Hi, has anyone here gotten a maid from overseas on your own without using an agency?

Can you please share the procedure?

I am thinking of employing an Indonesian maid who used to work with my sis a year ago. She returned due to an accident affecting a family member. She's very good and told us that she'll be willing to come back once everything is settled at home.

Now I'm thinking of getting her but am not sure of the procedure.
