Overseas employment agencies are no longer required to pay the government for each person they serve starting from November 19, announced Myo Aung, director-general of Department of Labour.
Overseas job services providers used to pay 100 Foreign Exchange Certificate (FEC), the country’s second currency circulated in place of the US dollars, for each worker they sent abroad.
The government has waived the charges in a bid to cut the cost for those who seek to work overseas, Myo Aung said.
Previously labour registration card was issued for one to work abroad, only after the due FEC100 had been paid.
The withdrawal of FEC100 payment was earlier promised by Maung Myint, minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security on October 22.
