All application forms must now be completed online. A tracking number is provided and notifications of approval, rejection or completion are sent by email.

The processing time for work permit approvals has already been reduced to two to three weeks, although this may change in the coming weeks.

Applications still have to be submitted manually at Ministry of Labour with original forms and all required documents.

Applications still need to have original certified signatures.
