What is the Household Services Scheme?

The Household Services Scheme (HSS) allows companies to hire more migrant workers to provide part-time domestic services, such as home cleaning, grocery shopping, car-washing and pet-sitting.

Difference between engaging a migrant domestic worker and the services of an HSS company.

Migrant domestic workers live with their employers, and can only work for them. 

Workers from HSS companies can be deployed to multiple houses on a part-time basis to provide select household services. They also do not live in the houses that they work at.

Families who need household services on an ad-hoc basis can engage the service of a HSS company, instead of hiring a full-time live-in migrant domestic worker.

To give households more options to meet their need for domestic services, HSS companies will be able to offer basic child-minding and elder-minding services in the second half of 2022. Households may engage HSS workers to look after their children at home or provide some basic assistance for their family members in activities of daily living.
