    Hiring a maid or helper in Hong Kong

    Hello everyone, We've heard that its fairly inexpensive to hire a helper in Hong Kong. Can someone point me in the right direction on how one would do this? We have got a few condos lined up for us to look at when we visit Hong Kong next week and some of them have "maid quarters". This is a bit strange and luxurious for us, having lived in North America all our lives.

    Paul, Thank you for the scoop. Having seen some of the conditions we put our migrant and unskilled labour through in the states, I would not be surprised by anything in Hong Kong.

    you just need to pay for minimum wages 3,400 HK$ if live-in helper. Plus processing fees from agencies if you will going to hired from agency. If the helper you've hired is smart and she knows how to process the papers by herself, you just spend around 2,000 HK$ for the processing.
