The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh announced thru its Press Release No. APV-30-2008, that pursuant to POEA Advisory dated 19th March 2008, exit clearances of Overseas Filipino Workers, leaving for work overseas, shall no longer be validated at the Labor Assistance Center (LAC) at the airports. effective March 24, 2008.

Instead, OFWs should present directly copies of the POEA Exit Clearances to the airlines counter, terminal fee counters and the Bureau of Immigration counters. However, LAC shall remain open 24/7 to handle issuance of balik manggagawa overseas employment certificate on one (1) day validity, week-end processing of seafarers for immediate deployment and processing of other documentation requests at the airports.
