The Ministry of Manpower requires all first-time foreign domestic workers (FDWs) to attend the Settling-In Programme (SIP), conducted in English or in the FDWs' native languages. It aims to better orientate and equip FDWs with basic knowledge about living and working safely in Singapore.

A first-time FDW is one who:

•    Has Work Permit records with MOM but did not collect her Work Permit cards previously. This includes FDWs who have worked in Singapore for brief periods in the past, or who have applied for Work Permits but did not eventually work in Singapore.

Course contents
SIP will be delivered through a combination of lectures, videos and practical sessions and will cover the following five modules:

1. Introduction to Singapore
2. Conditions of employment
3. Safety at home
4. Safety in other areas
