When a DP is cancelled

Postby missis » Sun, 16 Jan 2011 9:25 pm

I'm expecting my DP to be cancelled at the end of the month but will be staying on for two weeks on a temporary pass. I have a maid - will her FDW pass be cancelled straight away or can she also stay on until we leave?

you need to cancel hers and get a SVP for her - by the way, many moon ago, when I was fired, and had to cancel my maid's permit she threw a lot of trantrum quoting the MOM law that says you need to give her 30 day notice etc. etc.

Just take note of that .. :D :D

Thanks! Just for the record she will join us in our new country :D
I just wanted to be sure she had some time here (not working) to pack up, see family etc etc. She will stay with her aunt during this time.

Well, SVP is for 7 days to 14 days, upon cancellation : and during cancellation, do it yourself, and request the MOM officer to issue a 14 day SVP - or they tend to chop the 7 day stamp. Since she is going to 'follow' you - it should be fine ..

Good luck :)

I finally got through to Manpower and was told that the maid has up to one month to stay once my DP is cancelled. But if I leave within that month I have to cancel her work permit before I go - and then she has to leave straight away.

There you go - nothing like hearing from the horse's mouth :D

Well, yah, you got to repatriate her before you leave - that's the law ..

Yeah, re the horse's mouth - I was just having difficulty getting through during the week and just really wanted to know! Thanks for your advice though.
