He said that this initiative pays tribute to their dedication and serves as reaffirmation of the government’s commitment to their well-being even when they are away from home.

With DMW Mobile App, OFWs now have access to verification services for their contracts right at their fingertips along with other services such as applying for an OFW Pass. President Marcos shared that this is just one example out of many initiatives that strive to expand the reach of DMW services into other countries as well as digitalize other OFW services through modern technology. He added that these developments help in effectively delivering public service to them no matter where they are located.

The President also urged various stakeholders such as government agencies and private firms to join forces in pooling their resources and expertise in order to ensure effective implementation and improvement of DMW Mobile App as well as other similar projects that benefit our beloved migrant workers who work hard for themselves, families and communities back home despite being away from familiar comfort zones.

Acknowledging Our Migrant Workers: A Tribute To Their Dedication

Not only is digitalization a critical step forward but it also serves as a way to acknowledge our migrant workers so far away from home making huge strides for our nation while enduring hardships at times.. President Marcos expressed his heartfelt gratitude toward these brave individuals who deserve all the support, empowerment and opportunities available in order for them to achieve success abroad while helping fuel aspirations back home in The Philippines.

In conclusion, with initiatives such as launching DMW Mobile App not only do we show how much we care about our overseas Filipino workers but we also provide them with convenience at their fingertips which can make a big difference in how easily they access public services away from home. Furthermore, it reflects how our country values hard work done by its people both abroad or domestically; making sure everyone has equal opportunity regardless location or circumstance.

A Commitment to Welfare and Protection

The introduction of the DMW Mobile App reflects the government’s unwavering commitment to the welfare and protection of OFWs. By leveraging technology, the government is providing OFWs with better access to services, thereby directly contributing to their well-being.

In the 2022 State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Marcos emphasized the need for automating contract verification and issuing Overseas Employment Certificates (OECs) via smartphones. The launch of the DMW Mobile App is a significant step towards realizing this vision.

In conclusion, the launch of the DMW Mobile App marks a significant milestone in the government’s digitalization journey. It not only simplifies the processes for OFWs but also showcases the government’s commitment to leveraging technology for the betterment of its citizens. As we move forward, we can expect more such initiatives that put the welfare of OFWs at the forefront.


The DMW Mobile App is much more than a tool; it’s a game-changer in the world of overseas employment. Through this app, OFWs can now easily access crucial services such as contract verification. The app also includes provisions for applying for the OFW Pass, a necessary document for all OFWs. By digitizing these processes, the government has significantly reduced the bureaucratic hurdles that OFWs often face, making their lives considerably easier.

The launch of the DMW Mobile App is just the beginning. The government plans to expand the reach of the DMW and digitalize more OFW services. This expansion aims to bring more convenience to OFWs, wherever they may be. By doing so, the government is not only enhancing the efficiency of its services but also ensuring that they are accessible to everyone.Summary
