1. Reasons for Providing Foreign Domestic Driver Service

According to statistics from the Census and Statistics Department, the number of foreign domestic helpers approved by the Immigration Department for special driving has risen from 1,664 in 2006 to 1,787 last year. Of these, 1,442 were male foreign domestic helpers, while female foreign domestic helpers saw the largest increase, at 17%.


As more employers hire foreign helpers, they increasingly hope that these helpers can also serve as family drivers and handle tasks such as taking children to school. Consequently, we specifically offer Filipino driver recruitment services to cater to the needs of such employers.

2. Service Details

Domestic drivers are permitted to operate family vehicles with up to 8 seats, such as sedans or vans, and provide driving and shuttle services for their employers and their family members. This includes trips to and from schools, hospitals, markets, shopping centres, etc. In addition to shuttle services, domestic drivers are also required to handle various household chores, including cooking, housework, and caring for the elderly and infants, to comply with the visa requirements for Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW).

The Benefits of Hiring a Foreign Domestic Driver

The Filipino drivers you hire will provide full-time services and live with you. In most cases, hiring a Filipino driver costs less than hiring a local Hong Kong driver. However, they are also required to handle a variety of housework, such as preparing daily meals, caring for and transporting family members, and running errands. Filipino drivers can also maintain, service, clean, and wipe your car. Moreover, their status as foreigners helps protect your vehicle from damage, theft, or being used for unauthorised work.
