13 Sep. 2021

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has received reports regarding individuals in Facebook groups and pages advertising assistance in the processing of OFW e-registration, pre-employment orientation seminar (PEOS), and information sheet. These enterprising individua ls claim that for a fee, they would be able to assist in the creation of e-registration accounts or the issuance of PEOS certificates and OFW information sheets.

There is no charge for obtaining an e-reg ist ration account and an OFW Information Sheet. Moreover, the online pre-employment orientation seminar (PEOS) is a learning facility that must be undertaken by individuals who intend to work overseas, which aims to guide jobseekers to understand the realities of working abroad. The PEOS certificate is issued free of charge to all individuals who are able to finish the learning modules in the PEOS.

The public is also warned about the risk of providing private and persona I information to strangers, as these may be used in unlawful activities. Overseas job seekers are advised to visit the POEA’ s official website, www.poea.gov.ph, for information   and assistance regarding   e-registration, PEOS, and information sheet.

The POEA also encourages overseas jobseekers to be more  cautious and to immediately report individuals who engage in the above illegal activities to the Operations and Surveillance Division via email osd@poea.gov.ph or the POEA Anti­ Illegal Recruitment  Branch Facebook Page  at  www.facebook.com/airbranch.
