The Labour Department took to Twitter to announce that it is now accepting work visa applications for employers looking to hire foreign nationals, following the lifting of the international travel ban.
The Department of Employment and Labour took to Twitter on Sunday, 18 October 2020, to announce that South African employers can now apply for work visas from the department. The service was suspended by the department following the National Disaster declaration, which prohibited international travel.
However, with the lifting of the international travel ban, the department has resumed the service. The statement was signed off by the Deputy Director General of Public Service Employment, Sam Morotoba on Tuesday, 13 October 2020. The sign off immediately made the service available for employers, despite the delayed public service announcement.
“Please submit your application at your nearest provincial office (or) Labour Centre of the Department of Labour and Employment,” the notice read. Moreover, it is advised that applicants review the Level 1 restrictions to ensure that their application adheres to the regulations.
See the post below.
