Why Are Employers Hiring Myanmar Maids?
In recent years, the number of Myanmar maids serving home care needs in Singapore has grown by 50% and it is considered one of the fastest growing group of migrant domestic workers (MDWs) in Singapore.
When it comes to the preferred nationality of maid hire, Myanmar maids are indeed an increasingly popular choice that come to the minds of Singaporean employers due to many reasons and benefits.
In the current markets in Singapore, the basic salary of a Myanmar maid is currently around $480 to $500, and this is minimally $100 less than the basic salary of Indonesian and Filipino helpers based in Singapore. As it would be a lower cost on your household monthly budget to pay for a Myanmar maid’s salary, many employers prefer to hire a Myanmar maid.
At the onset, Myanmar helpers (who are first time in Singapore), will need more guidance due to their language (basic english), but it is still quite a common consensus amongst employers that most Myanmar maids are quite teachable and good-natured. Due to their good attitude and mannerisms, and coupled with the right guidance by employers, they catch on fast to the communication and adjust well to their new work environments.
For Myanmar maids, their overseas processing time is usually much faster than Indonesian or Myanmar maids. This is because they do not require an embassy contract to be processed before arriving in Singapore (as compared to Filipino and Indonesian maids).
Due to their nature, many employers have personally feedbacked from experience that Myanmar maids tend to be less vocal and less demanding.
For some employers, when deciding on their maid hire, religion plays an important factor as they believe that someone who works in their household should share the same beliefs.

Upon recommendation from my nephew who used Island Maids Agency, I went to their Bedok Branch and Siti Aminah attended to me on 29/8/23. Siti patiently listened to my request for a helper to help with caring of an elderly and helping with housework. She sent several profiles of suitable candidates matching my requirements. I found a suitable candidate from Myanmar and interviewed her on video the next day. I appreciated Siti's video call even though she was off duty. My Myanmar helper started work at my home on 15/9/23. She is pleasant and keen to learn how to use the gas cooker and electrical appliances with my guidance. Thank you Island Maids Agency for a wonderful professional service.
