If my current FDW's contract is expiring soon, when can I apply for a new FDW?

It can take some time to find a suitable replacement FDW and arrange for her to come to Singapore, so you should aim to apply for a work permit at least one month before the work permit of your current FDW expires.

Upon the approval of your new FDW’s work permit, you only need to cancel your current FDW’s work permit just before you get the new FDW’s work permit issued.
