Live-in Maid

By Minoriza

Hi everyone,

My family and I are moving to Qatar soon. We'd like to bring along our live-in Indonesian maid to live with us in Qatar. Would appreciate it if anyone could advice the immigration/labour regulations in bringing maids into the country?

Any web-stes we could check or any agencies we could contact?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I think the Ministy of the Interior deal with this sort of thing. The phone number for the Visa Office is +974 465 6615 - maybe they can point you in the right direction.

Sorry can't be of anymore help.

Hi, I believe that new laws have been brought in re: maids. I think their is a mininum age they have to be, I think it is 30 from what i read in the paper. You would have to sponsor your maid that means you would have to have your residents permit already. They can come in on a 28 day visit visa and you would have to apply for their RP within that time. Some people fly to dubai or bahrain and return to get an extension of another 28days on their visa.

There are lots of indonesian maids here looking for work if you couldn't bring in your maid.

Sorry couldn't be more help.
