If you are aspiring to be an Overseas Filipino worker (OFW) then one of the first things that you must do is to ensure that the agency
you plan to send or have sent an application to is licensed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
A land-based or sea-based agency with an active POEA license means that it is allowed by the Philippine law to recruit Filipino
workers for overseas jobs. Checking the status of a recruitment agency decreases your chance of being a victim of illegal recruitment.
Find out here if you are dealing with a POEA-licensed recruitment agency. Simply enter the name of the agency and click Submit.
Note: The status of recruitment agencies displayed here is based on the record taken from the POEA website. The status of an agency
may range from good standing, cancelled or suspended. The result displayed is valid only on the day it was searched because the status
of an agency may change anytime. Applicants are advised to regularly check this page to be updated with the latest POEA status of an agency.
You can also check the status of a recruitment agency by calling the POEA hotline numbers at 722-1144 and 722-1155.
