OFWs Returning Home
Butz Bartolome shares business advice.

I am an Overseas Filipino Worker or OFW. How do I prepare when I want to return to the Philippines?

Returning to the Philippines after working overseas as an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) can be a big adjustment. Here are a few steps you can take to prepare for your return:

1 Secure your housing. Make sure you have a place to live before you return to the Philippines. You can either purchase or rent a property or find temporary accommodation.

2 Review your finances. Assess your financial situation and plan for your future expenses. Make sure you have enough savings for your immediate needs and any long-term financial goals.

3 Update your government documents. Make sure your passport, NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) clearance, and other government-issued documents are up-to-date.

4 Prepare for culture shock. Returning to the Philippines after living abroad can be a big adjustment. Research the culture, customs, and current events in the Philippines to prepare yourself.

5 Network. Reach out to friends and family in the Philippines to reconnect and rebuild your social network. Join OFW groups, clubs, or organizations in your area.

6 Look into job opportunities. Research job opportunities in the Philippines and update your resume. Consider taking a course or training to update your skills or to learn new skills that would be in demand in the Philippines.

7 Be realistic about your expectations: Returning to the Philippines may not be as easy as you think, and adjusting to the new environment may take some time. Be open-minded and prepared to make the necessary adjustments.

Remember, returning to the Philippines is an opportunity to start a new chapter in your life. With proper planning and preparation, you can make a smooth transition and enjoy the next stage of your life.
