“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”
The OASIS (OFW Assistance Information System) is an online platform designed to help Overseas Filipino Workers receive better service. By registering in OASIS, you’re giving DOLE, POLO, OWWA, and POEA the details they need to respond to your concerns and provide necessary COVID-19 Pandemic support, including repatriation, testing, quarantine, and transportation.
The OWWA’s OASIS form is extremely useful nowadays because it allows you to easily include your information as a Filipino working abroad. It was launched in June 2020, at a time when a large number of OFWs were returning to the Philippines, mostly as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which had caused them to lose their employment abroad.
“An oasis symbolizes hope in a desert of trials,” Secretary Silvestre Bello III of DOLE stated. “The system that we created aims to give our OFWs a ray of hope by ensuring that we provide them efficient and timely assistance to ease their anxieties when returning home in the midst of this Pandemic,” he added.
“Through this system, the government can track the whereabouts of our returning OFWs and provide them prompt assistance and relief upon their return to the country,” Sec. Bello said.
All OFWs intending to return to the Philippines during the COVID-19 Pandemic should register in OASIS and provide all information needed.
