We would like to notify the general public that hereafter, the enabling of foreign workers work permit will be discontinued. The employers who failed to renew the work permit will be required to deport repatriate the foreign workers to their country of origin after paying the over–stay penalty to the Department of Immigration. This decision is taken jointly by the Department of Immigration and the Department of Labour in view of the opening of the international borders.
Therefore, we would remind the general public to apply for renewal of work permits 14 days before the expiry.
This notification will be enforced with effect from 15th December 2022.
