The Singaporean government has announced a new requirement for maids working in the country to get a weekly rest day.

The new regulation will take effect from 1 January 2013 and apply to all foreign maids whose work permits are renewed or issued after the date.

The move came after a longstanding campaign by activists and governments of the maids' countries.

There are more than 200,000 maids in Singapore, mostly from the Philippines, Indonesia, India and Sri Lanka.
