  • POEA or Philippine Overseas Employment Administration is situated at the corner of EDSA's southbound lane and Ortigas Avenue. To get there from NAIA-3, you need to get to either MRT-3 or a bus bay along EDSA depending on what mode of transportation you prefer - bus or train.

    First ride from NAIA-3

    Ride a NAIA Shuttle Bus at the Bus Station which is located in front of Arrival Exit. After you exit the NAIA-3 building via Arrival Exit, walk across the access road. Go to the area under the 'NAIA Bus Station Route 2' sign and wait for a bus to arrive. Get in the bus and wait for a conductor to collect payment of 20 pesos.

    There are three major locations where passengers can get off the shuttle bus - Unloading Area near Redemptorist Church in Baclaran, Heritage Hotel which is located at the corner of EDSA and Roxas Boulevard, and the Bus Station inside Genesis Bus Terminal which is next to MRT and LRT Train Stations at Pasay Taft Rotonda.

    Second ride from EDSA or Pasay Rotonda

    By Train

    If you prefer the fast travel to POEA, get off the NAIA Shuttle Bus at its station in Pasay Rotonda where MRT-3 Taft Station is also located. Ride a train bound for North Station and alight at Ortigas Station. You need to walk approximately 500 meters distance from Ortigas Station to POEA.

    After you alight from the train at Ortigas Station, turn left from turnstile (exit machine) and go down the station via stair located to the north part of the station. If you turn right from turnstile, the stair will take you to the ground going to SM Mega Mall.

    Walk along EDSA's north bound lane until you reach Robinson's Galleria mall which is located at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue. POEA is located at the opposite corner of EDSA and Ortigas. To get to POEA, use the footbridge that connects Robinson's Galleria and the walkway going to POEA.

    By Bus

    If you prefer the more convenient but slow travel to POEA where you don't need to walk far, get off the NAIA Shuttle Bus at Heritage Hotel.

    The driver will announce the arrival to unloading area in Heritage Hotel. Get off right there and ride a bus with "Ortigas Ilalim POEA" sign. The sign of the bus may not contain POEA but it should display "Ortigas Ilalim". Don't ride a bus with "Ortigas Ibabaw" sign. Only "Ortigas Ilalim" buses stop at POEA. Get off the bus at the unloading area in Robinson's Galleria which is located at the corner of EDSA's northbound lane and Ortigas Avenue. If you choose this option, your travel to POEA is slower because of the traffic in EDSA and the long duration the bus spends in loading areas to pick up more passengers. But its more comfortable as you don't need to walk far. Instead, you will just walk across EDSA via footbridge to get to POEA which is just opposite Robinson's Galleria.

    You can also alight from NAIA Shuttle Bus at Baclaran and take the bus to Ortigas there but it's more convenient at the loading area near Heritage Hotel.
