renewal of work permit

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.

I just recently renewed my maid's contract (Filipino). It's relatively easy perhaps until towards the end (date of the security bond). You first need to get a maid policy in place. I think it is better for her to renew her passport first so that you can have 2 years at a stretch. PM me separately if you are not too clear. Good luck

Some insurance offer more flexibility. I believe those like NTUC Income allows you to extend. This might work in your favor.

Also note that Indonesian passports' expiry are calculated 5 years from the date of application (unlike SG ones, extends 5 years from original date of expiry). No idea re Phil passports, tho. Again, renewing now (cost about $50 or $60?) may work in your favor. You'll need to work out the sums.
