can anyone please tell me how much maid/housekeepers charge/month here in taiwan , working full day (9-5) ,5 days a week. my maid/helper usually does all the housework and if am away on some chore looks after my 16 month old-there have also been times when she has taken my 3 1/2 to the playground-she is a philipino but has taiwanese citizenship
i have a feeling am paying her way more than the norm i urgently needed a maid when i hired her and i think didnt negotiate properly-just was curious if there is a guideline to follow when deciding on the pay.
On a part-time basis you can expect to pay 250-350* per hour, and as the hours increase (to a full-time basis for example) you can negotiate for a set salary per month.
You can find full-time help, legal and with experience, for as little as NT20,000/month and as much as NT45,000/month.
*There is a lady who charges 350/400 per hour for housekeeping to some of the users on this forum but they say she is exceptional at what she does, very efficient, and worth the money.
I wonder if people would participate in a poll? I'll try to put one up now.

We are apllying right now for a full time helper.
The salary for her for 6days a week is 15840 NT
If you are foreigner the gov ask 10000NT/month (2000 if taiwanese)
You also have to participate to her health insurance 800 NT
Then provide food, room. so basicly its 26600NT/months.
I whent thought all steps and prosses by myself so if you have some questions I can help...
26600NT/months is just the cash you pay but you haven't calculate the lodging+meals cost. An 8-ping room rent is about 8,000NT these days. Plus power bills and 3 meals a day, an extra 10,000NT is a safe bet.
Questions for Gege =>
We also would like to apply for a foreign worker to help for our twin boys and housekeeping as looking for a local nanny is quite impossible... Please let us know what are the conditions both for "foreigners" and "taiwanese" and processes. Maybe can you recommend your agent?
Gege, as you saying the government charges you nearly as much as her salary in "fees" simply for the privilege of being allowed to hire a foreign worker? I was under the impression it's still illegal to hire foreign domestic help unless you have a live-in relative who needs constant care (say, a elderly parent).
Yes don't hired run away pilipina cause so dangerous ...so that why many pilipina wanted to run away because of the salary of 250 to 350 be careful ..just ask first legal or ilegal
