Changes brought to expat quota policy

Changes have been brought to the policies followed by the Economic Ministry in issuing work quota for foreign expatriates.

An announcement issued by the Economic Ministry said instead of a document stating the site at which the person will be working at, a work site declaration form notarized by a public notary will need to be submitted. Alternatively, the form can be registered at a civil or magistrate court, said the ministry.

The Economic Ministry had previously said that quota will be issued only to those who are registered on the designated job centre portal. Although the changes may cause some difficulties to employers, the changes were being brought to ensure economic benefits and participation, said the ministry.
