Taking helper with family to HK

Postby Shagwah » Wed, 29 Aug 2012 5:46 pm

Hi

We are new to having a helper and Singapore and did not go through an agency to find our lovely helper. We would like to take her with us to HK early next year. I have a gut feeling it's not as simple as buying a ticket and booking accommodation.

Do we need to complete a form to request 'permission' to take her out of the country for 7 nights? She is Filipino if matters.

Thanks in advance.

I assume that her WP states you as her employer right? It shouldn't be a problem. She can travel in and out of country like a regular traveler. You only need to worry about her visa as I believe that Filipinos require visa in HK.

Filipinos don't need a visa for HK for sightseeing up to 14 days.

Fipinos do not require a visa for HK. As long as you are her employer registered with MOM, you can book a ticket and take her with you. We just did that last month with our helper and there were no issues. Just make sure her passport is valid with at least 6 months before expiration.
