Economic Ministry has included additional measures to be completed before a foreigner can be brought to the Maldives for work.
The ministry made the decision following the Maldives Immigration decision which states that a migrant worker can only enter the country only after obtaining a special permit from the ministry under the employment approval rules. This affects employees who had departed from the country for holidays as well.
The employee must submit a form to the ministry 48 hours before arriving in the country.
This permit is in addition to the employment approval during the declared public health emergency in the country.
