Filipino Maids in Singapore

Filipina Maid in Singapore - Best Housekeeper

An estimated 200,000 Filipinos live and work in Singapore and actively contribute to the economic development of both the Philippines and Singapore. Approximately 60% of Filipinos in Singapore are professionals and skilled workers, while the rest are employed as household service workers. This implies about one-third of the domestic helpers in Singapore are Filipinos. Filipino helpers have been a top choice for families in Singapore.

All helpers from the Philippines have to go through nationalised basic training from their country before their arrival in Singapore. Migrant Domestic workers from the Philippines must undergo training administered by the country’s Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). This particular training programme ensures Filipino helpers are able to perform fundamental household duties, and with this, Singapore Employers are also reassured that basic standards are maintained in terms of training their Migrant Domestic Workers.

Filipino helpers need to register with the embassy, a process that must be done through an accredited agency in the case of first-timers. Best Housekeeper is an accredited maid agency, so we will be able to help. The Philippine Government has strict legal guidelines and processes to protect their citizens who wish to work overseas. The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA is the government organisation that takes care of the process. The POEA will be the one to issue the Filipino maid’s exit visa, also known as the Overseas Employment Certificate or OEC. This document is always needed when domestic workers plan to take up employment abroad and need to be processed with an accredited agency like Best Housekeeper.
