(Press Release) — The Office of Philippine Honorary Consul to the CNMI Glicerio “Eli” Arago said Overseas Filipino Workers or OFWs  returning to the Philippines must follow  government-mandated Covid-19 rules and procedures.

All employers of OFWs on Saipan, Tinian and Rota are also requested to follow the same guidelines  when repatriating their Filipino employees.

OFWs returning to the Philippines are reminded to complete three government online registration forms:

 (1) http://oasis.owwa.gov.ph

Register or update information prior to departure.

(2) https://e-cif.redcross.org.ph

Register as early as three days prior to arrival in the Philippines.

 (3) http://uwianna.owwa.gov.ph

Register to arrange transport to your home province/residence from the hotel quarantine facility. This is also available as a mobile phone application: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uwinatayo&hl=en

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration will conduct Covid-19 test at the airports in the Philippines — Manila, Clark or Cebu.

OWWA will also provide hotel accommodations to OFWs in quarantine while waiting for their test results (five to seven days), including meals and transportation from the airport to the hotel and to their residence.

Families traveling together with at least one overseas Filipino worker  will all be considered OFWs. This means that all related expenses will be covered by OWWA.  Families traveling together with the OFW may stay in one room, maximum of two persons per room.

Honorary Consul Arago said his office will assist employers who are planning the repatriation of their Filipino workers.  

Employers are requested to notify the Philippine honorary consulate at least two weeks in advance when seeking repatriation assistance. Employers should also provide the following information: (a) the names of the Filipino CWs for repatriation; and (b) flight details in order for the Philippine Honorary Consulate to notify ahead of time the Philippine Overseas Labor Office-Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C and OWWA so it can provide assistance at the airport.

The honorary consular office is located at Sun Palace Hotel. Its telephone numbers are 235-0560 extension 115/131 and 233-6293.
