The new system is designed to ensure uniformity and streamline the issuing of worker entry permits, registration cards, and renewed work permits for foreign workers.

The new system will make government services in this area of work more efficient and accurate, said the report.

The relevant sectors have been urged to jointly address the problem of undocumented workers and ensure that all foreign workers are registered.

The ministry is urgently seeking to resolve labor-related issues by coordinating with relevant sectors at both central and local levels to ensure they carry out their roles effectively.
