This is to notify the general public that the LabourNet has been revamped and renamed as Foreign Workers Management System (FWMS). The system is designed to integrate various services related to Foreign Workers (FWs) and streamline the work permit approval process. The new system will be operated with effect from 6 June, 2022 by 9:00 AM and the old LaboutNet System will be disabled with effect from 31 May, 2022 by 5.00 PM.
Therefore, the employers seeking for foreign workers will not be able to apply between 1-5 June, 2022 during which both the Department of Labour (DoL) and the Department of Immigration (DoI) will be clearing the backlog applications. The renewal applications which are due between 1-5 June, 2022 must apply before 31 May, 2022 and failing to do so will be charged an overstay fine as per the DoI rules.
