FAQ to find a domestic helper agency
What is a domestic helper agency?
A domestic helper agency is the ‘middleman’ for both the employer and the domestic helper. While domestic helpers can easily find jobs through the agency, employers can find the helper of their choice.
Why using an agency to find your domestic helper?
The agency assists the employers by providing them with a list of helpers who are well screened and qualified. Meetings are also arranged by the helper agency between the employer and the helper, so that it becomes easy for the employers to hire the right candidate who can blend with their family.
What are the responsibilities of a maid agency?
Besides all these, a domestic helper agency checks the immigration and visa papers of the helpers and gets the employment contracts signed by the employer and helper, to avoid any problems later on. The agency will handle the paperwork process with immigration department, Indonesia consulate or Philippines consulate.
