How to get and pay an OEC online: OEC Online Appointment


OEC Online Appointment – BM Online POEA

If you already have a registered account at the Balik manggagawa Online Processing System, you can get an OEC and print it anytime you want. Each OEC is good for one time use only. You will not need a multiple entry OEC because you can always print an OEC at whenever you need one.

For those who have not yet registered, you need a one time appearance at the embassy or POEA offices in the Philippines. You also need an appointment for an appearance if you have a new employer.

You can only get an OEC online without going to the embassy if you:

  • have already registered previously and have already appeared in the embassy or POEA offices for verification of identity
  • have the same employer in your balik manggagawa account profile.

An OEC or Overseas Exit Clearance is required from OFW’s who are returning back to their employers abroad. If you are staying in the Philippine for good you do not need an OEC.

Here are the Steps if you already have a verified account

Important Notes:

  • If you have already verified your BM Online account at the embassy or any POEA office you can proceed. If not you still need an appointment for an appearance at either the Philippine Embassy or any POEA office.
  • You need to return to the same employer to use the BM online processing system. You need to update your BM online profile and set an appointment for an appearance, if you will have a new employer. You will need to set an appointment for an appearance whenever you change your employer.
  • You need to know the date you will go back abroad or your departure date. This will be asked during the online processing.
  • Your VISA or PASS on your profile has to be valid or is not expired. If your old VISA number and details are still in your profile you need to update it and may need an appearance at the embassy or POEA office.
  • The Online OEC can be processed anywhere. You can process and print your OEC online in the Philippine or abroad.
  • Make sure you have an updated BM online profile and will go back to the same employer if you decide to process your OEC in the Philippine because you will need an appearance at the POEA office if it is not the case. – POEA OEC Online Appointment – BM Online

    Why is it that it is compulsary for ofw to put the amount of their salary on the registration on BMonline? I think salary of ofw is confidential and should not be shown to other people.

  • Ponz

    Hello po,
    Pa bakasyon po ako ngayong 22nd of May 2017 but i can’t print my OEC even though i already applied extension of my passport last 8th of May at Doha, Qatar embassy at the same time I also applied for renewal. However, the bm online system kept on rejecting my OEC application with pop up message saying passport validity should be at least 6 mos.
    This is my 3rd time to go home for vacation and coming back with the same company.
    Appreciate you kind advise and assistance.

    Salamat po ng marami

    The BMOnline System has BUG, The Text Input for Name of Company/Employer under the Contract Particular, is Disabled and Required Field at the same time. so there is now way you can edit your info on the Contract Particular Tab.
