Transfer Maid

Transfer maids are tailored to assist families looking to hire experienced Indonesian helpers and Myanmar helpers who are already residing in Singapore.

Why hire a Transfer maid?

There are two options for employers when considering to hire a maid in Singapore. The first option is to choose a helper who is still in their home country and the other option is to choose a Transfer maid. These are maids who have either finished their employment contract or seeking to transfer to a new employer.

Transfer maids who are already in Singapore with legal status are known for their adaptability and diligence in performing daily household tasks. They have more experience managing household routines and provide assistance for elderly care and childcare in dynamic Singaporean households. With their pior understanding and on the ground work trainings aid a faster and smoother integration into your home.

A significant advantage of choosing transfer maids is the ability to conduct face-to-face interviews ensuring a perfect fit for your household’s needs. Additionally, their status as transfer maid allows for a quicker deployment meaning families can receive the needed assistance without unexpected delay as compared to overseas maids awaiting documents approval. They are also cost efficient and more affordable for families who require immediate home assistance.

At Hire A Maid, our transfer maids are carefully handpicked by our dedicated professional team to ensure that families do not compromise in the quality of their helpers. We ensure that our transfer maids undergo the same strict training procedures and background checks as our overseas maids.
