In China, it is not legal to hire domestic workers from other countries.

hiddenjelly:

Well that's not true. It's actually quite easy and it is LEGAL to hire through an agency as being directly employed as a foreigner the employer would need paperwork to employ foreigners.

 

Find some agencies that can help you OR you can try and find something under the table, but there would be no help if things turn sour with your employer if you use this method.

No, it is true.  And here is documentation to back it up: http://www.ilo.org/wcmsp5/groups/public/---asia/---ro-bangkok/documents/publication/wcms_114261.pdf

 

However, I can only surmise by your use of terms "under the table" and "agency" that you are representing one of the many illegal agencies that use the "foreign teacher" loophole to dupe people into paying you outrageous sums.

 

The Chinese government has been clamping down for the last year or so on that particular loophole and anyone caught working as a foreign domestic worker are being deported and their employers fined.

 

Fly-by-night "agencies" really don't care because they will just close their doors and open up someplace else to dupe more desperate people.

I'm sure you COULD, legalities aside, but why in the name of all that is holy would you WANT to? I mean, the from the part where it is not legal (as the above posters mentioned), which would require you to provide your own visa, which is about to become substantially more difficult isn't even the tip of the iceberg.                                                                                                      The kind of family that would pay a Westerner a salary they could be comfortable with as an ayi (that's a nanny/maid/handyman...that is what Chinese expect in a 'nanny') when they could damn well get a substantially cheaper Chinese 'nanny' produces one specific brand of child. Imperious, intractable brats who have spent their short lives being told that they are the golden objects the universe revolves around, specifically. And you had better believe you will be expected to treat the little shit like the very ground his fat ass walks on (these types are always fat little boys), is sacred--even if he hits you, spits on you, or anything  else.                                                                                                            Get a job as an au pair for a rich Westerner. It's legal, and there are just standards for the children's behavior.
