Maids in Vietnam (Domestic Help)

Good domestic help can make a big difference to you and your family’s enjoyment of Hanoi. They can work every day or once a week. The number of staff needed and their salaries differ according to individual households, with varying emphasis on their responsibility and ability. At the higher end of the salary range are staff that speak good English, demonstrate initiative, and have several years experience working for Westerners. Giving your staff a TET bonus – equivalent to one month's salary – is standard practice in Vietnam. Locally employed domestics do not live in.

A cook/housekeeper ($120-220 per month) plans the meals with you, shops for food, supervises any work done in your house, supervises other household staff, keeps a kitchen account book, does the laundry, and cleans the house.

A maid ($130-150 per month) cleans the house, washes dishes, irons clothes, may prepare meals on the cook's day off, and may do some marketing. It is possible to have part-time domestic help for a couple of days per week for well under $100/month.

A nanny ($120-150 per month) takes care of the children. May help with some light cooking and general housecleaning if the family is small.

A driver ($120-150 per month) acts as chauffeur. Purchases the gas and oil, keeps your car in good operating condition, may tend the garden, and may help out during social functions.
