Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) - TSS 482 Visa Holder

jspjsp Posts: 30Member

Hello po,

I've been reading a lot dito po sa forum about OEC. So, I'm now stressed. Kung meron po sa inyo na TSS 482 Visa holder na naka big move na sa AU, can you share po your experience. I have an assistance for Visa via immigration law firm, so granted na ung visa. Then, nagbabasa ako here sa forum, need pala po ng OEC bago maka exit sa PH. Parang base sa mga nabasa ko, since direct hire, hindi ako dumaan sa POEA. If hired kasi through agency, ung agency ung nagpprocess ng OEC. So since direct hire nga ako, need ko i-DIY ung OEC. May POLO pa na need yata puntahan or contakin ng employer sa AU to verify my employment, the outcome of which is the Endorsement Letter na need ko naman para on my side here sa Pinas maprocess ko ung OEC with POEA. Na, nakaka hassle sya talaga... Kasi I was advised by the lawyer na magresign na ko once na-grant ung visa. So nung na-grant, nagresign ako agad... then binook na ko ng employer ng flight pa-AU a month after kasi I have to still observe the 30-day notice period. Ang worry ko is, baka angtagal ng processing ng OEC dito sa side ko, tapos baka hindi pa lumabas ung OEC ko eh flight ko na... tapos wala pa ko sahod kasi resigned nako and nakahold ang last pay until clearance is processed. Thank you po sa inyo....

    Good eve. Congrats on gaining a 482 Visa!
    Na discuss mo na ba with the employer regarding the OEC and kailangan nila na magpa verify sa POLO ng mga documents mo? If first time nila maka encounter with that, mas mabuti pa mag usap kayo ng employer mo para maintindihan nila. Coz, tulad ng experience ko, first timers ng company na maka encounter na may na employ sila na Pinoy na humingi ng POLO Verified documents for processing. Kasi sa pagkakaalam nila, once may visa ka na, good to go na. When in fact, kailangan pa ng exit documents dito sa Pilipinas.
    If they are already working on it, good for you. Patience lang konti kasi ang embassy sa Canberra sometimes walang tao (closed ang embassy dahil may nag positive last time I heard), may papasok lang para kumuha sa documents at idrop off sa post office. If you can still extend sa work mo, baka payagan ka. Based sa feedback ng mga tao mas mabuti kung di ka sa main office (NCR) kumuha ng OEC. Punta ka sa Regional offices kasi hindi by appointment ang pag file. Walk in lang ok na.
    Also, inform muna ang employer mo na baka may slight delays sa pag arrive mo dahil may exit requirements kang kailangan. Hopefully maka tulong din yung migration law firm na na-tap mo for your visa.

    @joninho, salamat. Nung ikaw sir, ilang days ang processing mo for OEC? Ininform ko na sila about it, and they are having talks na inside. Parang nag kakausap sila ng lawyers. Pero sabi ng HR contact ko, it will take them some time to collate the documents required na maverify with POLO. Ironically, ung lawyer na agent na nakuha ng company is Pinay, and apparently, wala rin syang idea daw sa OEC... pero nung I started reaching out sa kanya, andami nyang sinabi na hindi nga raw sila naghehelp pagdating OEC. Pero bakit hindi nya sinabi sakin na kailangan ng OEC, e di sana nung tinanggap ko ung offer ng company, I already have informed them na need nga pa ng OEC... nakakahassle.... sayang ung time. I accepted the offer 20 April... I could have mentioned to them na may need na OEC... :((((( Then the visa application was lodged May 3rd.... June 3rd granted na ung visa eh.... and the lawyer, she told me to resign na... oh my goodnes... This is very stressful.... The employer din kasi sa AU they are giving me accommodation for a month and they can't book the accomm kung wala akong flight... so they booked the flight next month na kasi after nga lang ng notice period ko sa current company... and for sure they will be disappointed... the waiting for the visa processing, plus the waiting for me... all costs and accommodation planned.... i am so disheartened... :( Tapos may nag ka covid pa sa Canberra.... oh dear... i kennat.... please any help, can someone enlighten me.... I have already created e-registration sa POEA, uploaded all the docs that I can on my side... ung POLO verified docs na lang talaga ang kulang... but sabi naman is inaasikaso na nila.... i don't know lang kung ano ung term nila na "it will take them sometime".... pero considering na gumastos na sila for all the visa processing, kasi kasama din wife ko... as secondary holder, siguro naman hindi nila ko bibitawan... i will just wait unemployed, is the worst case scenario.... I'm pretty sure that that Pinay agent lawyer has some idea on OEC... pero di nya lang nabanggit... baka nakalimutan.... I was asking her pa nga multiple times, waiting na lang ba ko hanggang ma grant ang visa, anong steps ang need ko on my side, meron pa bang iba... sabi nya "we will just wait until DHA processes the application".... ganon lang sya palagi... the company I'm in right now, ung pinag resign-an ko na, is a very good company.... hayyy, they have na my replacement, nag tuturn over na kami, and I guess, it's too late to retract the resignation.... i'm so ughhh... IIYAK NA LANG AKOOOO..... :(((((((

