Hello PSG members,
I am an existing EP holder which have already tendered resignation and currently serving my one (1) month notice of resignation. I also have my new EP approved with the new company I will be moving in to.
My last day of employment with current company is on May 10, 2013 and I'm planning to take a short vacay to Philippines May 11 - 19. My start date with the new company May 20.
My initial plan is to exit SG with SVP and depart PH as tourist? I'm just unsure whether I'll encounter any problems with this, I worry that I might get offloaded when they check my passport, that I'm previously employed here in SG. What do you guys think?
Thank you in advance for the help.
If the EP is already approved for the new company, then you already have an IPA in which you may already use to register yourself in POEA as an OFW for the new company. Get a copy of the signed contract with the new company and the copy of the IPA, update POEA of the new contract and you will need to pay the OWWA fee, PhilHealth for the current year, Pag-Ibig Contribution, and OEC. Thus you dont really need to depart PH as a tourist, rather you are already considered as an OFW since you have an OEC.
