Milan, Italy – To conclude the webinar series of POLO Milan for the month of July, a session entitled “Usapang Digital 2.0: Introduction and Actual Demo of the New Balik-Manggagawa System (POPS-BaM), atbp.” was conducted via Zoom last 31 July 2021 with Mr. Hertz Ventura.

The webinar is very timely as the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration has recently launched the new online processing system for OEC application called the POEA Online Processing System for Balik-Manggagawa or POPS-BaM. Labor Attache Buñag enjoined the participants to listen well as it is an important procedure for those who are vacationing to the Philippines.

Mr. Ventura started with an introduction of the new system and highlighted that the old BM system will no longer be used. This was followed by a step-by-step demonstration on how to register, set an appointment, request for OEC exemption, and request for assistance through the Help Desk. Participants were able to raise their questions regarding the system during the session which were immediately responded to by the resource person.

The webinar has been broadcasted live through the POLO Milan Facebook Page and has been viewed 5,200 times since its publication. The same online session may be viewed anytime through POLO Milan’s social media accounts.
