Sending a foreign domestic worker home

When your foreign domestic worker (FDW)'s employment ends, you need to complete certain steps before she departs for her home country.

When a FDW's employment ends, you need to:

  • Resolve all outstanding employment issues (e.g. salary). Give her advance notice of her departure.
  • Make sure she departs within 2 weeks of cancelling her Work Permit.
  • Buy her an air ticket to the international airport nearest to her hometown in her home country.

You must pay all associated costs of sending her home, including the cost of the air ticket and check-in luggage allowance.
