How long does the transfer and paperwork process take for the work permit to be successfully issued?

For transfer helpers, the work permit processing can typically be completed within a week. For helpers from abroad, this depends where they are from.

The time taken for the work permit to be processed and issued is based on the type of hiring and based on MOM’s decision timeline.

Typically, the processing for a transfer helper is completed within 1 week, a helper from Myanmar within 10 working days, a helper from Indonesia within 4 weeks, a helper from the Philippines within 5 weeks and a helper from abroad (countries besides Myanmar, Indonesia and Philippines) within 10 working days.
