    Dear IL,

    We have started to look for a live in maid and wondering if you have any tips to offer. We prefer to have someone who is Indian/Nepal/Srilanka. I heard that it is difficult to get Indian maid for Indian family and what is your experience? What is the best way to go forward searching for a maid?

    Thanks in advance

    No, we haven't found yet. We have a visa approval for Nepal nationality. We have asked our friends/colleague for some reference.. and waiting. We may go to an agency otherwise.

    Meena, We cannot get maid visa of same nationality.We can get from other countries.If I need to get an Indian I have to look locally who is eligible to work(with her sponsor's permission) or the ones with free visa.

    Meena, we got one maid from SL earlier and we spent less than 4000 Riyals I guess.2000 for embassy deposit(refundable)+ visa charges+medical+flight charges.But we had to send her back as she was becoming a pain for us:-(.

    I think if you go through agency you need to pay around 10K.
