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 $450 to $470, 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.

What Our Customers Say
We believe in providing the best service to people.
Let the testimony be our voice!
It was our first time hiring a helper and we were clueless. We were served by Seven (at AMK),he explained to us every single detailed properly and ensure we are not stress about anything. He even keep in touch with us after we had our helper to ensure we are coping well.
In order to employ a domestic maid for my home, I went to AMK Branch Sales Manager Ng Di Shen (Seven). He carefully and thoroughly outlined the selection maid criteria. When we have faced any problem, he assists us extremely professionally by talking to the maid. He always stands with the owner's perspective to assist in problem-solving. After we have hired the maid, Mr. Seven is also a service Oriental to do the follow up with the maid performance. His office phone number is (655) 7703.
A big thank you to Island Maid AMK branch consultant Shana for recommending Masiroh to our family. It has been almost 1.5 months since Masiroh joined us, and she has been a pleasure addition. A great help in the family with house chores and looking after my parents-in-law in their 80s. We feel reassured having Masiroh look after mother-in-law who needs to go for dialysis treatments, in our absence. Additionally, Shana has just helped us to hire another helper, Putri, to help my own elderly parents. She is just 4 days old at home, but proving herself to be reliable and a great help in the family too. Thank you Shana for taking the time and effort to understand our two families’ needs and recommending Masiroh and Putri respectively. Regards, Joyce
As a first timer getting a maid, I am extremely pleased with the prompt, efficient and friendly services by Islands Maids. Its manager, Joanne Lee, is very knowledgeable and proactive. She even dropped into my home after work at night to bring me papers to sign. She is responsive to queries with practical solutions on solving all the practicalities such as how to select a maid, opening bank account for maid and the necessary paper works with ministry of manpower. The maid is excellent in her works and attitudes. I would highly recommend Islands Maids to anyone who needs a maid. Cai Yiming. 7 November 2022
I would like to thank Peggie Tee @ Bedok branch, who is very helpful , responsive and patient to customers. I am very satisfying with her service as if without her helps I couldn’t get a good helper in such a limit time. Hence, Island Maids Agency will always be my first choice & I will recommend Peggie Tee to my friends and family!!!
Peggie from Bedok Branch was very helpful and offered constructive advice when I was urgently looking for a FDW for my parents. A good match was found within a few weeks despite the current shortage. Paperwork was seamless and handover was smooth. She also followed up to check on the FDW. My own helper was engaged through Island Maids 2.5 years ago and though it was from a different branch and staff, the service was equally professional and we found a good match as well. Have recommended a few friends and will continue to recommend Island Maids.
Engaging this agency was a worry free experience ! My agent Heize guided me through the recruitment process, and I felt confident that I was in good hands. ! As a result I found the perfect helper. I like the fact that they take time with screening to match the helper with the employer. I highly recommend this Agency !
