GUIDELINES ON THE REGISTRATION OF WORKER-ON-LEAVE / BALIK MANGGAGAWA

1. Who is a Worker-on-leave or Balik-Manggagawa?

A worker-on-leave (WOL) or Balik-Manggagawa (BM) shall refer to an overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) who is on vacation or on leave and is returning to the same employer.

The following are also considered as WOL/BM :

• OFWs who will join / return to the same employer who has transferred to another jobsite;
• OFWs who have partially served their present employer;

2. Who are not qualified to register as WOL/BM?

The following persons are not qualified to register as WOL/BM:

3. What does a WOL/BM need to do before going back to the jobsite?

A WOL/BM needs to register at POEA and secure a POEA travel exit clearance before leaving
the Philippines.

4. What is a POEA travel exit clearance?

b. E-receipt – issued for computerized processing at the POEA Central Office and POEA Regional Offices. It is an integrated receipt for payments of POEA, OWWA, and Philhealth fees.

c. Multiple Travel Exit Clearance(MTEC) The multiple travel exit clearance is a set of two or more clearances issued to a worker-on-leave/Balik manggagawa for use as an exit document within a period of twelve months from date of issuance.

Sa wikang Pilipino ay,

Balik manggawa or balik manggagawang Pilipino ay tumutukoy sa isang manggagawa pabalik ng ibang bansa upang magtrabaho muli sa parehong kompanyang kanyang pinapasukan at pinagsilbihan sa loob ng ilang taon.

Eto ay tumutukoy sa mga manggagawa na kasalukuyang nasa bakasyon at babalik muli sa kanyang kompanya pagkatapos ng binigay na bakasyon.

ung totoo, di ko na-gets ng very very light ang query mo...
sumama ba sya sa london nung magbakasyon ang amo nya at tumakas sya at nakakita ng employer sa london?? or nung magbakasyon ang amo nya sa london, tumakas siya at nakahanap ng employer sa dubai... ang labo kasi,, try to use proper punctuation para mas klaro.
paki-clear so you'll get a better advise hehe.

Anyway, katulad ng sinabi ni dark, BM is pertaining to returning to same employer upon vacation laps, kung iba na ang employer na pupuntahan mo at same country din or other country pa yan,,, you have to undergo another processing of papers. Yun ang alam ko.

Yup! that is correct... kapag bago na 'yung employer (lalo na kung ibang bansa na), hindi na s'ya considered as Balik-Manggagawa dahil sa kinakailangan na ng OFW na magbago ng kanyang data information sa OWWA... kahit sa pag-apply ng exit clearances, kinakailangan nang baguhin 'yung employer at job title (kung ito ay nabago na din) at 'yung bansang pupuntahan (kung ito ay bago na din) - na kailangan din mag-reflect sa i-issue sa 'yong OEC...

But there is another way for that... kung ayaw mo nang magsimulang ulit sa Pilipinas...
