How to employ foreign maid

I have been getting this question on how to get a maid. What is the steps and procedures and most importantly, how much did you pay for it?

Since I still keep the e-mail given by the "agent" that processed my application, for those of you who are shy enough to call the Immigration Department or afraid to approach the foreign worker agency.. consider yourselves lucky. Here are the step by step procedures to apply for a foreign maid. The info is valid as of October 2008. I'm not sure what changed since the "economic downturn".

Still confused? I think you are. Let's try again.

Step 1 should be simple enough right? If you can't manage this, I doubt you can manage maid of your own lah my friend.

Now Step 2 is much more complicated. Very very much more I tell you.

First and foremost, you need to have a candidate for maid. Someone that maybe the agent in the foreign country has it, or your relatives or friends can recommend one for you.
Next the candidate must go for a medical check up. The clinic must be authorized by the foreign country Immigration office to perform the medical check up. If not.. the medical certificate/document is not valid.
With the medical check up results, the candidate then has to go to apply for a passport. In order for him/her to do that, an interview process will be done.
Once the passport is done, get the candidate or the agent to courier the medical check up documents (original) and the photocopy of the passport.
Once you've received the documents, then only you can proceed to Step 2 in the table above.


At the end of Step 2, you are supposed to have
:
i) RESIT PEMBAYARAN **
ii) PERMOHONAN PAS LAWATAN KERJA SEMENTARA **
iii) PERMOHONAN PAS LAWATAN KERJA SEMENTARA - Salinan Majikan**

These documents need to be sent to the candidate/ agent in the foreign country. The documents will be used to apply for working permit. By now I believe you've spent RM470 in Malaysia. Not to mention the cost incurred in the foreign country; medical check up, passport, transport etc.

Once the candidate has got his/her working permit, you may now arrange for flight ticket. Make sure you bring all the needed documents to pick up the maid at the airport. Wear proper attire.

If you guys manage to get to this stage, congratulations! No more cleaning the toilet and hand wash your laundry anymore. But don't be too happy yet. In order for the maid to work legally here in Malaysia, the person must be certified medically here by FOMEMA. Follow Step 3 for this. Should be simple enough. It must be done within 30 days after the maid arrives Malaysia. Once FOMEMA cleared their part, you need to bring the maid's passport to the Immigration Office for sticker placement. Refer the end of Step 3.

So there you go. Anymore questions? I wish you all the best for your maid applications. May you all get the reliable ones and once you do treat him/her properly. My father always reminds me, the maid is your helper, not your slave. They should only be asked to do work that you are willing to do.

Thanks and best regards...

salam..

found ur blog while searching for bandung accomodation ie hotel karmila.. do u recommend this hotel?

btw this piece is very beneficial. thnak you for the effort of explaining every little details. jazakallah

rumet said...

i would recommend this place for the fact that the price is reasonable and it is on Dago Street. So if you feel that the traffic is very bad during one particular period, you may just walk down the street to go to the FOs..

Saya dari Singapura, tinggal di Malaysia sekarang. Saya mempunyai maid singapore. Saya cari informasi untuk menukar permit singapore ke malaysia, terjumpa pula blog awak, sangat berguna! Tapi saya tak tahu kalau ada masalah jika majikan - iaitu saya dan suami adalah warga Singapore.
