What to do with Domestic Maid when going overseas?

Postby mich1998 » Sun, 03 Apr 2016 3:17 pm

Hi guys , so my family just recently hired an indonesian maid. but we'll be going overseas for 2 month full. We were wondering what to do with the maid during our overseas trip? It's perhaps not such a good idea to let her stay at home for the whole time.. but if we place her in the agency center, it would mean that we will be paying up to $50 a day which is a lot... What do we do about her? Send her back home for home visit?
Thanks!

Home visit or just trust her. We routinely leave ours for weeks at a time.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Your agency will know the hostels for maids. 50 $ a day sounds high. For that cost, you may send her on home leave, 60 X 50 = $ 3,000, maybe cheaper to send her on vacation :)

Later, I can check the cost of maid hostels, through my agency contacts.
