Application of Maid Work Permit


Why Does A FDW Need A Work Permit? 

A work permit is generally issued to an unskilled or semi-skilled foreign worker. Its purpose is to grant permission for the workers to work in Singapore for a duration of two years (may vary for special conditions). Work permits will help the Singapore government to identify and manage the foreign workforce. There are quotas for each industry and employers need to pay a monthly levy for each worker to keep their work permit valid.
