Labour re-permit to be issued online from Sunday
KATHMANDU, Jan 15: The Department of Foreign Employment, Kathmandu, is preparing to issue labour re-permit online to aspiring Nepali migrant workers from Sunday.
The Department, which had been issuing the labour permit through both medium—physical presence and online, is going to issue re-permit only online.

Secretary at the Ministry, Ek Narayan Aryal, said that the government would make this arrangement in order to provide service in an easy and smooth manner making labour permits 'paperless'.
Similarly, Chief Ramesh Aryal shared that activities related to labour re-permit are going to be carried only online to provide services in an easy, smooth, fast and transparent manner making the labour permit 'faceless, paperless and cashless.
Following the directive of the Labour Ministry to provide services to Nepali migrant workers in an easy and smooth manner using modern technology, the Department of Foreign Employment is going to issue labour re-permit online, he added.
