Dubbed as eRegistration Version 2, POEA recently made a soft launch of their newest online platform for overseas workers. It replaces the old (well, not really) e-registration system we’re using.
One of my reader commented on my previous “e-Registration how-to” article about a new tool on their website. I immediately checked it out and verified the information.
At first, I was not able to log in to the old system. A link taking me to their new online platform was shown to which I quickly explored. I will share it with you in a few moments.
In the meantime, here’s an advisory from POEA about the new system they’re implementing. Click on the green link to view it.
Why Create a New One?
As we all experienced, the current system is slow and faulty. And the downtime can be very frustrating too. To address this issue, the ICT Branch of POEA launched this in-house developed version.
The new system allows for faster, more reliable and more efficient processing of OFW registration.
e-Reg System Version 2.0 was in beta test mode for the whole month of October. It officially took off on the second week of November 2019.
All licensed land-based and manning agencies, applicant workers and current overseas workers including seafarers are advised to adopt this new version.
By the end of year 2019, the old version of the eRegistration System was no longer accessible.
The Old E-Reg System
The old website for E-Registration is now offline.
You have to directly go to the version 2 to access your account or create a new one.
Continue reading below to get the whole registration process as well as the new eReg website.
You won’t find any “Forget Password” option so you really don’t have a choice.
If you haven’t got an eRegistration account, you will not be able to create one using the old system. You have to directly use Version 2.
Eregistration Version 2
EXISTING USERS of the old eServices portal need not create a new account nor migrate their profile. All you have to do is follow the new link.
It will take you to the new platform where you can log in to the system. The steps are very simple to follow.
For NEW USERS, you have to create an account first which is also easy to do.
1. New Users, Click On “Register”
Accept the terms and conditions. Fill out the necessary details on the next page according to what appears in your passport.
Make sure you follow all the Reminders or Paalala listed so you won’t have unnecessary troubles while creating your account.
2. Use “Forget Password” for Existing Users
The new website address is https://onlineservices.dmw.gov.ph/OnlineServices/POEAOnline.aspx. Your old password, the one you used in the old system, may not be recognized.
This is actually their Version 3 since they changed again the website for the third time.
If this is the case, use the Forget Password option to re-activate your account.
You need to enter your email address and birth date. Then proceed to Step 3.
2-B. If Step 2 Fails for “Existing Users”
Log in to the Version 2 website using your old Username and Password from Version 1.
A form will appear next prompting you to fill out the details needed. Enter your email address, birthday, first name and last name you have in V1.
Click the submit button and proceed to Step 3.
3. Check Your Email
Whether you use Step 1 or 2, the system will send an email to your registered email address for activation and verification purposes.
It contains your temporary password to which you must change after logging in. If you didn’t receive any email, check your spam folders, junk or archives as it may also go there.
4. Log in and Change Password
Your account is activated or re-activated after receiving the email. The last part of this step is to log in and change your password.
As a security reminder, always create a strong password that you can remember. It should be in alphanumeric format with at least 8 characters.
But you really don’t need to memorize it.
Here’s a tip. Write your password in a notepad. Combine numbers, symbols and letters in upper and lower cases. Create one which is more than 10 characters long.
Save that file and copy-paste them upon logging in.
5. Done and Dashboard
That’s it! You are finished and you’re online ereg profile is ready. Note that your agency may need your eRegistration ID number. It’s seen on the dashboard.
For existing users, all the information you had from the old system is automatically imported here. You can still update it whenever necessary.
However, there are some details that you can’t change. In this case, ask assistance from your manning agencies.
Exploring Your e-Reg Version 2
After following the steps above, you can now log in with your email and password.
There are only 6 tabs that you can explore here- Dashboard, Profile, Education, Experience, Resume and Logout.
On the Dashboard, you can quickly see your e-Registration number. However, your Profile and Passport pictures may be blank.
I succeeded in uploading my pictures without any hassles. Follow the specs and everything will go smoothly.
