Direct Hire Travel Document Processing to Work in Kuwait

hands-on do-it-yourself adventure on immigration and POEA requirements

I. POEA DIRECT HIRE REQUIREMENTS

Direct or Name hires are Filipino workers who are able to secure an overseas employment opportunity with an employer without the assistance or participation of any agency. They may have been directly contacted by a foreign employer by referral or have directly applied to their company. Although your future employer would take care of your requirements (plane ticket, work visa, etc.), you must still have certain documents processed at POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration).
source: http://www.workabroad.ph/poea_guideline.php

The requirements are the following: (1) passport, (2) work visa or work permit, (3) employment contract verified or authenticated by the Philippine embassy or Philippine consulate in the country of your destination. You are also required to undergo a (4) medical examination by a DOH-accredited clinic or hospital and a (5) pre-departure orientation seminar (PDOS).

Fees and Costs (@1USD=PHP44);
POEA Processing Fee - US$100 or its peso equivalent = PHP4,400
OWWA membership fee - US$25 or its peso equivalent = PHP1,100
OWWA Medicare - Php900.00
TOTAL: PHP6,400 (this does not include other required documents such as medical exam fees, authentication fees, etc)


II. KUWAIT EMBASSY REQUIREMENTS

Kuwait embassy in the philippines is not alllowing any filipino's to process their visa on walk-in basis. Filipino's have to bring all the necessary documents to state of Kuwait via DHL. Requirements are as follows;
1. original and photocopy of passport
2. original and photocopy of work visa from employer or contract or no objection certificate
3. original and photocopy of medical certificate from GAMCA (GCC Approved Medical Centres’ Association)
4. original and photocopy of NBI clearance, authenticated by DFA
5. 1 pc. color 2x2 pic

III. KUWAIT EMPLOYER REQUIREMENTS

This list of requirements are emailed and will also be sent via email as scanned copy. Take note the following (this depends on your employer and job category);
1. education / qualification / experience certifcates (authenticated by DFA and kuwait embassy)
2. marriage certificate (if married) and child birth certificate (if any)
3. clearance certificate from current employer

since i have limited amount of time to furnished everything due my work visa is effective only for 3 months and i just arrived back in the philippines over a month left before the expiry date, i divided this wonderful document journey into different set of posts to be more specific on its content;

  1. I was hired to work in Kuwait but due to personal problem I was not available to pursue so I cancel my application. The problem is the agency was process my papers but not yet signed any contract and plane ticket was not yet issued. My problem is my passport was hold of the agency because they told me I need to fee the processing fee of 15,000.00 not included the visa process. my Ask sir is 15thousand is the processing fee for kuwait? is this amount reasonable to fee in processing fee since I am the one who fee for my Medical. thank you please help me for this... thank you

    1. @Nanie Valles;
      Nung nagwork ako sa KSA, nagbayad din ako ng processing fee pero kinonfirm ko yun dun sa coworker ko na nandun na. Kung wala k p kakilala s new work mo at kung s tingin mo legitimate license ng agency, i guess that amount is reasonable kasi halos same amount din nung s kin. Hope this helps :)

    1. @mitzi; ang hinihintay mo pala is re-issued Kuwait employer contract. Depende sa processing ng employer mo, I think it can reach the 12-Jun (God willing). Please take note that your agency and local Kuwait embassy will expedite the process should your re-issued contract arrived in critical date.

    1. @leemonyo; iche-check ng POEA yung company mo kung marami na ba sila nade-deploy na pinoy dun. Kung marami na at may job order ang position mo, ire-require ng POEA na dumaan ka sa agency via company mo. Kaya pumunta ka na agad sa POEA main at itanong mo 'tong case mo, depende kasi sa company at position applied for ang direct hire, IMHO. Thanks.

Then pag nanduon na transfer daw nila visa ko to 18visa. Possible po ba? Dadaan po ako ng agency, tesda training, owwa pero as HSW. kung ako nmn po ang tatanungin may knowledge nmn po ako sa salon.

    Second question ko, nag submit na ako scan copy ng passort ko last January 23, 2019 for visa processing, hinihingi ko po scan copy ng visa sa messenger pero walang maibigay. Ilang araw po ba ginagawa ang visa? Ilang araw po bago magkaron ng visa?

May history po ng tb 6ys ago pero 2 employers na po nakkapasa lagi ng Medical exam for employment and Annual Medical Exam-Fit to work, may chance po ba na sumabit sa pre-med at GAMCA? What if po sumabit sa Pre-med, issauli po ba nila yung passport and may bbyran pa po ba sa kanila like sa processing ng visa namin or what? Sana po masagot. Maraming salamat po

Cleared naman po Xray results ko. Kinakabahan lang po ako baka kasi makita kahit may clear naman na sya dito sa ibang clinics.

      Delete
    9. Yun naman pala. Dalhin mo ulit lahat yan, para less hassle na rin sa both parties in case we never know. Pero since cleared naman na, wag mo na lang sabihin. Let's wait na lang muna yung x-ray result. Minsan kasi, baka mas matagal mag-analyze ng result kapag may history, ini-ensure lang nila na tama yung conditiion mo based dun sa previous result.

    10. Hi po, wait ko na lang po result baka sa agency na lang po pabasahin may accredited po ata sila magbbasa ng result. Para di na rin po doble gastos. Kasi iba po ata standard ng pulmonologst dito sa pinas sa GAMCCA :) Salamat po ulit ng marami sa pagreply!

    11. Hi po, Sakura here po ulit. Nakapasa naman po ako sa Pre medical ko po sa regarding sa Xray. Problem ko po now is yung clinic po na nrefer, andaming bad reviews nareport na rin po sa Bitag show idk bat nagooperate pa rin po. Kinakabahan lang po ako baka po kasi bumagsak po ako esp sa xray and pabalik balikin po ako sayang yung time and pera. Gusto ko po sana mag ask sa kanila if pwede ako yung maghnap ng accredited clinic or may ibang option po sila na clinic na pwede then sabihin ko yung about bad reviews sa clinic na yon. Sorry po wala po kasi ako pwede makausap/tanungan. Di ko po alam if magwithdraw na lang po ba ako ng application if di pumasa sa medical sa clinic na 'to or mag pa2nd opinion po ako kahit alam naman na di rin ako mkakapasa since may history po ako if makita nila?

    12. Ok lng po sa akin nyo i-share yung ganyang delimma nyo, I feel you, OFW din po ako.
      1st naguguluhan ako, sabi mo pumasa ka re x-ray sa unang part ng sinabi mo tapos later you failed x-ray na.
      2nd, kung tamang duda ka na talaga at kung may extra money ka pa, I suggest lipat ka na lng ng medical clinic. OR magpa-xray ka sa ibang clinic, then observe and compare the results.
      3rd, as long as DOH-accredited ang clinic na yun, ignore the bad reviews. Wala andyan na, napagastos ka na. Andito sa kabila kong post ang latest list ng DOH-accredited clinics...

    13. Hi po, yes po nakapasa po ako sa Pre-Medical pero po ngayon, magffull medical na po ako this month. Kinakabahan lang po ako baka bumagsak po ako sa full medical kahit clear po lahat nung Xray results ko evrytime nagaapply po ako dito sa Pinas, baka po kasi pag nalaman sa clinic na nrefer ng agency na may history ako ibagsak nila ko agad at di na matuloy. Alam naman po ng agency na may history ako sabi po sakin tignan po ung result.
      If inactive and po ba as per Med cert from Doctor, di pa rin po ba yun allowed sa Kuwait?
      Gusto ko po kasi transparent para if ever magawan po ng paraan kung di naman po talaga mkkpasa baka di po para sakin talaga itong pagaabroad.
      Sige po magpaxray na lang po ako sa iba if bumagsak po ako jan sa clinic na nrefer nila baka lang po may himala hehe. Salamat po ng marami sa pagreply.

