Hi Kabayan, actually you got a better type of Visa because your Visa as secretary can even be upgraded if ever you got a better job. However if you got a Househelp/DH/Kadama, you're Visa will always be of a domestic helper.

Just be very careful of paying money. Better go for PDOS or other requirement but dont pay until you dont have your Visa and contract.

hi there! they just used the secretary visa because the job for baby sitter is urgent... i think they got a prob of getting a new helper from phils. thats why they used the company visa instead of sending me a servant visa...

be careful before paying money , many people are cheated by recruitment agencies , especially once you are here they will provide less salary rather than the offered salary , i know some labors who are charged for a huge amount of money by the recruitment agencies by offering a good salary , and once this guy joined in the Qatari company they accused him that he is not experienced and they reduced 400 from his total salary 1200 ( many Qatar employers are doing this trick on workers ). so this guy decided to go home since he cannot cover the money payed for the business visa ( not even residence visa ). now he does not have money even for his food ,and he has to pay for the business visa , pro charge , his advance ( he worked for 15 days , but company is saying they will give this money only after the compleat month ) this recruiting company told him they will give him ticket once he will sign that he does not have any complaints against the company.but again they cheated him after they got this letter from him . so be careful , even if you want to for labor you need lots of money
