After you have found the helper of your choice you apply for a workpass and she needs to get her KTKLN. The KPIS she can get later after she has arrived in Singapore.
KTKLN and KPIS Card
Just like some other Asian countries, Indonesia wants to keep track of its overseas workers and therefore have made it mandatory that certain requirements are met, one of which is obtaining an Overseas Workers Card (KTKLN).
KTKLN is a form of identity card for Indonesian Workers which serves as evidence that the worker has fulfilled the procedures needed to be able to work abroad. It is held out to be a mechanism to protect migrant workers while working abroad, both during work and after completing work contracts and returning to the country.
The card can be applied for at the offices of the National Placement and Protection of Indonesian Workers (BNP2TKI) located in their respective domiciles. The documents required are a passport, an employment contract verified by the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore and the Singapore workpass or IPA (In Principle Approval Letter from MoM).
In 2017 the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore issued its own card in addition: the KPIS. All Indonesian domestic helpers working in Singapore are supposed to have one. It can be applied for after arrival in Singapore at the Indonesian embassy. The helper needs to bring her contract, workpass and passport.
With the IPA in hand the employer can buy the mandatory maid insurance. With the insurance bought (the insurer will inform MoM) and the KTKLN in hand the worker will be eligible to work in Singapore and be allowed entry. So it is time to make the travel arrangements.
Direct hiring a Singapore FDW helper maid from Indonesia is really a breeze.
