KATHMANDU: The Department of Foreign Employment (DoFE), Kathmandu, will issue labour re-permit online to aspiring Nepali migrant workers from Sunday.

The DoFE, which had been issuing the labour permit through the medium of physical presence and online, is going to issue re-permit online.

Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security, Krishna Kumar Shrestha, said that the arrangement made for labour re-permit online has ended the compulsion of Nepali workers, who have returned their homes from foreign employment, to wait in line for hours at the Department of Foreign Employment to get their labour permit again.

Secretary at the Ministry, Ek Narayan Aryal, said that the government would make this arrangement in order to provide service in an easy and smooth manner making labour permit ‘paperless’.

Similarly, Chief Ramesh Aryal shared that activities related to labour re-permit are going to be carried only online to provide services in an easy, smooth, fast and transparent manner making the labour permit ‘faceless, paperless and cashless’.

Following the directive of the Labour Ministry to provide services to Nepali migrant workers in an easy and smooth manner using modern technology, the Department of Foreign Employment is going to issue labour re-permit through online, he added.