- Passport Size
- Less than 2MB JPG/ JPEG file
- Image should be clean and clear.
- First Page of Passport.
- Less than 2MB JPG/ JPEG file.
- Image should be clean and clear.
Editing and Adding Details
New users will have to input the remaining information, though not all of them is required. There are also details in which you can not change by yourself.
Your first, middle, last name, suffix (if any), birth date, gender and email address are untouchable. If you have any problems with these, please contact your manning agencies.
You can avoid having such difficulties in the first place. Simply enter the correct info upon creating your account.
I made a separate post on how to fix Eregistation problems. Though that article is intended for the old system, most of its contents are also applicable in Version 2.
Let me know in the comments how your e-Registration V2.0 turned out.
May the winds be in your favor.
Hello,,why that my ID picture on resume did not change but I already attach new ID on the Dashboard
Hi there. Try clearing the cookies and caches of your browser then log in again and upload the image. Make sure to save all your passwords before clearing since it will delete them.

Hello sir. subukan nyong humingi ng format sa POEA regarding sa letter na hinihingi nila.
Hi. Is the e-profile here at the new version considered as your poea certificate? If not, do you know how to get the e-service certificate? My agency told me that you will get it once you register on the new version but I can’t find the certificate with the QR code.
POEA eRegistration does not have any option for a certificate. The only thing that you can print in there is your resume.
Perhaps your agency was referring to the Pre-employment Orientation Seminar that you can find here: https://peos.dmw.gov.ph/
Hello. What if may account ako sa old version pero when I tried to forget password sa new version yung nag-aappear is Account not found? Pero sa email address ko naman merong mga email from poea eservices so meaning may acct talaga ko. Pano po kaya yon?
Subukan mo to.
1. Log in ka sa poea version 2 gamit ang old username and password from ereg version 1.
2. Fill out mo ung details sa form na lalabas. kung ano ang nilagay mo sa version 1, yan din ang ilagay mo sa version 2.
3. Click submit at check mo email account.
4. Kopyahin mo temporary password para makalog-in ka sa v2.
5. Ipprompt ka ng change password. Sundin mo lang.
Good day, paki help pag log in ko po sa new version 2 ng e registration wala po DASHBOARD kasi mag update po ako sa record? salamat attention GIBI
Hello po kindly contact POEA for that matter. Or you can ask assistance from your manning agency po..
hello how can I edit my birth date ? mali po kasi yon eh. paano po. ? hopefully matutulungan niyo po ako]
Hello if hindi nyo po maedit, ask help from your manning agency as they are mandated by POEA to help you with that kind o problem. Pwede rin po kayo tumawag at bumisita sa POEA.
Hi there, what is the difference of poea e-registration account and balik manggagawa account? I have a balik-manggagawa account that I created whilst I was abroad to be able to acquire an OEC in order for me to avoid travel tax. I am now back her in the Philippines to apply in another country. I was told that we must secure an E-reg account which I just created a while ago. Just wondering if I did the right thing of creating an E-reg account despite having balik manggagawa account already. I hope they are not the same.
Hello Rose. Balik-manggagawa account is different from your e-reg account. All Filipinos working abroad shall create an e-registration wherever they plan on working. Meanwhile, only landbased workers who renewed their employment contracts with the same principal are required to create a balik-manggagawa acct. Don’t worry. You just did the right thing on securing an e-reg account.
Good day po sir, hindi na po marecognize ang user name at password ko po.
Try nyo ulit sa ibang araw at oras. Kung wla pa rin, sundin mo to
Hello po. Goodpm. Paano po makakuha ulit ng Eregistration. Paano po yung version 2? I tried it multiple times pero ayaw po. Natapos and na submit ko na po kasi yung modules sa version 1 and my certificate na po ako.Need help po. Salamat
Anong error po lumalabas maam bakit ayaw?
Good day po. Paano po maayos kapag mali yung first name and middle name na nailagay gawa ng pagmamadali. Sana po matulungan niyo ako
