Advisory for the EPS-TOPIK Registration

POEA has issued an erratum on the EPS-TOPIK 2017 that was issued earlier. Here are the things to remember.


Check that your passport’s expiration is January 2018 or beyond. If your passport will expire earlier than this date, you may be disqualified.

Register first with the POEA E-Registration System. This is free but is a requirement for everyone wishing to work abroad.

Then you may register to the EPS TOPIK registration at this website EPS TOPIK REGISTRATION

These are the dates for registration for the EPS-TOPIK (different from POEA E-Registration):

January 31: MEN ONLY
February 1: MEN ONLY
February 2: MEN ONLY
February 3: MEN AND WOMEN

Registration is from 8am to 5pm. (Previously announced: 6am to 8pm)

For each registration day, ONLY 7,500 will be allowed to register for a total of 30,000 applicants.


On the day of the registration, make sure to have all these documents:

– passport
– clear scanned copy of passport (first page with your info)
– 2 colored ID picture with blue background (size: 3.5 x 4.5 cm)
– name tax for the ID picture (last name, first name, middle initial, suffix – example: DELA CRUZ, JUAN B. JR.)

It is expected that thousands of EPS aspirants will apply at the same time. In 2016, many experienced difficulty during the registration. Make sure to use a reliable computer and fast internet service.


Payment is thru LANDBANK and Bancnet members ~ ONLINE PAYMENT ONLY. NO OVER THE COUNTER PAYMENT. If you don’t have a Landbank (or Bancnet) account, open an account now! Period of payment is within 24 hours after confirmation.

Make sure to input your payment information once payment is made. DON’T FORGET TO PRINT YOUR TEST PERMIT FROM FEBRUARY 6 TO 10 from 8am to 5pm.

– No physical and medical handicaps that will hamper work efficiency (e.g. slip

c. Invalid picture (unclear, wrong size, wrong color background, no name tag)
