What is the availability and cost of household help, and what types of help are typically employed by expatriates?

I brought my own live-in nanny with me. Iceland is not part of the EU so there are no wage requirements here. - Feb 13, 2013
Expensive. You can usually find someone to clean your house once a week. Cost is between $60 - $100 depending on the size of your home. Diplomats can bring live-in help with them. - Jul 29, 2011
