The Department of Labor and Employment has recently announced the use of OFW Assistance Information System (OASIS) for all overseas Filipino workers intending to return to the Philippines during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The tracking system was launched in an effort to facilitate an orderly and smooth repatriation, and assistance to the huge number of returning OFWs.
“All OFWs planning to come home to the Philippines during Covid-19 pandemic are requested to register in the OASIS which may be accessed visa oasis.owwa.gov.ph at least five days before the scheduled repatriation,” a press release dated June 16 read.
By registering on the online platform, OFWs are providing their necessary information to DOLE, POLO, OWWA and POEA that will enable them to respond to OFW concerns and provide appropriate services in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, such as repatriation, testing, quarantine, transportation as well as reintegration and/or re-employment programs.
“The forms should be properly accomplished by the OFWs to make the tracking system work effectively. All information that will be provided through the website shall be used in accordance with the Data Privacy Act of 2012,” it added.
