FDW Direct Hire

Postby gmo_uk » Sun, 17 Jul 2016 9:10 pm

Hi, we are in the process of trying to get a filipina maid via direct hire and not through an agency.

So, we have interviewed a few candidates and chosen our preferred one. She got her medical done and then we tried to apply online at this website: http://www.mom.gov.sg/eservices/service ... rs-of-fdws

Now we can't move the process forward and the maid is getting a bit impatient. Basically we are getting many error messages when we try to enter her WP number, my FIN and her full name. I've attached two pics with the error messages that we are getting. I tried emailing the MOM but the email bounced back! Does anyone have any advice for this problem? Thanks!

We've just found out that I need to do an Employer Orientation Program, before we are able to hire an FDW in Singapore. I guess nobody knew what I was talking about above as I was trying to the direct hiring process the wrong way, it's a shame nobody wants to share their experience on how hire directly here though...

There may be no one that has done this recently.

We hired someone direct from a posting at our club, but that was 19 years ago.
Things have changed considerably since then.

In another thread I posted a link that detailed the steps. Not my blog though.

It's a shame if you could not search for it.

I can't locate it on Tapatalk.

Yeah, things changed a lot including a arrival test for maids. ..
