Hello,

I am confused about online website is changed recently and now states that PDOS is requirement and a seminar at CFO Office and to have online reservation at least 5 days before attendance? Does anyone know anything about this requirement or is seminar the same as CFO Guidance and Counseling Seminar needed to take at PRISM? y fiancee needs her CFO stamp and dwe are not sure of the requirements now? thanks to anyone who can clear this up for me? I have website info but not sure of process required to tell fiancee?

PDOS is a totally different thing from the seminar for fiance's of foreign nationals.. you are under the category of Guidance and Counseling Requirements and Schedules for Filipino Spouses and Other Partners of Foreign Nationals... PDOS are for overseas workers...

hope this helps...

hi! i just attended the seminar for those petitions by their SA last friday in their branch in katipunan inside the good shepherd convent. i just filled out forms and listened to the counseling and film showing. then paid, got their certificate and my passport was stamped.
you just need 3 photocopies of your passport, the biographical part and 3 too for your visa part.
pdos is being given by the poea for those who are working abroad.

Hi July,

thanks for helping to clear things up for me. Rafi only needs G&C seminar at Prism and then go to CFO office to register and get passport stamp. This is correct? yes.gif

thanks,
