OWWA Luxembourg Appointment | Renew Membership MWO Luxembourg Office

Working abroad can be a great challenge for Filipinos, but the fascinating beauty of other countries makes the sacrifice worth it. For instance, the interesting culture and history of Luxembourg attract more Overseas Filipino Workers to work in Western Europe. If you’re an OFW in this tiny country, you need to consider applying for OWWA member account insurance to better enjoy life abroad.

Active OWWA members are entitled to a lot of benefits, programs, services, and assistance during difficult times. In addition, you can also help your loved ones in the Philippines by renewing your account every two years to access education and financial assistance for qualified dependents. So, make sure to prepare all the required documents to process your OWWA renewal in Luxembourg.

Requirements for OWWA in Luxembourg

When applying or renewing your OWWA, there are some important requirements you need to secure. More importantly, you must be actively working abroad to qualify for the renewal or application process. You need to complete all the required documents and have them evaluated before you will be allowed to pay the contribution fee.

OWWA Fees and Payment Process

Based on the current foreign exchange rate, the OWWA fee is equivalent to US$25 converted to euros. To settle the payment, you must submit all the requirements and prove that you are not terminated, canceled, resigned, or due for termination or cancellation. Each paid contribution gives members two years of validity wherein they can claim benefits and programs to improve their living conditions.

Procedure for Getting an OWWA Luxembourg Appointment Online

Luxembourg is under the jurisdiction of MWO Berlin, hence there’s no online appointment system available for OFWs renewing their OWWA status. You need to reach out to the MWO office in Berlin regarding any labor-related concerns. If you’re applying for OWWA membership on-site via the Consular Outreach Mission in Luxembourg, you can inquire from the MWO Berlin or the Philippine Embassy in Belgium.

The consular mission requires booking an appointment so you must contact the Embassy or concerned MWO office to schedule your visit. If you’re taking a vacation in the Philippines, you can process your renewal at the nearest DMW office. However, this also requires booking an appointment to be accommodated. Feel free to contact the Philippine Consulate in Luxembourg if you have questions.

How to Renew OWWA Membership in Luxembourg

The Philippine Embassy in Belgium and Berlin’s official websites and Facebook pages have announced that there are three options for OFWs who want to apply or renew their OWWA. You can send your documentary requirements for your OWWA application or renewal via email. Another way to activate your status is through the Consular Outreach Mission conducted by the Philippine Embassy in Belgium together with MWO Berlin.

If you don’t have enough time, you can choose a more convenient way to renew your account using the OWWA Membership Payment Registration portal. The last option would be the OWWA Mobile App which you can easily download on your mobile device. Depending on the option you choose, the payment process may vary.
