Maid Agency Singapore | New maid or Transfer maid?


When you decide to hire maid in Singapore, you may have heard about a New Maid and a Transfer Maid during your initial research if you are hiring for the first time. Like us at Jayamaids, award winning Maid Agency in Singapore, lots of other agencies also offer both transfer maids and new maids. However, before you decide which maid is better for you, it is essential to know the difference between both.

New maids are helpers from overseas who come in Singapore for work for the first time. These new maids may or may not have experience (in most of the cases they have) in their home country. After getting some experience in Singapore, they are transferred from their current employer to another employer who is referred to as transfer maids.

In a simple meaning, new maids are new to Singapore who may or may not have experience while transfer maids have work experience in their home country as well as in Singapore. Generally, like we do at Jayamaids, Maid Agencies in Singapore provide a complete profile of the maids so that the employer will get clear information regarding the employment history, working pattern of a transfer maid etc.,
