Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) administrator Hans Leo Cacdac recently announced to the public especially to all returning Overseas Filipino Workers about the online registration platform.
This is to assist all OFWs who are in the quarantine facilities and tested negative for COVID-19. He said that it is an online registration procedure.
OWWA ‘UWIAN ‘ Program
The purpose of this website is to expedite the registration process so that all OFWs who have tested negative can return to their respective cities and provinces.
OWWA positively encouraged all OFWs to register at the website: to expedite their transportation arrangements so that they can immediately return with their families back home. This platform will be able to organize them into different batches depending on their respective destinations.
OWWA added that an OFW must have both qualifications: included in the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) list of OFW repatriates with RT-PCR Negative Results and staying in a hotel provided by OWWA. Those who register must fill out the registration form on the website. Once an OFW who registered will receive a confirmation notice through email with guidelines regarding travel arrangement.
OWWA Administrator Cacdac reiterated and said that this initiative is to group OFWs depending on your destination and organize the booking or chartering of flights, and also identify in which hotel they will be fetched.
He gave an assurance that OFWs who registered are in close coordination with the Philippine Red Cross for their test results.
