Maids in Oman (Domestic Help)

Most middle-class Omani families and Westerners in Muscat employ domestic help whether part-time or full-time.

Most domestic help workers come from India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and the Philippines. Costs vary depending on whether the housemaid has worked for expats before. Some families are paying about 75 Omani riyals, or $195, per month for a live-in maid; some are paying about $300 per month. It's all an agreement between the employer and the housemaid. The Omanis get them cheaper, and they don't give them as many days off as Westerners typically do. Usually you get the housemaid from a departing family.
