Officials are revising the requirements for foreign experts and technical workers, as well as designating the Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs and the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs as the sole authorities for approving foreign labor permits.
BAL Analysis: Proof of a labor market test is being introduced as a new requirement when recruiting for foreign labor. Employers should be aware of the job posting requirement and consider the process in their 2024 employment strategies.
