Live-in house maid

By Banker

Seek advise / info; We are from Mumbai, India and are about to shift in 20 days to Doha. We have a live-in maid with us and want to take her with us. someone from Doha yesterday informed that Indians are not allowed to take Indian maids with them - is this true? Our youngest is quite attached to this woman and in a new country it would be comforting top have her with us - is there some way we can take her with us?

Hi Banker,

I am from Orissa, India and moving to Doha. I would also like to

bring my baby caretaker with us to Doha. She is also an Indian.

I would really appreciate, if you can advise me in this regard.

Thanks in advance,

Vinita

Would appreciate any advise on how to bring a live-in maid into Doha. We may be moving to Doha from Dubai and would like to bring our Indonesian live in domestic helper, who's currently on my husband's sponsorship. We're a family of six on British Passports. Are there any taxes or levies and if so how much? Many thanks

As far as i know , you are not allowed to sponsor or get a maid of your same nationality. So basically since your an Indian , as per the present rules you will not be able to get an indian maid under your sponsorship. But you are allowed to sponsor a maid from a different nationality other than yours and i believe there a certain conditions like your salary has to be above a certain amount.

Anywhere in the gulf No nationality can import their own as maids...What the gent above means by Sponsor is that Your sponsor can be the sponsor of your maid...for a price..

Thanks Helloqatar for your inouts, but I am unclear - do you mean they can sponsor the maid too - that would be employing her by my employer, or did you mean they need to give some permission for me to be able to sponsor the maid? Pls. advise
