The POEA e-Registration System records data of laborers who intend to work abroad. Registering through their website is important to find new work abroad as it is needed for all OFWs before their exit. Job seekers will receive a registration number after the registration process has finished.
Other than registering for overseas employment, the POEA e-Registration System offers different functions:
- provide information about job vacancies in other countries
- provide job vacancies with POEA-licensed recruitment agencies
- notify applicants on the status of job applications
- verify transactions status
- collect processing fees
- accept requests for the registration of principals or employers
- accept applications to Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC)
- provide viewing of employment contracts
