POEA Governing Board Resolution No. 12, Series of 2016, exempts workers returning to the same employer from securing Overseas Employment Certificates (OEC).  However, workers must register at for  the  OEC exemption procedures.

IPAMS continues to assist workers who may need assistance for travel exit processing - those who encounter registration problems and are unable to successfully register for their OEC exemption. Because of IPAMS' excellent record in the Recruitment Industry, the POEA still has given IPAMS the authority to sign and issue OECs.

For those needing IPAMS’ assistance,  here’s what you need to do:

STEP 1: Download the Guidelines Form. This is best printed out on 8.5" x 11" paper.

STEP 2: Download the Information Sheet and also print out.

STEP 3: With complete documents on hand, proceed to IPAMS Employee Relations Department located at the Ground Floor of IPAMS Bldg.  You will be given your OEC in no time at all.  If you have any questions,  call us at our office numbers found in the Contacts page.

Maximize your time and enjoy your vacation in the Philippines!
