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

-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.
