Overseas Worker Identification Cards can be processed within a day at the office of the Yangon Region Labour Department from 20 March, according to the Department of Labour.
Qualified labourers who intend to seek employment overseas, workers who are back home on leave, and those with permanent residence permits would have to apply for the renewal of OWIC at the Department of Labour (head office). The Department of Labour would take two or three days to scrutinize and approve OWIC following rules and regulations.
Now, commencing on 20 March, applicants are required to apply together with the original documents and a photocopy, as previously specified, to the Department of Labour in Mayangon Township. Applicants may submit their applications in person and can take out the OWIC.
From 1 February 2021 to 28 February 2023, more than 216,000 workers were sent to work in 82 foreign countries with OWIC cards. —TWA/KZW
