Balik-manggagawa processing soon at Duty Free Phils

Returning Filipino workers may soon have their exit clearance processed while shopping at Duty Free Philippines in Paranaque City.

Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said the POEA is setting up a satellite unit of its Labor Assistance Center at the Duty Free Philippines Corporation’s Balikbayan Plus OFW Center for the convenience of returning workers who may wish to have their overseas employment certificate while at the Duty Free Shop.

The Balikbayan Plus OFW Center is a business area that hosts government agencies and private companies for the documentation of overseas Filipino workers and regular travelers.

Cacdac said the POEA labor assistance unit at the Duty Free Philippines is having a test run until the end of March 2012 and will start regular operations soon after.

POEA and Duty Free Phils. are expected to sign a memorandum of understanding to implement the partnership between the two agencies.

The Center will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during weekdays,
excluding holidays.
