Do I have to pay for my FDW's passport renewal?

You and your foreign domestic worker (FDW) should mutually agree on who should pay for her passport renewal. This should be decided preferably at the start of her employment and stated in the employment contract.

Passport renewal fees can be relatively costly for an FDW. While you are not required to pay for your FDW’s passport renewal, you could consider helping with the cost out of goodwill.
