    hi, I also have a question on air ticket issue. If my maid is not living in Manila i.e. in other small town which is more expansive cost. Do I need to provide the air ticket to her home town? or only to Manila is okay?

    Thanks for advice.

    You're supposed to provide an airticket to the helper's hometown. This condition is actually stated in the employment contract - although some employers cheat by providing only the Manila-HK portion. (My helper told me that's what her previous employer did.)

    Cybabe that's great that your visa came so soon! Yes, you can designate someone to pick it up for you. But you probably need to sign some document (perhaps call Immig to check?). Don't forget to give that person the original proof of address. For payment, it's not just HK$160 - but you also need to pay the Retraining levy (either HK$2400 if you are paying in installments, or the full HK$9600, depending on what you chose when you filled out the forms.) HK Immig only takes cash or cheque, but not VISA or EPS.

    Hi Peainpod,

    Yeah u right I have recfm with immigration need to pay hkd160 visa fee and levy together when i pick up the visa. I also speak with my maid she ask me to use LBC coureir is better than DHL as her place is far away from town ( 6 hrs travel to manila airport) . So i will call LBC tonight once i get the visa and send from there instead.
    Hope it wont take long send it to there

    Hi,

    I have read all the threads on this, however I have some questions if someone can help me. My visa should be approved soon appartantly it took over 6 weeks as they lost some documents.
    My next stage is to get the TEV to show the PH consulate, I would prefer to book her ticket online as this would be cheaper via cebu pacific, but if you do this, how to get the TEV to show the PH consultate as I would book this when she is ready to leave PH?
    Or is the travell agent the same price as online for buying a ticket? I guess going through an agent you can get the TEV easily and then confirm the ticket later when the maid is ready?
