Extension of waiver of foreign worker levies for Migrant Workers and Migrant Domestic Workers during their Stay-Home Notice to December 2021

  1. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will extend the waiver of foreign worker levies for all S Pass and Work Permit holders, including Migrant Domestic Workers (MDW), for the duration of their Stay-Home Notice (SHN), till December 2021. The waiver had earlier been provided for migrant workers and MDWs undergoing SHN from January 2021 to September 2021.
  2. The extension will help employers manage costs associated with border measures and safeguards imposed on migrant workers and MDWs entering Singapore as we gradually reopen our borders. These safeguards, including SHN, are necessary to minimise the risk of COVID-19 importation into the community.
  3. With the extension, employers with workers serving their SHN from January to December 2021 will not be required to pay levies for their workers for the duration of the SHN.
