While domestic workers are now exempt from paying placement fees, recruitment agencies may still exact charges for processing documentation for overseas employment. Fees may be paid for processing the following documents: passport, police clearance, authentication of contract, birth certificate, medical certificates from exams, trade tests (skills assessments), and OWWA membership. Filipino migrants must only pay the actual cost of obtaining the document (i.e. government fees) as indicated in official receipts.