    If you want to take chance, you can consider going to SG or MY as tourist, then go to AU.
    You have to present return ticket though to PH immigration to make it legit as tourist.

    Ako nga eh. Running 3 months na ako walang trabaho. Can't risk it din kasi baka bigla lang mag sunod2 ang pag usad ng processing ko. So waiting na lang talaga ako.

    Same din ang scenario with my employer. Sabi nila 1st time na may Pinoy, na starting point ay Pinas, na nang hingi ng ganun na mga documents. Kasi sa pag intindi nila kung may visa na, good to go. Pero di nila ma gets na kasi work visa lang ang hawak natin at di Residency, subjected pa rin tayo sa laws ng Pilipinas. Sinabihan pa nga ako na baka "you're something special" kasi kailangan ko nun. Lol

    Mga 2 months din na ganun ang sabi nila. Pero nang nag tanong2x sila sa ibang employers at may nag sabi na ganun talaga process, eh di dun pa sila nag comply.

    Wag ka muna mawalan ng pag-asa. Almost there ka na. May visa na, exit requirements na lang kulang.

    Kumbaga parang akyat sa bundok. Malapit ka na sa tuktok kaya mas mahirap ang akyatan. Pero it will all be worth it.

    @jsp pwede din to, I have a friend direct hire din sya sa NZ nagtourist sya sa SG then dumiretso sya sa NZ after. Alam ko mas mabilis ung ganto compared sa kukuha ka ng exit papers from Philippines.

    @jsp and @Joninho
    Kamusta na po processing ng OEC nyo? Ask ko lang if yung contract nyo is pinadala ng company nyo (courier) to Canberra or pede scanned copies lang?

    @kayemee question po, medyo desperate na po ako makaalis ng pilipinas. Na off load po ako sa flight ko last saturday night, kasi hinanapan po ako ng OEC. Honest mistake po, since wala talaga ako alam about sa OEC, and hindi ko alam na considered na pala ako na OFW.
    Naka TSS 482 visa ako ngayon sa australia po(student before). Nag emergency vacation lang to visit parents na ma-edad na.
    Then nung nasa airport na ako, hinanapan ako ng OEC. And ayun, hindi ako pinalusot sa immigration.
    Nakaka stress sobra na rin, kasi hindi magawa ng employer na sila mismo mag process ng Verified Contract sa POLO Canberra. Then nag hihintay na rin trabaho sa australia.

    Kaya rin po ba kaya na mag SG ako or other country(with return ticket to PH), then book ako sa SG(or other country) naman ng flight ko going to australia? para sa SG na ako mag "exit"

    patulong po sana :(
    maraming salamat po!

    One of the option po yung cross country to bypass yung OEC if you want to take a chance. Pero not sure po ako if makakalusot ka since na-offload ka recently. Baka may keep track sila ng record mo.
