Reply To: Work permit 2017
Hi Antonette, are you the only foreign teacher at your school? If not, they should have registered with the ministry of labor long time ago and it’s not a good sign that they haven’t taken care of this yet. An application for a “foreign quota approval” must be submitted by the school before any of their foreign staff can apply for a work permit. It’s the school’s responsibility. If you can’t wait for the school to get their things in order, then maybe you can try to apply as self-employed? I don’t know how strict the MOL is these days, but that used to work for some people i know before their employer applied for the quota approval.
Btw, I assume that the urgent need for a work permit is because you need to renew your business visa?
