Getting a good maid is hard. Here are the options.
- Ask the maid agencies here in KSA. They'll charge on monthly or hourly basis. Though they say so but actually they don't take that much responsibility after they outsource.
- Use your connections (friends, colleagues etc)
- Please check with your sponsor if you can recruit a maid from her native country. (Iqama profession must allow that). This is the best option in my view. But it takes around 6 months and 16-18K SAR expenses.

hey not sure in khobar, but hear there is plenty just ask any of ur saudi friends. I paid SAR9000 about 1 and half year back. with other stuff like iqama and medical costs total 11500. it took 3 months to get a maid. you have to review some cv's and make a choice. try to follow up a lot with the agency, some give u a run around if u dont follow up. getting good help may be tough. my experience - first 3 months everything is great, after this the quality of work went down. cant wait for the maid to go back, lol. hey but not every1 has a hard time.
I wish you Good luck! I am here with 3 kids since almost two months, and have Stoped almost all phlipino community in Hotels, restaurante, hospitwls and nothing, if you Find a way please keep me posted I have hesrd of agencies taking 15000 riyals but again they are coming directly from sudan, eretria Indonesia and you dont have a recommendtion at all as have never done Job before, what do you do once they are here after The whole paperwork? But Good luck and please let me know anyways i can ask for al Khobar área maybe luckier I can only say i am a 24 hour House maid!
I have a suggestion if you only need one for a few hours at a time, few times per week: hire women who are already here working as cleaners at hospitals, etc. They welcome part-time work and there's no sponsorship hassles, etc.
Hi, I'm living in Khobar and want to hire a full-time maid.I found one actually but i need a help from an experienced friend about iqama transfer. Maid is living here in KSA during 2 years and her contract will end in a month.Her sponsor agreed to release her and she wants to go to Manila for a month.How will i be her sponsor?(I am engineer and have right to get a maid i think).Shall i let her go to Manila first without transferring or shall i transfer and let her go?What is the prosedure? I appreciate for a reply because i have to inform her about progress.
Asunkar, If she has a "no-objection" I "think" either way, but regardless of how it's done, let the poor girl go home for some time before working again. I understand it's an opportunity for these girls to get gainfull employment but they also have families back home and would love to get the chance to see them over the festive season, bearing in mind that the vast percentage are Catholic..... You'll be surprised just how much grateful she will be on return... cheery, replenished with hope and most of all happy to have such a good employer... you'll be spoken about in Manila for sure!
Hi there I have a friend who can get you a maid in a matter of a month maybe two. If you want I can give you his contact info and you could ask him all you want and he's pretty knowledgeable about the whole process. My family and I have used him with success. He speaks decent English but he may be a bit pricey. Just PM me if you are interested Pay it forward
