The foreign employee quota application for 2018 must be submitted to the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (“MLVT”) by 30 November 2017, failing which, organizations will not be able to hire or obtain work permits for foreign employees in 2018.
This obligation applies to every employer in Cambodia, including representative offices, branches, limited liability companies and NGOs. Failure to apply before the deadline will result in fines being imposed by the labour authority and/or other relevant authorities in Cambodia. In serious circumstances, imprisonment for up to three months and/or deportation orders may be imposed upon the foreign employee concerned.
As it normally takes between 2-4 weeks to obtain approval of these applications from the MLVT, we recommend that the application be filed as soon as possible.
Please contact us or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any further questions regarding this reminder alert. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
