IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? A strike by government employees at several ministries is causing delays in visa processing and other immigration-related matters. The strike currently includes employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (which includes the Immigration Department), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Social Security.
What does the change mean? Although applications continue to be processed, employers and individuals should expect delays when applying for a visa, obtaining a CUIL (social security) number and other procedures.
Background: Government employees began labor stoppages Monday to protest the dismissal of thousands of state workers when new officials took office.
BAL Analysis: Although the strike is expected to end soon, employers should note that government services are affected and delays may continue even after employees resume work.
