Milan, Italy – To cap off POLO Milan’s webinar series for May 2021, Mr. Hertz Ventura, the resident IT expert of POLO Milan, led the discussion in the webinar entitled, “Usapang Digital: Tutorial for Workers on POLO Milan E-services.” This was conducted online via Zoom last 23 May 2021 and has been streamed live on POLO Milan’s Facebook page.

Labor Attache Buñag noted that the pandemic has expedited the transition to digitalization of the Philippine government, including that of the POLO, underscoring the fact that the POLO’s services are already digital. The webinar is intended to educate the POLO’s clients on how to access and avail of the POLO’s programs and services online from setting appointments online to requesting Overseas Employment Certificates.

Mr. Ventura walked participants through each step of availing POLO Milan e-services through a mobile phone. In particular, he discussed how to secure an OEC, set an appointment, apply/renew OWWA membership through the app, apply for OWWA Aftercare Assistance, and using OASIS.
