Renewing Maid’s Work Permit – Step 2 Health Screening

I did not blog at all during the school holidays so this part of my post has been delayed even though I have completed the whole process and renewed my maid’s work permit for another year.

This post is continued from the post Renewing Maid’s Work Permit – Step 1 FOMEMA

This step is really easy. After you have registered your maid for the mandatory health screening at FOMEMA, the next thing you have to do is take your maid to the clinic for a health screening.  There is nothing to this. It is just taking your maid to the clinic you have selected on the FOMEMA form for a medical check-up.

Previously, even though we paid our agent to handle the work permit renewal process, they still required us to do this ourselves. So there is no difference. Or shall I say, there is a big difference. We saved a lot of money doing it ourselves.

Do note that we selected a clinic with an X-Ray facility so that we did not have to do twice the work of running around. Everything can be done at one place.  You cannot select the X-ray center as each clinic has a preassgined X-ray center but you can certainly choose a clinic with X-ray facilities.

We merely gave the clinic the forms given to us by FOMEMA, and they did the rest. No payment is required here since we have paid for this when we registered at FOMEMA. It took us less than an hour to finish the blood and urine tests and X-ray. It could have been less if the clinic had less people but we went on a weekend morning. You can go during a weekday morning to save time.

Finally, 10 working days after the doctor examination, we were able to check our maid’s health status at FOMEMA-Result Online.

  2. Berapa lama hari untuk siapkan semuanya. Owner of my agent just passed away and I need to renew my maid’s permit before 17 Dec 2010. Need your advice.
    Thank you very much!

    Ida, First you need to renew passport if passport expiring before the renewal period over. – 1 hari to renew passport at embassy. Then, you need to do health screening – 1 hari to put in the form at fomema, 1 hari to bring maid to clinic, then wait 2 weeks for results. Finally, you have to do work permit at Immigration – 1 hari at Immigration. Altogether, around 3-4 weeks so you have enough time to do yourself but do it soon just in case. Hope that helps. All the best. :)

  3. The majority in the pain from rhinoplasty is caused with the nasal packing that is certainly placed to regulate bleeding.

    Still other men are thinking about male rhinoplasty simply because
    they wish to affect the shape of their nostrils or affect the contours of their noses’ tips.
    Our cosmetic surgeons are talented, experienced, and innovative.
