Established in 2013, Faith Maid was started by an Indonesian-born owner who felt deeply for under privileged village girls and ladies in Indonesia and wanted to provide Faith, Hope and work opportunities for them so that they and their families can enjoy a better life.
A natural entrepreneur, Oei seizes business opportunities as they arise. Her next business venture – Faith Maid Agency – fills the demand for foreign domestic workers from Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines in Singapore homes. As a new player in the industry, Oei initially faced a steep learning curve in complying with complex manpower regulations.
Faith Maid has also been part of accredited memberships and received awards such as Singapore Golden Brand Award 2015.

A single mother of a teenage girl, a serial entrepreneur and the founder of several businesses. The key to my journey in juggling these seemingly opposing worlds has been the rich network of contacts I have built up over the years – contacts that support me in my personal and business life.
I share my journey from struggling single mum to successful, globally-connected serial entrepreneur, and how my expanding network increased my net worth.

Yes if you are a:
- Singapore citizen

- Expatriate with valid work pass
When applying for a FDW, Expatriate employers must declare that family members are living with them. Employers do need a valid reason to employ a FDW at their residence. All applications are subject to the approval of the Ministry of Manpower.
Employers are required to pay a FDW monthly levy of $265 (normal) or $60 (concessionary, effective 1st May 2015). Levy charges begin on the fifth day after the FDW arrives in Singapore. This includes the day of arrival.
Levy Payment should be made via GIRO only. The FDW's Work Permit (WP) will be cancelled if the employer fails to maintain a valid GIRO account. Employers can view their levy bills online using the Internet Foreign Worker Levy Billing (iFWLB) System via SingPass.
There are certain criteria which have to be met.
If an employer satisfies the conditions set by MOM, the employer is eligible for low levy for each FDW (maximum for two FDWs for each household).
Child / Grandchild
A household that has a child / grandchild who is a Singapore Citizen below 16 years old may be eligible to apply low levy concession, subject to MOM approval.
A household that has an elderly person (Employer / Spouse / Parent / parent-in-law / grandparent / gandparent-in-law) who is a Singapore Citizen aged 65 years old or abovemay be eligible to apply low levy concession, subject to MOM approval.

For Indonesian FDWs, their monthly salary basically ranges from S$450 to S$600 depending on their working experience and capabilities and also depending of the employer job order.
For Filipino FDWs, their monthly salary is approximately S$500 depending on their working experience and capabilities.
Our FDWs are personally interviewed by our staff and they have to go through various stringent screenings in order to be selected for employment in Singapore.
The FDWs are first recruited by our provincial recruiters and then transported to our Indonesian Centres. Only those applicants who are considered suitable by the standards set by the Ministry of Manpower in Singapore (MOM) will be shortlisted for the first round.
Essentially, only the good candidates are offered a job in Singapore.
Usually the FDW is already familiar with our Agency before finishing their existing contract in Singapore / Malaysia / Taiwan / Hong Kong / Saudi Arabia. As we have a mobile phone shop in the same building together with our agency, FDWs usually stop by at our shop to ask about our Agency Services before they go back Indonesia.
There are 2 types of transfer FDWs.
- FDWs placed by Faith Maid who are being transferred back to our Agency for various reasons
- FDWs currently working in Singapore who want to transfer and the Employer / FDW chooses to process their transfer through our Agency
Faith Maid understands that employers usually need the replacement of FDW immediately after their existing FDW has been transferred. As such, we do our very best to make necessary arrangements.
Yes. At Faith Maid, we do offer 3-way calling via telephone to Indonesia so that you can interview the FDW of your choice. This helps to facilitate your selection. Due to the accessibility of some remote centres, prior notice is required for the arrangement of such interviews.
Unavoidably there may be some qualified FDWs who may not match employers' expectations. This may be due to personality or compatibility reasons. Faith Maid provides After Placement Follow-Up Service and counselling to these FDWs. We also provide advice to Employers.
During our Follow-Up Service, we will evaluate and if needed, the existing FDW will be transferred and a FDW replacement arranged as soon as possible.
After the FDW starts work, Faith Maid provides a follow-up call service once every 2 months. In addition to this, we also provide support service via SMS / Text from 9.00am – 10.00pm to solve Employers' problems.
We offer several service packages comprising of different FDW replacement entitlements and fees. If necessary, this service package for Employers can be customised.
At Faith Maid, we distinguish ourselves from other FDW agencies with the following achievements:
- Accredited by the Indonesian Embassy
- Member of AEA Singapore
- Singapore Golden Brand Award 2015
- Top 100 Singapore Excellence Award 2015
- CEO in Heels
We accept cash and cheque payment for fees. Please speak to our Customer Service Officers should you require other modes of payment. Our priority is to provide convenience to our customers.
Faith Maid has a refund policy. We have a refund policy on the balance of the advance payment in the event if the FDW is returned and successfully transferred to a new Employer. This policy is conditional upon the employers not breaching any of the clauses stated in the service agreement between the Employer and the Agency.
