MOHRE releases packages in hiring Filipino domestic helpers in UAE

by | TOP STORIES

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MOHRE) has released four packages offered by Tadbeer centers in hiring foreign domestic helpers in the UAE.

The first package allows families to hire household service workers (HSWs) including private teachers from outside the UAE.

The cost of hiring depends on the country of origin of the desired employee. The prices are as follows:

  • Philippines – Dh14,000
  • Indonesia and Sri Lanka – Dh15,000
  • Ethiopia – Dh5,000
  • Kenya and Uganda – Dh6,500
  • India – Dh12,000
  • Bangladesh – Dh7,000
  • Nepal – Dh14,500

 

The second package allows employers to hire an HSW for a short contractual period of six months. Once the six-month period is over, the employer and employee could settle if the worker will be sponsored by the family for a longer contract. If both parties agree to stay with each other, a transfer fee will be imposed.

Country of Origin Monthly salary (During the six-month short contract) Transfer fee (if both parties will agree on a longer contract)
Philippines and Indonesia Dh2,500 Dh8,000
Sri Lanka Dh 2,200 Dh8,000
Bangladesh Dh2,250 Dh4,500
Kenya Dh2,250 Dh3,500
Uganda and Ethiopia Dh2,300 Dh3,500
India and Nepal Dh2,250 Dh6,000

 

The third package involves temporary hiring of HSW, but unlike the second package, the service lasts for a longer period of time. The duration of service lasts for two years. However, the employee can no longer work as a resident worker to the family once the period is over unlike the second package where both parties could agree whether or not the employee should stay with the family after six months of service.

Maximum monthly wage of HSWs under this package depends on the country of origin of the employee.

  • Philippines and Indonesia – Dh2,500
  • Sri Lanka, Ethiopia, and Uganda – Dh2,300
  • Bangladesh, Kenya, Nepal, and India – Dh2,250

 

The last package is needs-based hiring where families can hire HSWs depending on their needs. Services are offered on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis.

The rates are as follows:

  • 4 hours a day – Dh120
  • 8 hours a day – Dh200
  • 7 days – Dh1,120
  • 30 days – Dh3,500

 

In May, MOHRE opened the first 11 Tadbeer centers that serve as a mediator between domestic workers and customers.

Tadbeer centers serve as the government’s replacement for domestic worker recruitment agencies.

Three new Tadbeer centers opened in Ajman, two others in Abu Dhabi, four in Dubai, one in Sharjah, and another in Fujairah.

Services related to recruitment and processing of employment requirements are offered in Tadbeer centers. The centers can issue medical tests, health insurance and ID services.

As mediators, Tadbeer service centers will ensure that domestic workers will acquire high quality visa and training and education.

Tadbeer centers will also conduct pre-arrival interviews to explain workers’ contractual rights and assess housing and accommodation.

The center will also serve to resolve disputes between workers and employees.

By the end of the year, another 14 Tadbeer centers are still set to open across UAE.
