The Department of Labor and Employment National Capital Region has announced that Alien Employment Permit transactions are suspended through Feb. 29.

Key Points:
  • All transactions, including the filing of AEPs and release of printed AEP cards, are included in the suspension.
  • Processing of the establishment registration for purposes of filing AEPs and related applications is also suspended through Feb. 29.
  • Regular operations are expected to resume on March 1.

Background: DOLE NCR said the suspensions are necessary due to the migration of the Alien Employment Permit Management System to another cloud hosting service provider. DOLE NCR said this step will improve clients’ user experience and strengthen security of all stakeholders’ data.
