POEA Direct hire ban still on-going

My friend who is bound to japan for work next month said that when called POEA, he's been told that there's an on-going ban for direct hires.

May nakapagprocess na ba sa inyo recently?

    Ganyan din sabi sa friend ko. Pinapadaan sya sa agency which is sobrang hassle kasi yung agency hindi basta basta tumatanggap ng hindi nila accredited yung company na employer mo. So dun pa lang mukhang mahabang araw na ang gugugulin to provide requirements ng agency from the company.

    Yung problem pa nya is placement fee. Which is amounting to 1 month salary daw according sa agency na nilapitan nya.

    Hassle din kasi kailangan pa ipa-POLO verified yung contract, etc.
  • @madi07 requirement po pala saan yung job contract verification?
  • thx for the heads up...

    tangina na man yan, bwisit gobyerno naten.
  • so pano yan kung makakuha ka ng role dito sa SG, tatangihan ka ng POEA/Phil Embassy kase hindi through agency? what a crock of shit. lol.
  • Section 123 of the 2016 Revised POEA Rules and Regulations prohibits foreign employers from directly hiring Filipinos for overseas jobs. This is the general rule.

    This ban on direct hiring, however, has a few exceptions.

    Members of the diplomatic corps, international organizations, heads of state and government officials with the rank of deputy minister (or undersecretary) or higher, are exempted from the ban. Lower ranking foreign government officials may also hire directly provided the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) —the office of the Department of Labor and Employment abroad —favorably endorses the direct employment of Filipinos.

    Professionals and highly skilled workers can also be hired directly provided that their work contracts have terms and conditions above and beyond the standards set by the POEA. Likewise, exempted from the ban are workers hired by a Filipino relative or family member who is a permanent residence of the country where he or she intends to work.
  • so paano na lang? :(
    Mabuti sana kung madali makipagusap sa mga agencies dito. Eh yung iba, kung kausapin ka...parang may malaking utang na loob ka sa kanila. kung sungitan ka ganon ganon na lang. Tapos ang taas pa ng placement fee.
  • Teka, so pano yan? Nag iissue pba sila ng OEC? Uwi pa nman sana ako.
  • Share ko lang po experience ng friend ko na nag process din sa POEA.

    Kailangan pong documents galing sa company nya:
    - IPA with stamp
    - Signed Contract with stamp every pages (ipapa red ribbon po ito sa Philippine embassy)
    - photocopy of ACRA with stamp
    - photocopy of IC (employer)
    - standard contract from Philippine Embassy (signed and stamp by employer) hinihingi po itong format na to sa embassy.

    Ibibigay lang po lahat yan sa POEA tapos kailangan nya pa medical and PDOS.

    Yung sa friend ko 2 weeks nya natapos lahat yan. Natagalan lang sa pag padala ng document pa pinas-sg-pinas.

    Na offload din kasi sya sa pinas kaya kailangan nya talagang mag ayos ng papers bago makaalis ulit.

    Hindi naman po naka BAN ang direct hire sa professionals basta kailangan lang talaga ipa red ribbon ang documents.

  • @candy grabe naman sila. may mga company dito sg na ayaw ng ganyan ka hassle, tulad ng company ng sister ko. :( baka bitawan na sya ng employer since madami pa mag aaply na nandito sa sg. syempre sa agency most of the time 2mos salary ung hinihingi, tulad nung sa friend ko na dumaan sa agency from philippines. so kung 2600 ung sahod eh $5200 and ilalabas mo sa agency. parang nag agency na din dito sa singapore. kung hindi lang na atoa ung sister ko di na need gawin to eh. haaay :( salamat din sa pag clear. ung sa embassy kasi ang sabi saken BAN na daw ang direct hire. kelangan talaga dumaan sa agency. pero tatwag ulit ako, to confirm kung tama ba ung sinabi ng staff na nakausap ko.

    @goblinsbride nasa list of requirements un sa poea. under #3. kelangan verified and duly authenticated by philippine embassy. korek, parang utang na loob naten ung pagtulong saten. masyadong matataray ung employees sa government. palaging aburido, dapat nga helpful ung attitude nila hindi ung mag taray taray sila. tayo naman nagpapsahod sa knila eh. hindi ko nilalahat. pero mostly sa mga government staff sa pinas di approachable. may mga mangilan ngilan lang talaga na willing to assist at help. siguro sa 10 times kong pagpunta sa mga government office, once lang ako naging satisfied sa service. dito sa sg, ung nakausap ko sa phone sa ph embassy di pa ko tapos magsalita, may sagot na agad. parang tinatapos agad ung query ko.

