The Pinoy OFW

OWWA

Updated List of OWWA Offices Abroad

OWWA is a membership agency attached to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). It was primarily created with a mandate to protect the rights and welfare of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their dependents. Needless to say, the OWWA offices abroad were set up to help the agency carry out its mandate and reach as many of its members as possible.

If you are an OFW and you want to know the location of the OWWA offices while abroad, please see the details we’ve listed below. You may need to renew your OWWA membership or apply for the programs and services by OWWA. Whatever is your agenda in visiting the international office, you may head and contact them directly. Take note that the usual locations of these OWWA international offices are also the locations of the Philippine Embassy in that specific country, or the Philippine Consulate General office as well.

For more information on OWWA membership and requirements, read this article on Understanding OWWA Membership and Benefits.

OWWA Branches

With the exponential growth in the number of Filipino migrant workers, OWWA has expanded its reach and set up offices in and out of the country to ensure that it can carry out its education and assistance programs for both the OFWs and their families to its maximum potential. Naturally, having more branches also means that the services are carried out in a timely and efficient manner, regardless of which country the OWWA member is in.

For a complete guide on how to maximize such benefits, visit How to Maximize your OWWA Membership as an OFW.

To date, OWWA has set up over 30 branches in 25 different countries in Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and America, in addition to the regional offices in the Philipines and online services extended via their official website.
