No Work Permit Required for Foreign Spouses of Mauritian Citizens Employed Prior to 8 March 2019
An amendment to the Non-Citizen (Employment Restrictions) Exemptions Regulations, published through GN 55 of 2019, removed foreign spouses of Mauritian citizens from the category of non-citizens who were exempted from the requirement of a work permit for working in Mauritius. All foreign spouses of Mauritian citizens were therefore under an obligation to hold a valid work permit to be entitled to work lawfully in Mauritius.
However, following representations made to the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training, these amendments have been repealed and replaced by amendments published in GN 68 of 2019, which are effective from 15 April 2019 (the “New Amendments”).
The practical effect of the New Amendments, as explained in aCommunique of the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training, is that:
The Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training has indicated that it will shortly issue guidelines for applications for work permits.
- Wages and Hours in Panamanian Labor Law
- DIFC Workplace Savings Scheme (with effect from 1 February 2020)
- Weekly Rest Requirements for Employees in Israel
- H-1B Visa Filing Season: New Registration Process Begins March 1
