POEA E Registration DMW eReg Online Login Portal

The DMW eRegistration Portal Online, formerly known as the POEA eRegistration online or eReg Portal, is an online registration system offered and managed by the newly launched Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) via the DMW Portal Online. It is essentially an OFW tracking system created by POEA and later renamed to reflect the new department. It is also a database meant to store all information related to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and would-be OFWs who wish to work abroad, including but not limited to overseas job vacancies, OFW application tracking, contract viewing, and Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) application

Signing up at the DMW eRegistration Portal Online is a mandatory requirement for all OFWs—sea-based or land-based—as well as aspiring overseas workers. It is meant to be the 24/7 web-based portal that will make it easier for Filipino migrant workers to register for and avail of the services of the department tasked to serve and protect the Philippines’ Modern-Day Heroes—the OFWs. In this guide, we listed the complete steps for the DMW eRegistration in hopes that it will help you complete the process as painlessly as you possibly can.

What is the DMW Portal Online (formerly POEA eRegistration Portal)

The DMW Portal Online is a  web-based portal meant to make the registration process for overseas employment easier, faster, and more convenient for OFWs and would-be OFWs. It was formerly known as the POEA eRegistration System but was later renamed to reflect the name of the newly created department for OFWs—the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW). 

The DMW Portal was also designed to carry out the goals of the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW)—a new government agency formed from the merger of seven (7) different agencies supporting OFWs, namely:

Sections of the DMW Portal Online

Accessing the DMW Online Portal offers access to these different sections and services:  

DMW eRegistration Portal Online

The first section in the DMW Portal is the DMW eRegistration System. As the name implies, this section offers an online registration system portal for all OFWs—regardless if they are first-time candidates, experienced OFWs, or returning OFWs. Through this portal, DMW makes it easy for OFWs and would-be OFWs to comply with the mandatory requirement to sign up and register on the “Balik Manggagawa” system.

The DMW eRegistration Portal is only one of the many functions of the DMW Portal. It was created as an online alternative to OFW registration in hopes of improving efficiency and reducing the time and effort required in completing the process.

DMW HelpDesk

The DMW Online Portal also offers a DMW HelpDesk section—a one-stop-shop meant to address all system-related difficulties related to the portal. Through the DMW Helpdesk, OFWs may change their registered email address, make corrections to their system information including their name, birthdate, and gender, or connect their old POEA records to the new DMW account records.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I change the email address I registered in my DMW account?

Yes, but not manually. The email address you registered in your DMW account will serve as your “permanent” login so it is encouraged to use an active email address. However, in case you have to, you may request for a change by submitting a ticket via the DMW Helpdesk.

To request for a change in your email address via the DMW Helpdesk, you may follow the procedures listed below:

  • Visit the DMW Online Services Portal.
  • Scroll down to the DMW Helpdesk and click “Create Ticket.”
  • Click “Continue” when you see the welcome greetings that read, “Welcome to Online HelpDesk.” 
  • Choose “Online Services eRegistration.”

But, just in case you really need to update your personal information so it would reflect the correct data, you may follow the same steps as the one for changing the registered email. The only difference is when selecting your concern. You have to choose “Edit Account Problem – Name, Birthday, or Gender” then “I know my eRegistration number and email address.” Once done, key in your eRegistration number and email address then select a Processing Site near you. Do not forget to copy the Ticket Number after submitting the ticket, for when you inquire for updates later on.
