Do I still need to pay levy even though I have sent my FDW back to the employment agency for transfer to a new employer?

If you’re transfering your helper to a new employer to save on repatriation costs, you will need to continue paying levy until your helper finds a new employer. Levy will be charged even if the helper is not with you, e.g. if you decide to send her back to the employment agency.

The process of finding a new employer may take a few weeks, so you should regularly check with the employment agency on the progress of the transfer.

Once the Work Permit is issued to the new employer, we will cancel the helper’s previous Work Permit and your levy liability will stop.
