Can domestic helpers quarantine in Hotels beyond the 21-days or voluntarily before joining a new family?

No. We called the Labour Department to inquire about this. We received the response that domestic helpers who processed overseas cannot extend their stay beyond the 21-day hotel quarantine. Nor can domestic helpers who processed locally do a voluntary hotel quarantine after their new visa has been picked up. This is because these two scenarios would violate the live-in requirement for domestic helpers.
