Domestic Helpers

Most expatriate families in Hong Kong employ a live-in or part-time domestic helper. The duties for a live-in helper over a six-day week include cleaning, washing, ironing, cooking or help with cooking and help with children.

Since you and your family will have close contact with your domestic helper, it is a good idea to have she checked medically. Tuberculosis, hepatitis B and intestinal parasites are common contagious ailments in Asia.

In recent years, Filipino, Thai, Indonesian and Sri Lankan maids have become very popular among both Chinese and expatriate families. They are employed in Hong Kong on two-year contracts and employers are expected to pay the round-trip air fare from the home country, passport and visa fees, food, housing, and medical expenses. A health insurance policy paid by employers is required by law. The Immigration Department issues all necessary documents. Currently, the minimum wage for a domestic helper is HK$4,010 per month.

In theory, domestic helpers are not supposed to work part-time in a second household, although many do - they advertise on notice boards at supermarkets and clubs.
