How to Hire Filipino Workers for Macau?

Labour Affairs Bureau (DSAL) released data in August 2018 revealing that the number of Filipino blue card holders in Macau increased to 10.6 percent, while the number of foreign domestic workers in the country rose to 8.4 percent, of which 53.1 percent were from the Philippines.

This further proved a research made by Professor Shi Wei of the University of Macau, which she released in a book in June 2018 about migrant workers’ lives and their contributions to the economy of Macau. She said the local society and government needed to start looking at lower skilled foreign workers as not just labour or numbers but as actual people that improved the local economy.

If you are an employer in Macau who agrees with Professor Shi Wei’s statement and wants to hire Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), you may refer to the basic process that our foreign clients follow. Please take note though that this process may vary from country to country. You may reach out to our Recruitment Team for more information and FREE recruitment consultation.

General Recruitment Process

  1. Choose a Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) licensed recruitment agency that will serve as your recruitment partner just like SubNet RTA. We search, recruit, document, process, and deploy highly skilled, professional, and competent workers from the Philippines to any international destination.
  2. Submit the documentary requirements to the nearest *Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) for verification purposes. This process will normally take 5 to 15 working days. Documentary requirements include the following:
    • Recruitment Agreement – An agreement between your company and your chosen recruitment agency stating terms that allow the latter to recruit workers for you.
    • Special Power of Attorney – A document that gives your chosen recruitment agency legal permission to issue employment contracts between your company and the OFWs you are hiring before they leave the Philippines.
    • Master Employment Contract – The master employment contract between your company and the OFWs you are hiring.
    • Manpower Request/Job Order – A formal request from your company to your chosen recruitment agency seeking for specific personnel, their job description, etc.
    • Business License/Commercial Registration (Foreign Principal)
    • Identification of Authorized Representative
    • POEA license
  3. After the verification, submit the requirements to your chosen recruitment agency. If you have chosen SubNet RTA, we will be the one to submit your requirements to the POEA for accreditation, which can last either for a minimum of 7 working days, an average of 15 working days, or a maximum of 30 days.
  4. The recruitment process takes place from the moment we have received your signed Recruitment Agreement. Basically, the entire recruitment selection includes sourcing and pre-screening, interview (phone, Skype, or personal), skill/trade testing, final selection, and signing of letters. This process will take 7 to 20 working days.
