Am I eligible to hire a domestic helper?
To hire a domestic helper you only need to meet two requirements:
1) You need to be an official Hong Kong resident. This doesn’t mean permanent resident – being here on a working or dependent’s visa is ok too.
2) You have to show that you are ‘financially capable’ of employing a domestic helper. This means having a minimum total income of $15,000 a month per domestic helper hired. Alternatively, you can show that you own enough assets to support the costs of hiring a domestic helper for their entire two-year contract.
