491 SKILLED WORK REGIONAL VISA AND POEA REQUIREMENTS FOR DIRECT HIRE

Hello!

491 visa holder here and a direct hire. I have a flight for the end of the month from Manila to Melbourne.

My question is required ba ako kumuha ng OEC sa POEA for border immigration sa airport? Kasi when I visited POEA, nalito sila kasi hindi pa sila nakapag process ng mga 491 visas with the same situation as mine (usually mga 457 daw yung pinoprocess nila). The agency had to clarify with their admin regarding my case. The officers advised naman that I can go through border immigration without the OEC as long as di ko nalang daw i-declare na may employer ako.

Sana may maka tulong at maka share ng experience nila (especially sa mga 491 visa holders like myself). Thanks!

    You are not considered OFW so no requirements needed from POEA to travel out of the country.No CFO sticker needed either. Goodluck.

    Thank you po for answering promptly. 491 din po visa nyo? Ganito din po experience nyo?

    Nag aalala lang ako kasi nung pumunta ako sa bureau of immigration to inquire sabi nila since “skilled” at hindi PR yung visa ko, need ko raw kumuha ng OEC sa POEA or else di ako makakalusot sa airport.

    Yes, 489 ako...yan yong old equiv ng 491...it just happened na may employer ka na ..you are a skilled migrant not a contract worker kaya di kailangan ng OEC..you dont need CFO kasi di pa PR yang visa mo. In case confused ang immi, explain mo na lang...di kasi sila familiar sa lahat ng mga Au visas.

    Thank you po. So bale sa border immigration i-dedeclare ko na may employer ako pero di ko na need kumuha ng OEC kahit skilled migrant ako, tama po ba?

    You are not required to have an employer for that visa to come here. It just happened nakahanap ka before coming. Its not the business of immigration to scrutinise you on your employment. Remember, hindi ka contract worker kaya hindi ka covered ng OEC requirements.
