CHANGES IN THE HOUSING REQUIREMENTS FOR WORK PERMIT HOLDERS

The Philippine Embassy informs Filipinos working in Singapore of the following housing requirements for work permit holders:

  • Foreign workers who have transferred to a new residence during their period of employment should inform their respective employers immediately, of the change in residential address;
  • For foreign workers who are residing in HDB flats, all employers are required to make sure that the workers are registered as subtenants in HDB’s subletting system and are staying in the flats before the addresses are registered in the Online Foreign Worker Address Service.

All Filipinos working in Singapore are advised to fully comply with the above requirements to avoid the cancellation of their work permits.
