Indonesian Embassy in Singapore to Require $6k bond for Indonesian Maids (FDW) from 1 Feb 2018

This is a new requirement from the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore.  It is similar to the $5k bond required by MOM when hiring any maid in Singapore.  Employers can buy a performance bond through an insurer for $70 (excluding GST).  In the event that there is a breach by the employer, the embassy will get the insurer to pay the $6k and the insurer will in turn get the $6k from the employer.
Note though that this bond is not required by the Singapore Government.  Read more about MOM’s advisory to employers of Indonesian FDW at http://www.hungchau.sg/2018/05/09/mom-advisory-to-employers-of-indonesian-fdw-on-indonesian-embassy-new-performance-bond/
