All About Direct Maid Hire

Postby vlim » Mon Mar 07, 2011 12:52 pm

Hi all,
I am planning to re-employ a maid that used to work for me a few yrs back. I would like to find out how to go about it. Do I still have to go through maid agency to settle for me or otherwise?
Thanks in advance.. :D

How to apply maid to work in Spore ourselve?

Postby almostkiasu » Mon Mar 07, 2011 1:24 pm

Hi, I did it before, last year - applying myself, not through an agent.

You can log on to MOM website for Domestic Helper application and start from there - step by step.

Good luck and Cheers!

I intend to rehire my previous maid if this present one does not want to renew her contract.
I will pay for her airfare, medical checkups, insurance and the necessary that needs to be done for the Singapore side. However, I expect her to pay for her passport.

I only let her pay for all the costs involved - much lesser than the agent's loan. Something like $50 off every month until all costs are covered.

Is it troublesome?
My sis is also considering my maid's sister.

Postby micollh » Tue Apr 26, 2011 4:23 pm

Any idea anyone? my fren intends to bring this indon maid who now in indonesia to Spore to work for her. The maid used to work for her brother in Msia. But i check with maid agency, they said impossible, unless she is put under thir maid training centre and go through the 400 english questions practise, then they can bring her here , and go thru the same, take loan of 6 months salary to maid agency.
