ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The Virgin Islands’ (VI) Labour Department, has announced that a new procedure to process ‘Executive Work Permits’ will take effect from Monday, September 3, 2018.

This is according to a press release, issued by the Government Information Service (GIS), on August 17, 2018.

The statement noted that in order to qualify for the Executive Work Permit Programme, a person should be making or expect to make an annual salary of $100,000.00 and above.

The initiative is being facilitated at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour.

Transform Labour

Minister for Natural Resources and Labour, Dr the Honourable Kedrick D. Pickering (R7) said in the statement, “this new process is a part of the Ministry’s overall initiative to transform its Departments in a fashion that allows for better service, and makes up a part of the Labour Department’s transition to electronic processing which will ultimately simplify and shorten the waiting period for processing of work permits, not only for business executives, but for all work permit holders.”

The release noted that the Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour “will continue to do its part to assist the working public and seeks the cooperation of employers to ensure there is a smooth execution of this process.”

    And the poor people who can’t afford to sit there for days will carry own waiting. These guys would still get paid to sit and wait for their stamps yet the people who are earning under 40k or way less a year get their time docked and don’t get paid for sitting in labour and immigration or have to do it on their day off don’t get any love....Make it online for all - with a turn up and stamp one time for both.
