Are you considering hiring a new or transfer maid? At our agency, we offer a simple pricing structure for both choices.
Transfer maids in Singapore are individuals with prior local work experience and are typically still residing in the country.
- Agency Fee $1200
This fee includes the cost of lodging, transport, training, and medical expenses.
- Maid Insurance $490
- MOM Fee $70
New or Ex Singapore Maid
$1,540 + Placement Fee
New maids refer to those who have never worked in Singapore, while Ex Singapore maids have previous work experience in the country. However, both categories represent maids who are currently overseas.
- Agency Fee $980
This fee includes the cost of airfare, lodging, transport, training, and medical expenses.
- Maid Insurance $490
- MOM Fee $70
- Placement Fee 4-8 months (Maid's salary)
You initially pay this on behalf of your future maid, and then gradually recoup it by deducting from the maid's monthly salary.
- POEA Fee (Only for Filipino Maid) $900
POEA is the government organization that issue the Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) that is needed when Filipino helpers plan to take up employment abroad.
Example for hiring a New or Ex Singapore maid
A placement fee (aka maid loan), is an amount you pay to a maid agency for their work in recruiting and arranging employment for a maid. You can think of it as a loan that the maid requires to work here, which you, the employer, must initially pay on her behalf.
However, this fee isn’t an extra cost for you. You’ll get this money back by deducting the maid’s salary in the first few months she works for you. The length of time for these deductions depends on the total amount of the loan taken by the maid.
In this example, the placement fee is $2,500, which is equivalent to 5 months of the maid’s salary. You are required to settle this cost initially for your maid. Consequently, you won’t need to pay her salary for the first 5 months of her employment, as she is essentially repaying her loan to you during this period.
Transfer vs New Maids
Transfer maids are experienced individuals who have previously worked in Singapore, while new maids, potentially with overseas experience, are entirely new to the Singaporean work environment.
