POEA Branches and Regional Satellite Offices Complete List

Here is the list of POEA branches and Regional Offices in the Philippines. Currently, there are 8 branches in Luzon, 4 regional offices in the Visayas, and 6 Satellite offices in Mindanao.

According to the 2020 survey of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), there is an estimated 1.77 Million Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) around the world. These numbers are growing every day. Probably the reason is that a lot of Filipinos are seeking better job opportunities overseas so they can provide a better future for their families back in the Philippines.

One of the purposes of POEA is to provide assistance and protection to these workers on their various concerns. It conducts pre-employment, pre-deployment orientation seminars, and information campaigns for newly hired overseas workers. The agency also provides legal assistance and repatriation assistance to workers who are a victim of illegal recruitment and mal-treatment from overseas employers.

POEA is the one responsible for monitoring countries that are friendly to migrant workers as they have met at least one of the requirements imposed by the agency. The latter is also responsible for naming the countries that are off-limits to Filipino workers for being none labor-compliant.

There are probably hundreds of land-based recruitment agencies in the Philippines. POEA is continuously looking after them to make sure they are following the rules and regulations implemented by the agency. POEA issues license to those complaint recruitment agencies and penalized those who are not.

For experienced Filipino workers who aspire to become an OFW, you can always visit the POEA satellite offices for your concerns. I have collated all their branches from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao in this post to help you determine which office is nearest to your location. The reason is that visiting the main office in Manila can be difficult for those coming from Visayas and Mindanao.
