The application was based upon me taking over her employment from my sister. Yes she continued working for my sister while working for me. In fact she still works for her. My sister would give her a reprieve from her duties so she could help look after my kids while I was around. Her kids are now teenagers and do not need as much attention so she doesn't need her as much as when her kids were younger. However, I have young kids and so I was led to believe that I could take over her employment under the terms of the domestic worker visa requirements.
I typically visit 2 times a year and stay for about 2 weeks. In some years, more just depends on what's going on. Yes it was during these periods that she would work for me and yes I paid her for her services during that period. Unfortunately, I always paid her cash.
Thank you for your response. I just had a followon question on 4. In respect to 4, I maintain a bank account in the country that my sister resides in. My sister has helped manage the account in my absence and the address on file is her home address. Can I provide statements or any other documentation related to this account as documentary evidence?
