OSSCO Davao to open this week

  • August 08, 2017

DAVAO CITY, Aug. 8 – The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) XI is set to open its One Stop Service Center for OFWs (OSSCO) on Friday, August 11, 2017.

Pursuant to the marching order of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, OSSCO is a government facility that houses frontline services to make them more accessible to Filipinos who are currently working or planning to work overseas.

Aside from shortening the time to process their documents, the one-stop shop is also aimed at reducing the expenses of OFWs since the services of concerned government agencies can already be availed of in just one location.

The operationalization of OSSCO in Davao Region was made possible through the Department’s partnership and generosity of the DSG and Sons, Incorporated headed by its president James Gaisano and the Local Government Unit of Davao City together with the OSSCO assigned frontline agencies.

OSSCO agencies include Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, Department of Foreign Affairs, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, Professional Regulation Commission, Home Development Mutual Fund, Philippine Health lnsurance Corporation, Social Security System, Philippine Statistics Authority, Bureau of Immigration, National Bureau lnvestigation, Commission on Higher Education, Philippine National Police, and Bureau of lnternal Revenue.

The opening ceremony will be graced by DOLE Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III together with heads of the OSSCO Agencies.

A signing of the memorandum of understanding among the agencies will also be held during the event.

OSSCO Davao is located at the 5th floor of Gaisano Mall of Davao, J.P. Laurel Avenue and will operate from Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 7 pm. (DOLE-XI)
