Expedited Processing of Residence Permit Based on Work

Checklist for Expedited Processing for Residence Permit Based on Work

The Directorate of Immigration can, in some cases, expedite processing for residence permits based on work. Please see the checklist for expedited processing and submit it with the application along with any supporting documents.

When an application for a residence permit based on work is submitted, the Directorate of Immigration forwards the application to the Directorate of Labour that issues work permits. A work permit from the Directorate of Labour is required before the Directorate of Immigration issues a residence permit based on work.
