Here's a quick voter registration guide for OFWs in Singapore for the upcoming Philippine elections in 2022.
Did you know that Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) can still participate in the 2022 Philippine elections? Especially now because of Covid-19, it is not ideal for us to go back home just to vote. So as responsible citizens, if you haven’t yet, it is highly recommended to register yourself now. Not sure where to start? Read on to know the very easy steps.
Choose date of registration
Fill out this Google form (updated weekly) to choose your preferred date of registration. Your appointment confirmation that contains the time frame you should be at The Philippine Embassy in Singapore will be sent to the e-mail you provided. Only those who are scheduled for the day will be accommodated.
Note: If you are serving your Stay-Home-Notice (SHN), please choose a date after your SHN period. Non-compliance to your SHN is punishable under Singapore Law.
Documents to bring
- A printout of the confirmation email
- Photocopy of valid Philippine passport
- For seafarers: a copy of the seaman’s book
- For dual citizens: the original or certified true copy of the Order of Approval or Oath of Allegiance issued by the Philippine Embassy in Singapore or proof of Philippine citizenship from the Bureau of Immigration
- For changing of name from maiden name to married name: original and photocopy of marriage contract
The application process
When you arrive at the Embassy, you can go directly to the booth for the Overseas Voters Registration that is located at the very end. Fill out the application form, and wait for your turn. When I went there, only 3 people were in front of the line, but it was really fast as the whole process takes around 5-10 minutes only. After submitting the form and photocopy of your passport, the processor will encode your details, take your fingerprints and snap a photo of you. Overseas Voters Registration is FREE, and is until 30 September 2021 here in Singapore.
