Best Maid Agency

Where can my helper stay when I am abroad?

During the holiday season, our thoughts often turn to travel. The advantages of having a live-in helper go beyond just household chores, particularly when it comes to assistance during holiday trips. However, this may not always be feasible. As a reputable maid agency in Singapore, we present various suggestions for arrangements you can consider for your helper:

  1. Keep her at home – Provide a list of emergency contacts in case you’re unreachable. Ensure she has an adequate supply of food and essentials. You can also assign her specific tasks to complete by the time you return.

  2. Sync her home leave with your holiday – Arrange necessary embassy requirements, reentry permits, and maid insurance. Employers can request a levy waiver for a minimum of 7 days of overseas leave.

  3. Entrust her to a relative or friend – Obtain approval from the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) at least 7 days prior to departure. Ensure that she won’t be deployed for work by the entrusted relative or friend.

  4. Arrange accommodation at dormitories for female domestic workers – Approval from MOM is necessary before boarding her. Meanwhile, consider sending her for retraining with the agency or enrolling her in courses during this period.

At Jaya Maids, we offer advice to our clients on pre-departure holiday plans, drawing on our expertise in maid services in Singapore. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any queries you may have.
