I’ve mentioned not only once on my previous posts that, Overseas Filipino Workers who are coming back home for a short vacation and who wanted to be exempted to terminal fee and taxes need to have an Overseas Employment Certificate or OEC that is quite frankly not easy to get especially if the nearest Philippine Consulate is an hour or two-hour ride away. But, thanks to the government’s initiative in implementing the online application, it has made OFWs’ life, a lot easier.

So, I am having my much awaited vacation in the Philippines in a day to attend my brother’s “big day” and I’m pretty excited. Aside from the usual routine of packing your luggage, buying things to be brought back home for the family, making sure you got everything you need for the next 5 days or so, we OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) have another thing on our plate to do before going back home and that is getting an OEC or the Overseas Employment Certificate. Okay, getting an OEC is necessary not because not having this means we cannot return back to our jobs abroad but because having an OEC makes you exempted from paying terminal fee and travel tax which are not really cheap.
