Dos and don’ts to avoid trouble with maids
• Give the maid a true picture of what to expect before she comes to work for you. Make her understand she is not coming for a holiday abroad

• Choose a maid who does not have an ailing husband or small kids back home. They may have genuine concerns and can easily become homesick

• Wait for a month before you stamp the visa on the passport. That gives you enough time to study her behaviour and commitment to work.

• Don’t let your housemaid go out unaccompanied for a long period of time. You are inviting trouble.

• Always keep monthly salary slips and make your maid signs on them on their pay day. You may need to show proof at the embassy (GN).

Dubai Immigration Help Line No. 800 5111

Public can register complaints with the Department by calling  04-7074878 or 04-7074889.
