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 after cancelling her Work Permit.
  • Buy her an air ticket to the international airport in her home country, nearest to her hometown.

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