To all concerned:
The Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Tokyo, Japan is ready to accept (Specified Skilled Workers) SSW documents by 04 December 2019 subject to the process cycle time of 15 working days, similar to TITP.
Please check www.polotokyo.dole.gov.ph for the checklist of documentary requirements and guidelines for those who wish to change their residence status to SSW.
Foreign Recruitment/Placement Agencies have to wait for a separate memorandum circular from the POEA.
Thank you for your patience.
