    Sorry, just one other question. What is the basic wage for Domestic helpers? I have seen it somewhere but just wanted to confirm. We were going to start our DH off on this with $400 a month for food. Is this fair and reasonable?

    If she's on a visitors visa, she has to exit HK before you can submit her papers to immigration. Yes you will need to pay for her ticket back to HK.

    Min wage I think is $3400.

    Check out Cebu Pacific for air fares

    I want to hire a DH who has worked for previous employer for 2 years 4 months. And then such employer terminate her by "personal reason". If I want to hire this DH, as she already started a new contract for 4 months already, can I still apply for delay of her home leave for 1 year?? If yes, how long I have to wait for her to work for me??

    I talked to her previous employer for a reference. She sounded everything done by this DH is ok and average but still refuse to say who she terminate her ( she said personal reason again). What are the possible risk of hiring a DH in this situation?? She is willing to provide Tel no of ALL of her previous employer.Thanks for any advice
