The Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MADLSA) has announced the launch of two new online services, as of Sunday, on its website.
The two new services are – Requesting a work permit (issuance of a work card) for those who are on the residency of their relatives, and
Changing the profession, which benefits residents who wish to have a new work permit or renew, cancel or get a replacement for a lost one.
This step comes within the framework of the ministry’s keenness to provide its services online to facilitate processing and following up the services remotely. The importance of offering a work permit application service (issuing a work card) is providing a digital alternative that facilitates the application process electronically, especially if the person concerned is not brought by the employer and wants to contract with it for regular and main professions with the attachment of supporting documents, especially for sub-professions in accordance with the terms and conditions. The applicant for changing the profession (or changing the job title) in the resident’s ID card can also do so either from the party concerned or the authorised signatory with attaching the required documents.
The introduction of two services is considered to be a continuation of the ministry’s plan to provide various online services to individuals and companies to facilitate the use of various services, in the implementation of the ministry’s plan to provide digital alternatives to the public without the need to visit government services complexes, including the service (digital certification of multilingual work contract) announced in June.
The ministry has prepared an online directory that the person concerned or the employer can refer to via the website or through the ministry’s social media platforms to learn about service requirements, terms, conditions, and procedure.
