What happens if I fail to update the address of my foreign worker?

If you do not update the address, you may be prosecuted under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act. MOM may also revoke the Work Permits of the existing workers and take this breach into consideration in assessing future Work Permit applications or renewals.

Employers are required to update a foreign worker's address in the Online Foreign Worker Address Service (OFWAS) within 5 days of a change. Failure to do so is a breach of Work Permit conditions.
