If I am a foreigner bringing in my own MDW, must she attend the Settling-in Programme (SIP)?

If your migrant domestic worker (MDW) is a first-time MDW in Singapore, she is required to attend the SIP.

A first-time MDW is one who:

  • Doesn’t have an employment record with MOM’s Work Pass Division.
  • Has Work Permit records with MOM but did not collect her Work Permit card, or collected the card but did not eventually work in Singapore.
