The iDOLE ID in the future maybe used as a debit or ATM card and also as a BEEP card that may be used for LRT and MRT. With the use of iDOLE Card, OFWs can also access their government records electronically without the need to go to concerned government offices.

What are the requirements to get my iDole OFW ID?

Couldn’t get enough of this good news? If you’re used to wait for hours and even had the memory of getting cut off in the line, you need not to worry for the Secretary Bello have clarified that for all OFWs registered under DOLE, an application will not be needed. Instead, DOLE themselves will process your ID and have them give it to you.

All of you have to do is bring primary to secondary identification cards for identity confirmations before visiting the nearest regional office in your place or go to the main office of DOLE to get your iDOLE ID.
