The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration or more commonly referred to as OWWA is considered as the national government’s primary agency in helping out millions of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) worldwide.
Eventually, the agency had been put under the supervision of Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) which has set the mandates of the agency in order to fully uphold the interest and welfare of OFWs while they work outside the country.
Moreover, OWWA also provides many loan programs in order to back up those OFWs who intend to start up their own businesses in the Philippines. Through these loan programs, OFWs may opt to stay with their families and friends while they earn money monthly.
OWWA is also a membership institution

Interested OFW applicants may check out the OWWA’s official website for further information about the agency’s long history as well as its benefits and services programs. They may also visit any of the satellite and regional offices across the archipelago in which their queries will be directly answered by designated OWWA personnel.
In addition, OFW applicants may submit their application forms along with the set requirements to any branch of Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) and the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP). These banking institutions also back up some of OWWA’s projects so as to cater more OFWs.
