OEC is available in Korea

An OFW named Cris sent me an email yesterday asking me to help disseminate information that OEC is now available in Korea. Since I’m not an OFW I didn’t have any idea what that is. He sent a follow-up email and here’s his explanation:

Thank you for your quick response and an apology for not giving you the OEC information.
OEC (Overseas Employment Certificate or Overseas Exit Clearance) is a requirement under the Rules and Regulation of the POEA to help ensure that Overseas Filipino Workers are properly documented and protected prior to their exit in the Philippines and also gives them exemption in paying the travel tax and airport terminal fee.
Normally a vacationing OFW spend a day at the POEA offices in the Philippines inorder to acquire this exit not mentioning the “hirap ng siksikan” on Christmas and other peak vacation seasons.
When we arrived here in Seoul last year and we were applying for it, we were surprised that the embassy does not issue it and we must write a request for it…pambihira talaga!
Anyway we are very glad now coz effective Feb.15 it will be readily available at the Philippine Embassy . The problem I see is that information dissemination is quite ineffective ….so this is the reason why I am requesting your help if possible. Thanks again and hope to at least meet you before we leave Korea.
Respectfully yours,
Cris A.

Thank you Mr. Cris A. for that information.
