POEA issues advisory on travel exit clearances

Expecting the surge of returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) this Christmas, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has issued an advisory to prevent congestion in its Balik-Manggagawa Processing Division for those applying for travel exit clearances or OECs.

From the usual 1,000 applicants per day, the number usually doubles during the Christmas peak season, the POEA said, resulting to problems of congestion and security at the POEA headquarters in Ortigas, Mandaluyong City.

“Complicating this situation is the number of OFW applicants who have immediate flights,” POEA said.

Thus, the agency advised returning OFWs to observe the following procedures in order to pace, declog, or deload the processing of OECs:

1. OFWs who have just arrived are encouraged to apply for their OECs early either at the POEA Main Office or at the nearest POEA Regional Offices and Extension Units, or avail themselves of the OEC delivery service to avoid last minute problems prior to their return flights.

2. Departing OFWs who will return during the Christmas season are encouraged to apply for their OECs at the Philippine Overseas Labor Offices (POLOs) in their host countries prior to returning to the Philippines. Or, apply for OECs at the POEA Main or Regional Offices early prior to their return flights to their host countries.

3. Regular processing of OECs has been discontinued at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Labor Assistance Center (LAC) except for weekends or emergency exit within five days from entry. OFWs must apply for their OECs with the POEA Main or Regional Offices prior to their return flights.

4. OFWs who have not yet registered with the POEA are advised to bring their contract and or certificate of employment, and other proofs of employment in order to be documented and be issued an OEC.

Sorsogon State College sets 4-year policy directions

SSC sets 4-year policy directions

Sorsogon City (2 December) — Looking forward for the next four years as Sorsogon State College (SSC) president, Dr. Antonio E. Fuentes has laid down the directional policies he will pursue in his term commencing Tuesday (November 24) this year.

Fuentes averred that his proposed policies will feature among others the strengthening of faculty development guidelines for fellowship and faculty exchange program, search for outstanding faculty and employee of the year award system, acquisition of at least 10 hectares additional site for the Sorsogon campus, design of incentive package for faculty extensionists, and simplification of procurement process.

“My administration also looks forward to seeing the revision of Omnibus Rules in Rentals and of the SSC Code,” he said.

Still according to Fuentes, he will also further stress quality and specialization as he takes into account the recent years’ exponential growth in the number of scholars and research incentives in school.

“The growing number of board passers realized during his term is seen as an indication of the high morale by both students and teachers,” he added.

These new policy directions were proposed side by side with the directives by the SSC president to the school officials as per Memorandum No. 49, series of 2009 to submit monthly accomplishment updates and all fund balances in order to keep track of and get a holistic view of the school’s trajectory.

The President has also expressed his vision of further incentivizing student winners in contests through a package. This is in recognition of the significant students’ contribution to the institution as shown during accreditation and in the past years. (SSC/PIA Sorsogon)
