Group visas in one week's time from November 15

posted on 02/11/2003: 956 views

The current average period of six weeks required to process group employment visa applications at the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs will be reduced to one week with the introduction of an electronic system for processing of group visas by the middle of this month, according to a senior official. The new system was originally planned for launch on October 15, but it was subjected to few changes. A meeting will be held this week to approve the final proposal of the project in preparation for its implementation on November 15, Ahmed Khajoor, the Ministry's Assistant Under-Secretary for Planning, said, according to the ‘Khaleej Times.'

Another advantage of automating the processing of group employment visas is the ability of the new system to plug the loopholes in the manual processing system now in practice. It will also enhance the level of performance of the staff and eliminate the chances of misplacing applications and streamline the system. Under the new system, applications for group employment visas will be entered into the computer system and will be processed electronically without being passed from one ministry's staff to another and one department to another before it finally lands at the undersecretary's and the minister's office for final approval.
