Requirements to Travel Abroad for Philippines’ Government Employees

img_1605When I travel abroad, one of the things I have to do is to apply for a Travel Permit or an Authority to Travel Abroad or also know as Travel Order. For government employees like me, I need to have it for the immigration officer to let me go outside of the country.

You may read the Department of Education ORDER here.

A disclaimer: I work as non-teaching personnel at one of the public schools here in Pasay City. The following requirements I’ll list are the ones that we are required to submit, it may be different from other government agencies.

I only know Michelle Obama through what I see on TV and read on the internet. Only after reading her memoir that I learned more things about her.