    14. yung inactive issue sa Kuwait it really depends sa employer mo, as long as the Medical Clinic here in Phils declared you as FIT TO WORK, high probability na your employer will accept you. Minsan kasi yung pagiging transparent nkkasama, as long as ok k nmn na, no need to declare the history. Balitaan mo na nalng ako. Ingat po.

    15. Sige po. Pwede po last question? Sorry po baka makulitan po kayo. Ask ko lang po if okay lang po ba yun may scar then hindi ko na po sabihin yung history ko kahit inactive naman sya as per Med cert? and alam po ng agency ko na may history and okay naman na po sabi ko sa kanila? Okay naman na po kasi talaga. Advice din po kasi ng friend ko (ofw din po) wag na lang po sabihin same po ng advice nyo po. Kaso nagguluhan lang po ako ano pong ieexplain ko bat may scar don baka hanapan ako ng Med cert and maungkat po history baka po sabihin bat di ko sinabi sa kanila. Thank you so much po talaga sa pagreply! Sana po di kayo mkulitan :)

    16. 1st di ako nakukulitan, shoot lang ng mga queries, karangalan ko pong nakakatulong sa fellow OFWs. Yup, same thoughts with your friend. Wag mo na sabihin kung gumaling na. Yun lang, be prepared for the consequence in case lang ha baka alam mo na traceable o bumalik.

    18. Hi po, nakapasa na po ako sa Full Medical. Nagdeclare po ako ng history ko at luckily po Fit to work po ako di na po ako hinanapan ng Medical Cert. For MMR Vaccine na po ako. Question po, may possibility po ba na ma unfit to work ako pagdating po ng Kuwait kahit Fit na po ako dito?

      Sabi po kasi ng Agency snusunod daw po yung Health Standard dito ng Kuwait, then istamp na po ng Kuwait Embassy. May waiver din po pinapirma samin na kami rw magsshoulder pag unfit to work na don from clinic po ito. Cnlarify ko sa Agency sabi for DH lang daw since nammili dw ng employer pagdating don gsto na umuwi. Yun po sabi sakin di ko po sure kung applicable sya sa Skilled workers. Kinakabahan lang po kasi ako since may placement fee ito tapos baka sakin pa ipashoulder yung plane ticket pauwi if mag unfit to work ako don, sayang naman yung pera na binigay ko di ko mabawi sa kanila :( Sana po masagot nyo po, Salamat po!

    19. IMHO, mahigpit ang medical natin dyan sa pinas, the moment you were declared FIT TO WORK is highly unlikely ma-unfit ka pa sa Kuwait though we never know pa din.
      Worst case ha if ever ma-unfit ka sa Kuwait, it will be shouldered by your company, the placement fee will be a problem between your Kuwait Employer at ng agency. Worse case lang yan, wag kang maging nega. Sobrang bihira ang case ng FIT TO WORK na pinauwi dahil na-unfit. Just look forward na lang sa work how to save and earn. Kudos and congrats po ^_^

  47. Hi Mam, I'm so confuse po Pls help me.
    First, I applied last January 13, for Domestic work in kuwait (via local agency here in Philippines. I already done with all docs and meds.. I'm just waiting for my ticket... The problem is I've waited for 2 mos after I've finished my OWWA Seminar.
    Now, what make me confused, I have a friend message me that there is an employer there in Kuwait needs caregiver. Since I have experience in medical fields, and the they offer Ed me good salary, now I tried to withdraw my myself to that first agency. And want to accept the offer to the new employer but direct hired.
    But my agency doesn't want to give back my passport? What should I do?

    1. First, You must force your Domestic work Agency to give you your passport since you can still withdraw your employment and you don't have your work visa yet. Ask them specifically what is the main reason why they refuse to give your passport, try to understand them and have patience. Worst case you can ask assistance of DOLE, POEA or OWWA for if the agency still persist.

    1. rule of thumb po, ang next process is obviously employer HR will contact you if you claimed na nakapasa ka nga ng initial and final interview. It will take longer or sooner than you expected, employer HR lang ang makakapag-decide nyan. Sometimes weeks and months.
