NEW Requirements by DOLE The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) publish on 25. September 2019 Advisory No 19-08 with follow of the same tenor:

"As per Instruction by the Secretary of this Department, effective 01. October 2019, applicant foreign national's who will secure Alien Employment Permits (AEP) shall be required personally to file their Application for Issuance of working Permits and shall personally claim their AEP Cards from this Office."

The Trend is towards to needlessly complicated.
