The business community is notified that all work permit renewals to be submitted to the Department of Labour and Workforce Development are to be accompanied by the  good standing certifications from the Social Security Board, Inland Revenue Department and National Health Insurance. Certificates of earnings from the Social Security Board and the Inland Revenue Department for the applicable employee seeking a renewal of his or her work permit are also to be presented.

In the event the good standing credentials cannot be presented, employers should attach payment plans that have been set up for their employees’ renewals with any of the relevant agencies in order for their applications to be submitted to the department for further processing. Failure to include the stated documentation using either of the prescribed methods will result in renewal applications not being accepted by the department.
