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.

Before you send your FDW home:

  • Ensure that your helper has a valid passport.
  • Buy her an air ticket to the international airport in her home country, nearest to her hometown. Her departure date must be within 2 weeks after cancelling her work permit.
  • Resolve all outstanding employment issues (e.g. salary). Give her advance notice of her departure.

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