The POEA has launched the POEA Helpdesk for the OFW to personally file their requests/concerns with regard to their e-Registration accounts

The POEA has launched the POEA Helpdesk for the OFWs to personally file their requests/concerns with regard to their e-Registration accounts.

The POEA HelpDesk is an online platform, where OFWs and recruitment agencies, can request for ICT assistance or technical support by filing an electronic ticket for the users’ concerns.

The HelpDesk was timed for launch to assist Balik-Manggagawa workers to shift from the old BM Online System to the new POPS-BaM. Requests such as updating/editing of personal information can also be done by submitting an e-ticket using the HelpDesk.

  1. All Licensed Recruitment Agencies (LMAs)
    Starting 21 June 2021, the ticketing feature inside the Agency Helpdesk shall be disabled. All tickets shall be filed by the OFW and applicants in the new POEA Helpdesk.
  2. All Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and Applicants
    The new POEA Helpdesk System will be integrated into the Online Services (e-Registration) portal to make the Helpdesk accessible to all. Hence, all OFW needs for assistance and other concerns can be accessed thru the new Helpdesk so that an e-ticket can be generated for the purpose. The new system can track the status of your request.

For immediate assistance to E-registration inquiries, please click this link: and file the concern through the newly-launched helpdesk.

For further assistance, please directly contact the POEA Manpower Registry Division by sending them an email at

Department of Migrant Workers online services updated link for PEOS and E-Registration for aspiring OFW.

“Let technology work for you”, as I have always told my ICeTeam (Information and Communications Technology). The true measure of a successful system should be reflected in improved performance, better efficiency and greater effectiveness and economy. If none of these are present, you have lemon.

Much of the work at the POEA remains highly paper-intensive and requires precious man-hours to physically get it done – A condition that manifest that we have not learned to optimize the use of technology. Daily tasks such as requesting assistance for a password reset requires the accomplishment and filing of an appropriate job request form, and takes another cycle of waiting for it to get approved and acted upon. There is always a better way to do things.

Over the past months since the onset of this CoVid-19 Pandemic, an event that has not happened for the past 100 years or so, has seared into our psyche that we have to do things better-Lesser physical contact, faster transaction completion time, getting the details right at the first instant. The kinds of condition we what in government service and the same kinds of conditions that the virus hates. So, we must adapt; evolve or perish.

One of the solutions that the ICT Branch has been advocating is to increase the engagement of automation. Technology is the key.

After much wrangling and brow-burning, we are pleased to announce the launching of the newest version of our POEA HelpDesk System. This in-house developed online platform was initially intended to provide licensed recruitment agencies a facility by which to request for ICT assistance or tech support by submitting an electronic ticket for their needs, with a description of what the problem is. Today, the system can accept HelpDesk requests from OFWS, anywhere in the world.

Requests such as editing/correction of personal information or employment information can be done online. The POEA HelpDesk assigns each ticket to the business process owner of each concerned ticket, in order to take care of the problem. The system also handles report generation requests, and requests for password reset, replacement of users, and the usual computer troubleshooting.

With this new tool, we are looking forward to handle and address your concerns via tickets more efficiently. And, we are encouraging everyone to provide comments and suggestions on how we can continuously progress towards our goal of enhancing our existing systems/services.

On behalf of POEA Administrator Bernard P. Olalia and Deputy Administrator Jocelyn T. Sanchez, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your unwavering support.

You can expect more projects from the POEA ICeTeam and look forward to a brighter, more efficient, and healthier future.

  28. Jules Edward Valenciano

    Good afternoon Sir/Madam,

    I have been issued OEC via online services. My concern is that my flight back to Thailand is on August 14, 2022 but the validity for exit stated in the OEC document is only up to August 01, 2022. Is it still allowed by the Immigration at the airport? If not, how do I I extend it’s validity?

  29. Josie

    The help desk options are very limited. There are other concerns that I would like the agency to help me with, but it is not found in the select option. There is no option about “NO AVAILABLE SLOTS “. The POEA email addresses also do not work. I sent emails to two different POEA email addresses, regarding my problem but received a reply saying’ the address’ inbox is full and could not receive any more message.’ This is very frustrating to know. I hope this problem will be solved as calling from overseas is expensive and sending emails instead of calling the agency will save us a lot of money.

    Anyway, I have been teaching here in Thailand for 18 years and will go back to Cebu this July 9th. My husband, an OFW, died here and my kids and I are going to Cebu for a week only, as the school only allows this length of time because classes have already started. We are scheduled to fly back on July 17th. I tried making an appointment but all the slots in July are already full. I have successfully made an appointment for August 2nd. I will just go to POEA Cebu City and present my appointment for August.
    I just hope somebody from the agency will assist me on this, somebody will be tasked to cater concerns such as this. Urgent emails need urgent reply. I really hope this message will reach the agency. Thank you very much.

  30. Mona Liza S. Ferrer

    Good day po! Nais ko po sana magpatulong, isa po akong eps klt17 passer at ang concern ko po ay pag renew ng aking roster validity hindi ko po matawagan ang landline at hindi ko rin po alam ang tamang email address para masabi ang aking concern. Sana po matulungan nyo po ako

  34. Marilyn Enaje

    Dear Sir/Madam;

    Greetings in Christ!

    I am Marilyn Enaje, a Filipino, currently working as Head of SEN Program at Tenby International School here in Johor, Malaysia.

    I plan to travel back to Malaysia this week to be with my kids, I am a single mum, unfortunately, I saw that my employee contract on POEA online expired on 31 July 2022. But, my Malaysian work visa will expire in November 2022 as stamped on my passport.

    Can I still enter and exit Manila? I understand how strict our immigration is, but as you can see, I have been working professionally and will not work illegally in Malaysia or in any other country. Also, the HR will soon renew my contract. Please advise.

    Thanking you all in advance.
    Kindest regards,
    Marilyn Enaje
