“Incomplete reports are deemed by this administration as not as compliant to POEA Memorandum Circular No. 12, Series of 2018, POEA rules set the compliance period and if there is significant event involving OFW, report must be submitted within five days,” Olalia said.

“Noncompliance herewith warrants the institution of appropriate disciplinary actions and imposition of corresponding penalties provided under the rules,” Olalia added.

For OFWs, it is advised to check properly the status of recruitment agency, check their license and if they are registered un POEA. It always advised by the POEA to beware against illegal recruitment.
