Dear Ms. Ma. Teresa Fronteras,


Thank you for your request dated Feb 12, 2023 05:17:59 PM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch for proof of arrival on August 2022 at the Mactan International Airport for your travel back to Kuwait.

Ms. Fronteras your concern about securing a stamp of arrival at your passport is not a mandated function of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA)  but the Bureau of Immigration(BI).  

It is suggested you secure the services of the BI at Mactan, Cebu for the sticker or markings of arrival in your passport.  It is further suggested to bring a copy of your airline ticket and boarding pass in August 2022 to facilitate and ease of tracking your arrival.

If you are unhappy with this response to your FOI request, you may ask us to carry out an internal review of the response by writing the OWWA- FOI Decision Makers at email: foi_dm@owwa.gov.ph. Your review request should explain why you are dissatisfied with this response and should be made within FIFTEEN (15) calendar days from the date you received this letter. We will complete the review and tell you the result within THIRTY (30) calendar days from the date we received your review request.

However, if you are still not satisfied with the result of the review, you then have the right to appeal to the Office of the President under Administrative Order No. 22 (s. 2011).

Thank you.
