Jayaprema said they found out that the preparation cost for a DH to work in Singapore is around $1,100.

Included here are charges for pre-employment training, medical examination, passport fees and etc.

As of the moment, there is approximate, 70,000 Filipino domestic helpers in Singapore.



Philippine Embassy labor attache Ramon Pastrana reminded that it is illegal for Filipino domestic workers to be charged with placement fees to work abroad.

"This initiative is not a reason for agencies here to just go charge any salary deduction from the worker," he said.

"The $1,100 is just a cap for the workers, to cover whatever they need in the Philippines. If the workers say they don't need that, then there is no need for the two agencies to have a repayment scheme." (Source: The Straits Times)
