Can any single person employ an FDW?

If you are a single person, we will assess your eligibility and need to employ a foreign domestic worker (FDW).

To apply, you:

  • Must be 21 years old and above.
  • Cannot be an undischarged bankrupt when making the application.
  • Must be earning a steady source of income, because employing a FDW comes with various costs, including the FDW’s salary, levy, medical insurance and food.
