How to directly hire a maid from Myanmar?

Directly hiring Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW)/maid from Myanmar is very straight forward. Unlike Indonesia and Philippines which require exit visa’s that often require the help of a local agent, there is no such requirement for an Indian maid. The helper just needs to meet the basic Singaporean eligibility criteria which are set up by MOM that are 

  1. She should be between 23 to 50 years of age . 
  2. Have a minimum 8 years of formal education with a recognised certificate

Besides this she should also have a valid passport with more than 6 months of validity . 

Steps to hire a Myanmar maid directly

  1. Once the employer has interviewed and signed an agreement with the helper, the employer needs to ask for a copy of the helper’s passport .
  2. Myanmar’s rules prescribe that a maid from Myanmar can only work in Singapore if she earns at least SGD 450 per month.
  3. The employer can then apply for the In Principle Approval or IPA from the Singapore Ministry of Manpower. Once obtained, a (soft) copy of IPA letter can be send to the maid for her to show at immigration.
  4. Employers also need make sure that maid insurance (incl. security bond) has been bought before she enters the country. Learn about what are the best Maid Insurances in Singapore;
