Labour permits set to be issued from all provinces

The Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security is set to issue the institutional and individual labour permit from all the seven provinces from January 8.

Earlier, the distribution of labour permits was centralized in Kathmandu.

The Employment Office at Janakpur and Biratnagar will also be issuing the institutional and individual labour permits from January 8, according to Secretary at the Ministry Ek Narayan Aryal.

Aryal, further, stated that the Foreign Employment Office at Pokhara and Butwal have been providing all three types of services, including issuing institutional and individual labour permits and their renewal.

Renewal of labour permit and issuance of individual labour permit has been started from the Labour and Employment Office at Surkhet and Kailali also.

The Ministry issuing a press release has also informed that arrangements have been made for accessing all types of labour permits online. As a service-seeker doesn’t have to be present in person at the Labour Office, it is expected that various hassles will be removed.
