Notice on Relaxation of Certain Criteria on Employment of Foreign Workers

Dear esteemed MFC members,

For your information, the government has agreed to relax certain criteria on the employment of foreign workers to soothe the manpower shortage across several critical sectors including manufacturing.

Among the main criteria for this relaxation are:

1) Employers are required to fill in their application once more at the FWCMS system at under the ‘Modul FWe Approval’, effective immediately.

2) Ministry of Human Resources (MOHR) will then process and give the approval within three (3) working days from the date of application. The advertisement requirement on myFutureJob Portal is exempted effective immediately.

3) Employers whom have applied prior to January 17, 2023 are required to make a new application again through the Modul FWe Approval.

4) After obtaining approval by the MOHR, employers are then required to make their levy payment at the Immigration Department alongside the other procedures (view KDN press release).

NOTE: Please be reminded that after the issuance of the PLKS working pass, employers have six (6) months to comply to the pre-requirements such as the adherence of the labour law, quota criteria under MOHR as well as the minimum employment requirements under the enforcement agencies as inspections WILL BE conducted by the government.

For further enquiries and details please view the attachment provided or contact Bahagian Pengurusan Migran (MOHR) at 03- 8885 2939/ 2940 or Bahagian Komunikasi Korporat (KDN) at 03- 8886 8451/ 3406/ 8035.

Thank You