  • @madi07 oo mahirap kausap yung mga nasa embassy lahat sila matataray. Ayaw nila talaga mag entertain ng mga direct hire. Mas lalo na sa Pinas kasi mas madaming paperworks yun para sakanila kaya gusto nilang naka agency lang. Ilang beses din sila nilapitan ng friend ko. Kasi laging sinasabi na ban ang direct hire pero may excemption talaga sya.

    Mahirap kumuha ng requirements sa SG kasi di sila nagbibigay ng copy ng IC nila.
  • @candy thanks for the info. Anong agency yung kinausap ng friend mo na papunta ng sg? Para lang ma-help din yung ibang naghahanap ng reputable agencies na papunta ng sg.
  • so pano yan kung nakakuha ka na ng trabaho na bago dito sa SG, in fact nag start ka na ng work mga 2 months na, tapos uwi ka ng pinas para mag bakasyon, haharangin ka ganun? lol. i report na yan sa Kulang Sa Pansin TV Patrol
  • Owwa member na po kayo? Baka for new employees lng yan? Not sure though.
  • Last time na nag-process ako as direct hire thru agency, ito yung mga requirements na hiningi sakin. Though hindi sa SG to. sa ibang country.

    List of requirements for NAME HIRE/ DIRECT HIRE PROCESS (POEA- requesting for OEC (Overseas Employment Cert.):

    1. Passport
    2. Individual Employment Contract (POLO verified)

    5. NBI Clearance (optional)
    6. Medical Certificate
    7. Any Valid I.D of the Employer (passport)
    8. Employer's Company Profile
    9. POEA processing fee worth Php 8,600.00 (includes PDOS cert., and OEC= exit clearance) - (will be released with in the day, upon the approval of the evaluators)
  • @JuanDeLaCruz Sa case mo po, bago ka umuwi, try mo magpa member muna ng OWWA sa embassy dito at kumuha ka na rin on OEC para paguwi mo di ka na harangin pabalik.

  • Wala silang paki sa hassle na idudulot niyan ang mahalaga yung Php 8,600.00 na matatanggap nila.
  • so ibig sabihin kahit na mag walk in sa SG kelangan pa din mag asikaso ng mga ganyan dito sa PH?
  • Lahat po ng batas satin may butas. Hanapin nyo lang yun at tiyak na malalagpasan nyo yan. Toink!!!!!
  • Mas preferred po ba na magpamember ng OWWA and mag file for OEC dito sa SG kesa sa atin? Mabilis din po ba pag dito?
  • @mna Kung gusto mo pong maging maganda ang bakasyon mo, mabuti ng iprocess mo lahat yan dito bago ka umuwi. Panu kung may hingin silang requirements na hindi mo dala?
  • Madali lang din dito sa SG.
  • @candy eto pong mga requirements may questions ako. ikaw po ba nag process dito sa sg?

    Kailangan pong documents galing sa company nya:
    - IPA with stamp
    *(company stamp po no?)

    - Signed Contract with stamp every pages (ipapa red ribbon po ito sa Philippine embassy)
    *(1. signed din po ba dapat ng employee? kasi if ganun need pa ipa sign sa pinas kasi nadun ung sis ko )
    *(2. ipapa red ribbon po dito sa sg then ipapadala sa pinas?magkano po pa red ribbon nya?)

    - photocopy of ACRA with stamp
    *(*(company stamp po no?)

    - photocopy of IC (employer)

    - standard contract from Philippine Embassy (signed and stamp by employer) hinihingi po itong format na to sa embassy.
    *(pede po ba to makuha thru email or need physically mag punta dun?)

    Thank you ng madami @candy :smile:
  • @madi07 hindi ba pwedeng magexit na lang muna sa ibang bansa ang sister mo like Thailand before going to SG para yun appeal/clearance at IPA na lang ang poproblemahin nya? Yung pagkuha ng oec sa pilipinas is one million times mas mahirap kesa pag kinuha nyo dito sa SG. Wala pang 10 mins nakuha ko na agad oec ko nun first time ako kumuha nun august.

    Hassle talaga. I know there's a reason why they are doing what they're doing. Pero it feels like they are preventing pinoys in getting much better living. Though may mga pasaway din naman kasi kaya siguro naghihigpit sila. Ang hassle and gastos lang ng ginagawa nial sa mga direct hires ngayon.

    Another friend of mine have a visa to a country in europe since last month. Flight na din sana niya early october. Di rin siya makaalis because of POEA. I wonder what's the ratio ng mga na-grant ng oec considering this...
    Exemption from the Ban on Direct Hiring. The following are exempted from the ban on direct hiring:
    2. Professionals and skilled workers with duly executed/authenticated contracts containing terms and conditions over and above the standards set by the POEA. The number of professional and skilled OFWs hired for the first time by the employer shall not exceed five (5). For the purpose of determining the number, workers hired as a group shall be counted as one;
