    Since April 2003 - Helpers are not allowed to live-out. It is illegal

    please check this forum thread: FT live out dh

    It is legal unless it is permitted by the Director of Immigration. There are many cases of stay-out Foreign Domestic Helpers in HK.

    Cheers!!!

    That's true you need to obtain approval from the Director of Immigration, if suitable live-in accomodation is not available. If you read the footnote on the immigration site -

    Examples of unsuitable accommodation are: the Helper having to sleep on made-do beds in the corridor with little privacy or sharing a room with an adult or teenager of the opposite sex.

    In Barb's case, they are a family of 6 and space was an issue.

    Part Time Helper

    Ladies,

    I've had Amy come by several times a week for the last month (recommended by another mom on Geobaby) and she is AWESOME! She is flexible with her hours, already lives in a boarding house so doesn't need you to help take care of that. She takes care of my 1 year old son including taking him to the playgroup on occasion. While he is sleeping, she is busy taking care of household chores. She is just great. Send me a message if you would like her to call you or want more [email protected]

    Ladies,

    I have a part-time helper who I won't be using anymore as I am going back to work and will have a live-in helper. The part-timer is AMAZING with our son who I am EXTREMELY particular about. Her name is Amy if anybody needs a part time helper. Send me a message and I'll have her call you. She is awesome. She has more energy than I do sometimes with our son and when he sleeps she is always doing something else - cleaning, vacuuming, ironing, laundry, etc. She has even taken our dog out a couple of times upon my request.

    Let me know if you need somebody and I'll have her call you. She already stays in a boarding house so that won't need to be organized/paid for. I would HIGHLY recommend her - she was recommended to me by another mom on geobaby!!

    You can email me at [email protected]

    Dear patts,
    Where do you live? Are you still looking for a babysitter? I know one, she is available in late June, but she can only speak cantonese.
