There is no longer a need to obtain a performance bond to allow Indonesian maids to go on home leave. Here is how we found out. The Indonesian maid of one of our clients wanted to go on home leave recently. Our client was under the belief that he had to buy an Indonesian Performance Bond of SGD 6000 in order obtain the documentation to allow her untroubled passage to Indonesia and back as recently mandated by the Indonesian Embassy Singapore. Hence he requested Insurance Market to help him to secure the bond.
A scheme was in place whereby the Indonesian Embassy would accept a bond issued by Singapore based insurer Liberty. Without announcement by insurer nor embassy Liberty, however, appears to have stopped issuing this type of bond. No reason has been provided. After a couple of phone calls to Indonesian Embassy Singapore, Insurance Market was able to establish that there is no longer a need to buy an Indonesian performance bond for a maid that intends to travel home to Indonesia and back to Singapore again.
Our customer was delighted to get resolution on the confusion and with the news that this requirement has been dropped, saving people time, trouble and money. There are more than 120,000 Indonesian maids in Singapore so the aggregated consequence is significant. Earlier Indonesian maid employers have to spend around SGD 80 to buy the Performance bond. Great news not only for employers but also for the Indonesian maids. For more information click on the Embassy of Indonesia in Singapore website. You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Indonesian embassy contact number at (65) 6737 8020.
