The government is removing the costly and time-consuming practice of requiring certain people to obtain employment visas so long as their work or residence permit has already been approved.

“The Ministry and the Immigration Board have reviewed the current practice and decided that the employment visa was not necessary for the proper administration of the immigration system,” said Clara Gardiner, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Border Control and Labour, in a Dec. 16 press release.

“We are keen to make the procedures less burdensome on the people seeking permits or trying to have them endorsed, even while we seek to protect the integrity of the system,” she said. “This new approach meets the requirements of the law.”

The procedures for obtaining the permits or endorsements are now covered under the assessment carried out by the Immigration Board.

The change took effect from the Immigration Board’s meeting in October.
