Where do FDWs come from?

FDWs come mainly from the Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and India - in order of popularity and/or the ease of recruitment and deployment.

In 2004, the Association of Employment Agencies Association (Singapore) tried but failed to persuade the government to designate Cambodia as an approved source of foreign domestic workers.

This initiative was in anticipation of a shortage of foreign domestic workers when the new age and education requirements were due to come into effect in January 2004.
