-

Now that travel restrictions have been gradually lifted, many overseas Filipino workers are planning to go back home.

If you’ve decided to go back or part of the repatriation efforts by the Philippine government, below are the procedures you need to follow as you arrive in Philippine airport.

Step 1

-Arriving OFWs will immediately have swab test at the airport. This is administered by Philippine Red Cross and Philippine Coast Guard.
-While waiting for the swab test results at quarantine facilities, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) will continuously provide accommodation and food assistance.

Step 2

-Swab test results will be released by the Philippine Red Cross.
-Philippine Red Cross submits results to Bureau of Quarantine. This will take approximately 3-5 days. If tested negative, they are allowed to go home. If tested positive, they are endorsed/referred to hospitals.
-If cleared, Bureau of Quarantine issues individual certificates.
-Department of Interior and Local Government coordinates with home Local Government Unit.

Step 3

-Transportation assistance will be provided by the Department of Transportation.
-OWWA will shoulder costs for mercy flights and voyages to Visayas and Mindanao.
