How to Get UMID Card Fast if You’re an OFW: An Ultimate Guide

OFWs can get a UMID card either when they return to the Philippines or at an SSS foreign office in their host country.

Personal appearance is required so family members in the Philippines won’t be allowed to apply on behalf of an OFW.

Not all overseas SSS branches have a UMID enrollment facility. Here’s the list of SSS offices that accommodate UMID applications abroad:
