Technicians hired for 30 days no longer need work permits

first_imgRelatedTechnicians hired for 30 days no longer need work permits Technicians hired for 30 days no longer need work permits LabourJanuary 24, 2011 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Labour and Social Security has removed the work permit requirement for overseas technicians, who are needed to carry out urgent work in the island for a period not exceeding 30 days. “If your machine is down and you need a man from anywhere in the world, you won’t have to wait six weeks anymore to apply and to get medical and police records. In fact, you are authorised to get him by computer – technology can bring him here instantly,” said Minister, Hon. Pearnel Charles. He made the announcement as he addressed a meeting of the board of directors of the Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association (JMA) on January 19 at the organisation’s offices in Kingston. He said that if the services of the technician will be needed for more than 30 days, then a permit will be required. “If you need the person for more than 30 days, you are going to have to apply for a work permit. Now this time, you are permitted to apply for that permit while the person is in Jamaica under normal circumstances you would have to apply while he was at home,” he said. He urged employers not to exploit the system. A work permit is a document bearing a number and photograph that is issued to an expatriate, which authorises that individual to work in Jamaica according to its stipulations, for a specified period of time. Persons seeking to obtain a work permit are required to make an application to the Labour and Social Security Ministry. The Labour Minister, in the meantime, congratulated members of the JMA for their continued investment in the country.
