Why do I need to buy a Philippines Embassy Bond


This performance bond is required if your Foreign Domestic Worker plans to go back for home leave in the Philippines or if your Foreign Domestic Worker needs to renew her passport.

For direct employers and non-accredited maid agencies, it is compulsory to provide a $7,000 performance bond to the Philippines Embassy.

The start date of cover for the Philippines Embassy Bond is the date that you have listed in your online application (e.g 1 Jan 2019). The bond will only be issued on the same date of the application (e.g. 1 Jan 2019) as the system will start the cover on the date of processing the issuance itself. If you wish to receive the policy earlier, please input an earlier start date.
