OEC For Flilipino Domestic Helper

Postby ttlkbs » Tue Mar 18, 2014 4:26 pm

My Filipino domestic helper is going on home leave on 18th Apr till 4th May.
I was trying to make an appointment with the embassy via website in order to get the OEC (exit pass) but the website is so unstable that it always prompted me that the page is not found.
I tried to call the embassy but was engaged all the while.
Sent an email to the email address found in the website but received an automated replied email giving me the same website to make the appointment!
:cry:
Anybody has same experience and managed to resolve? Kindly share and advise how should I proceed.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi there

Sorry, I go directly to my agency to sort these things out for me. Yes, I will just pay a bit more to get rid of the hassle.

we used to go the embassy on Sunday to queue but last year they abolished the practise and changed to e-appointment.
the OEC cost last than $5 and if I do it via the agency, it is really no worth it!

I think there are more things involved than an OEC for exiting and returning otherwise how can agencies justify a $200+ fee for doing all this?

Anyway you should get it settled soon! My maid is going on home leave on 22 March and i applied through a maid agent for exit permit etc in the 2nd week of February. The documents were only issued today!

So you need at least 3-4 weeks to get the documents ready. Suggest you do so asap. Good luck!

Her other travel documents, eg. a valid authenticated employment contract, OWWA, work permit and passport are still valid coz she went home last year in Jan.
So for this time we need only to buy the exit pass.

I used Happy Home at Lucky Plaza to do the documentation for me. They did everything without hassle for me.
