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!
