    Hi,
    I am new to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on">Doha</st1:City>… relocated to <st1:City w:st="on">Doha</st1:City> after a long stay in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Kuwait</st1:place></st1:country-region>. Anybody can tell me how to get a nanny immediately. (Keralite or tamil preferably)
    Any agencies supply them legally? (There were many approved agencies in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Kuwait</st1:country-region></st1:place> for supplying maids). Part time also will be okay. We are staying in Najma near Gulf Cinema….

    Regards,

    Ayyan

    Please be VERY careful with local hire ladies!

    I had one for 5 years, and had to fire her, because I began to realize that she had been stealing from me ALL THE TIME!

    It was little, seemingly un-noticeable things, mostly grocery items, but many other things went missing too.

    I was particularly annoyed because I had been so kind to her over the years.

    Anyway, now, I have sponsored someone from an agency. So far, so good.

    You can advertise on Qatar Living, but be sure to find out if she has any references, and find out as much information as possible. Ask to see her passport and/or ID card.

    If I can think of any other tips, I'll post again.

    Thanks for the info, I know one incident happened in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Kuwait</st1:place></st1:country-region>, the illegal maid got murdered outside home and the owner keralite family had been arrested and suffered more than a year…terrible...so need to take precautions..
    So legally, looking for any contacts of that agency?

    Thanks and regards,

    Ayyan, Please be careful while hiring maids.If you hire illegal ones you will be in deep trouble.There are several incidents where the illegal maids steal jewelleries ,money and run away leaving the kids(infants too) at home.You cannot file a complaint even.

    Give advertisement in Gulf-times and say explicitly that VISA must .

    Muscat99 , May I know the maid name whom you had fireD.We have hired one recently and I do not have that comfort feeling.She is from Andhra and her name is Padma.

    Hai Hema,

    Thanks for the information. I got one cleaning boy, weekly twice 350 riyals, seems okay...now actually no maid required for our small family, but I want somebody in the house because the situation here is differ from Kuwait, wife is alone whole the day, even nobody in the whole floor of our apprtmt. I wonder our building is having more than 50 flats but nearly 20 occupied all others empty, may be that is because of the higher rent, similar flats available in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Kuwait</st1:country-region></st1:place> for max 200 dinars (approx 2500qr) but here it is 8000 riyals. So all the flats are empty, no neighbors!!!
