Option 1: Process POEA stuffs
1. Ano pong kelangan ko from the company?
Contract, job offer and meron pa isa doc na ibibigay sayo sa POEA then you need to send that doc sa employer mo for them to endorse with company seal/stamp. (See attached image)
2. Should I ask for a copy of the contract kahit wala pang IPA?
In my case, yung contract was sent of course after ng approval na ng pass. They sent me a scanned copy of the contract pero meron din ako kc dala na job acceptance agreement na signed both ng employer and myself when they confirmed me sa position. I am just not sure if meron ka ganyan.
3. Can I print a copy of the IPA online if ever it's already approved? Or should this be mailed by the company?
Yung IPA hindi sya yung same sa kung san ka nagchecheck ng pass wherein makikita mo lang dun is ang result. MOM will send the IPA directly to the agency or company na nag apply. Again, scanned copy yan and you need to print for submission sa POEA.
NOTE: Ako natapos ko 2 full days processing ng POEA. You need to prepare more or less 10k pesos for the entire processing/fees. Kelangan mo mag take ng medical exam. Meron POEA processing fee and OWWA membership na in USD so basically hindi mo alam magkano exchange rate. Pero sa akin nun basta 5k plus sya. Medical around 2-3k. I can't really remember the exact amount pero around those figures lang. Then I paid for 6 mos na Philhealth and Pag-ibig mga ganun pero I think hindi yan requirement. Meron ka din seminar na they call PDOS (Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar) better check mo na ang sched pra makaattend ka agad and matapos the earliest time possible. Yun lang nakalimutan ko na if pwede mauna yun or kelangan na may na daanan ka muna na ibang process. Of course huwag mo din kalimutan yung passport mo, diploma, TOR. Meron naman nag phopotocopy dun but may pila din so if pwede mag produce kna photocopy ng docs mo. Then meron pa isa naku nakalimutan ko ulit ano na doc un basta pina notarize pa then submit na naman balik sa POEA. Sa tabi ng POEA meron dyan mga law office na nagnonotarize. Sa buiding dyan na una mo makikita is may BDO and convenience store (dko lang alam if iba na ngayon, lol!)
4. What else do I need from PH para maka balik dito ulit sa SG?
Once you are done sa POEA and nakuha mo na OEC mo and cert sa seminar, need mo yan dalin. Basta lahat ng nakuha mo dun mga binayaran mo receipts (OEC), cert, contract, passport, IPA dalin mo lahat kc hahanapin ng IO sa atin kc as OFW na labas mo ng bansa.
Option 2: Balik as Tourist
1. Ilang araw pa dapat bago ako bumalik?
May chances ma offload ka kc technically babalik ka din kaagad upon approval but of course case to case. As what I have mentioned sa previous ko na comment eh iba iba talaga pinagdaanan natin. Meron ako kilala na lumabas ng bansa as tourist. She took the risk, nakalusot (Cebu sya dumaan) BUT nakauwi sya bwan na sya nag stay sa atin kc rejected pass nya and she waited kc inappeal ng employer.
2. Risky ba na bumalik ulit dito knowning na nakatatak na 30 days na ako?
Yes. Although ang worry mo talaga is IO Pinas. Pag nakalusot ka dun wala na issue kc IPA lang enough na sa immig dito SG.
@maryan You mean agency from Pinas or agency dito sa SG? I think may nabasa ako sa isang thread ng discussion dito na prang challenging ata na maghanap agency na nagpapaalis papunta dito SG. I am not sure lang baka pag mga health related eh meron din kc normally yun naman isa sa in demand na jobs abroad. Yung sa sugal na sabi mo, yes it is a risk. The moment you decide na pumunta ka dito risk talaga sya. As for my own experience, I could say na it's all worth it kc on my end nakahanap ako ng work and luckily, happy ako sa work ko and ok talaga boss and mga kasama. PERO may nakasabayan ako who was not able to land a job here. 4 times sya nag exit and yung last is na A to A na sya. Imagine magkano gagastusin mo nun. I think what I can advise you is that, weigh things and pray pra sa magiging decision mo kc it's gonna be a major one.
@LakingDavao In my opinion, if your priority is to really get a legit job here in SG eh wag ka mag settle sa ganyan. Lalo na't hindi nga legal for any establishment/employer to hire a foreign worker na walang pass. Pero I think sa mga major decisions natin you still need to make a choice on your own. Meron ako nakasabay dati na naghahanap ng work, yung sayo nga home based sa kanila they needed to go to the store physically. Magbantay ng shop talaga but for them they took the risk kahit bawal kc paubos na daw pera nila and pandagdag sa gastos daily. They needed to spend for rent, food, fare lalo na pag exit time pa. But if I maysuggest, you better spend your time looking for a job na makapagbibigay sayo ng legit na pass the soonest time possible. Baka masayang lang time and effort mo tapos in the long run wala pa rin sila pass na mabibigay sa June. Anyway good luck and laban lang. God Bless
@Teddy Don't fall into that kind of trap. Madami sila naloloko kc alam nila most are desperate to land a job here in SG most especially yung mga wala pa rin interviews or those na pa expire na SVP. Anyway, I have a friend na nag agency din. She paid prang 60 for registration/interview but after nun wala na any fee na hiningi sa kanya. When she got hired sa sahod na deduct yung payment nya sa agency. Unti unti prang 3 mos nya un ata binayaran. Better yan I guess. Although better pa rin ung direct hire pra wala babayaran, hehe! Good luck and God bless
