Herzliya Pituach - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Household help can be hard to find. Some find weekly cleaners (typically they work two half days at two different homes) for about $20/hour. - Aug 2023

We have not used any because it is expensive. - Mar 2022

Local help is expensive. From nannies, cleaners to gardeners, you will pay $40+ an hour. There is a large Filipino community here and can take about a month to get the work visa figured out with the Israel and Philippino embassies. This route will be the most cost-effective route. Some workers here already will offer once a week cleaning help to supplement their income - Sep 2021

About US$12-$15 per hour and easy to find. - Aug 2013

Readily available, about US$10 an hour. - Apr 2006
