The Labour Ministry is advising the public that the submission of applications for work permit exemption is currently on hold.
Authorities informed our news centre that the ministry is working on improving the application process and applicants are therefore asked to refrain from submitting their applications until further notice.
“During this time, the work permit exemption policy will be revised. Further information will be provided to the public once the process for the submission of applications resumes,” a bulletin from the Labour Ministry said.
Some persons who are eligible for work permit exemptions include those who are visiting the territory for short-term engagements such as meetings, business-related functions, sporting events and students attending institutions of learning for short-term training and educational activities.
