News Details

The Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA) has announced the launch of two new online services on its website, as of Sunday, 16 August 2020. 

The two new services are on requesting a work permit (issuance of a work card) for those who are on the residency of their relatives, and changing profession, which benefit 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, make it easy for targeted categories to use these services and facilitate processing and following up on the services remotely.

The importance of offering a work permit application service (issuing a work card) is evident given that it provides a digital alternative that facilitates employer processing the application online. This is particularly because 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 authorized signatory with attaching the required documents.
