Please note the following points with regard to the application for Foreign Workers (FWs) work permits:
- DOL approves the FWs work permits according to the Guideline for Recruitment of Professional/Skilled Foreign Workers during COVID-19 (https://www.molhr.gov.bt/molhr/?p=18758)
- For the Private construction, FWs work permits shall be approved for those construction approvals issued before March 20, 2020. The construction activities that started after March 20, 2020, will not be accorded the FWs work permit approval until further notice. This rule doesn’t apply to the Hydropower Projects. The prioritization is to expedite the completion of the construction activities that had started before the covid-19 pandemic.
