    @jazzy06 Here's what I did:

    I prepared the hard copies of the following documents:
    - Verified Employment Contract (if you have the one verified by POLO-Canberra, better to use that one)
    - Copy of passport and Visa Grant
    - Completed OFW Information Sheet (https://dms.philembassy.org.au/index.php/website/download-forms/polo/60-ofw-information-sheet/file)
    - Money Order payable to Philippine Embassy - POLO amounting to AUD 5
    - Self-addressed Express post envelope (for their use in returning the docs and the OEC)

    I sent my documents by post addressed to:

    Atty. Rodolfo M. Sabulao
    Labor Attache II
    Philippine Embassy
    1 Moonah Place, Yarralumla
    ACT 2600, Australia

    It took my OEC about 7 working days from the time I sent it to them by post.

    Hope this helps.

    OEC is not required anymore for OFWs . You can secure OEC exemption number in BM site.

    Get your Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) or Exemption Online.
    How to use this Online System:
    1. For New User, register in the system using your personal email account and click the Sign Me Up button. Open your email account to click the confirmation link.
    2. Log-in as Already Registered user. Enter your last issued OEC number. If no record found, set an Online Appointment.
    3. If record is found, update your Personal Data, Contract Particulars, and Beneficiaries, as needed.
    4. Click Acquire OEC or Exemption for online assessment. Enter flight date and confirm if returning to the same employer and jobsite.
    5. If returning to the same employer and jobsite, the system will display a confirmation message indicating that you are exempted from securing the OEC and payment of processing fee.
    6. If not, you will be redirected to the Appointment Page. Select your preferred POEA office and schedule for processing of OEC and payment.
