Get a short extension for a Work Permit for a foreign domestic worker

You can request for a short extension of your helper's Work Permit if you need more time before renewal or cancellation.

You can request for a short extension of your helper's Work Permit for one month if you:

  • Intend to cancel the Work Permit but need your helper to work for a short period beyond the expiry date, e.g. waiting for new helper’s Work Permit to be approved.
  • Cannot renew the Work Permit in time, e.g. if your helper is waiting for a new passport because the current one has expired.

Log in to the FDW eService to request for the extension.

If you don’t intend to keep employing your helper, you must remember to cancel the Work Permit before you send her home.

You should cancel the Work Permit on or before the extended date.
