL is now DMW.GOV.PH and the agency in-charge is the Department of Migrant Workers.
The POEA website is no longer working and has been replaced with a new website URL – DMW.GOV.PH. This website is now the official source of information for all things related to OFWs, including job vacancies, online application and registration system, and other important announcements from the DMW. We advise our readers to bookmark this website for future reference.
