Benefits of Hiring Transfer Maids in Singapore

Experience and Expertise

Transfer maids are highly beneficial due to their valuable prior work experience and training. Having served in Singaporean households before, they come equipped with a wealth of knowledge in handling various household tasks. This experience enables them to quickly adapt to their new work environment and seamlessly integrate into the family’s daily routine.

Their proficiency in household chores, such as cooking, cleaning, and childcare, allows them to deliver top-notch home care services. With their expertise, employers can trust transfer maids to handle responsibilities competently, reducing the need for extensive training and supervision.

Moreover, transfer maids’ familiarity with Singapore’s culture and lifestyle further enhances their compatibility with local households. They understand the customs, traditions, and practices, making communication and coordination with family members more comfortable.

Potential Cost Savings

Hiring a transfer maid through our agency in Singapore can prove to be more cost-effective compared to hiring a new maid. While there might be an initial investment, the convenience of relying on an agency saves employers time and effort in the hiring process. With our dedicated services, we take care of all paperwork, find suitable candidates, and offer replacements efficiently. This can lead to significant cost savings in terms of training expenses and agency fees in the long run.

When hiring a transfer maid, certain fees are applicable, such as the foreign worker levy, security bond, medical examination, plane tickets, and related expenses. While these costs are part of the initial investment, they are outweighed by the numerous advantages of employing a seasoned transfer maid. Their prior experience and training mean they require less time for training and acclimatisation, resulting in a smoother integration into the household.

How much is the transfer maid agency fee for transfer maids in Singapore?

When hiring a transfer maid in Singapore, certain fees are applicable. The total amount of fees you need to pay will depend on the candidate/s you’re hiring. Some of these fees include:

  • Foreign worker levy – The levy costs $300 a month. For subsequent helpers, it costs $450 a month. For more information about the foreign worker levy, you can read more about it here. Additionally, it’s essential to address the levy concession, which forms an integral component of the support system tailored to assist Singaporean individuals requiring caregiving. As a Migrant Domestic Worker (MDW) employer, you become eligible for a concessional rate of $60 per month, provided you fulfil the stipulated eligibility criteria.
  • Insurance and Security bond – The security bond is a promise to pay the Singapore government amounting up to $5,000 if you break the law that governs employing a helper. You will be required to post a $5,000 security bond for each helper you employ. This is applicable to foreign helpers except for Malaysian nationals. Besides, employers are also required to procure medical insurance for their domestic workers. This insurance must offer a minimum coverage of S$15,000 annually for policies starting before 1st July 2023. After 1st July 2023, employers are obligated to secure personal accident insurance, assuring a sum assured of at least S$60,000 per year. This coverage encompasses unforeseen accidents leading to permanent disability or loss of life.
  • Medical Examination, if required.
  • Plane tickets and other related expenses if the transfer maid is going back to their source country.
  • Applicable transfer maid agency fees

How long does hiring a transfer maid take?

Hiring a transfer domestic helper is typically much faster than hiring through a maid agency. The Homekeeper team can guide you (as the new employer) through all the necessary transfer paperwork and processing required by MOM, which must be completed at least 30 days before the helper’s Work Permit expires. Once the paperwork is complete, it’s possible to arrange for a transfer date immediately if the current employer is agreeable. This means you can apply and hire a transfer maid within a month, depending on the processing period – compared to the months-long process of an agency route.

What support does the Homekeeper provide after hiring a transfer maid, such as contract renewals and work permit assistance?

At Homekeeper, our support does not end with the successful hiring of a transfer maid. We provide ongoing assistance with contract renewals and work permit matters to ensure compliance with regulations.

Our team remains available to address any concerns or queries you may have after hiring your transfer maid. Whether you are hiring a maid to take care of your baby or the elderly in your house, we are here to provide reliable support or guidance on contract renewals or assistance with work permit extensions.

What Satisfied Families Have Said

Doris Chua

Both my mum and myself have been really happy and satisfied with the domestic helper that we employed recently. This could not have been done without the help of Steven. We highly recommend Steven, who is very responsive and professional during this process.

From recruitment to the helper's arrival, it is just seamless - Steven prepared all the documents, quarantine, training, banks, etc. etc, we did not have to worry at all! Thank you Steven!

Mr Hong

"Want to say a big thank you to Josephine in Elias Mall branch for her kindness and patience to me and my family. I'm really enjoy Homekeeper Home-to-home service. I don't need to visit branch for entire hiring process. Everything can be done online. 

In this challenging time, getting a new helper from overseas is not easy. She is very patient to match the right profile for my family and always respond to my query even on her off days. 

Everything would not have been as smoothly if she didn't give us her guidance into getting our new helper into Singapore from Indonesia. We managed to clear SHN and swap tests successfully. And we are thankful for our smiley new helper this time of the year. 

I am very happy with her service and also the process in Homekeeper to bring in a new helper."

Ms Tew

"From the moment I send in enquiry via WhatsApp, I have the best service experience from Steven.

Everything from A to Z was explained to me in detail. Every question was answered precisely by Steven.

Many domestic helper's profile was shown to me. He also recommended several domestic helper which he thinks fit my requirement.

After sales service was prompt and his response was fast. Very happy and fortunate I engage MDW with Homekeeper Maid Agency instead of other Agency. Will highly recommend my relatives and friends to Homekeeper especially Steven.
