The Ministry of Labor has announced the launch of its official website, www.workpermit-liberia.com, dedicated to enhancing the process of obtaining digitized alien work permits.
This initiative marks a significant step forward in simplifying and modernizing the work permit application process for foreign workers in both the formal and informal sectors of the Republic of Liberia.
As part of our commitment to efficiency and accessibility, the Ministry of Labour invites all foreign workers in Liberia to utilize this user-friendly platform for the unified application of their work permits.
No longer will applicants need to navigate complicated bureaucracy or stand in long lines; instead, they can conveniently submit their applications online through our official website.
Furthermore, this digital transformation extends to employers and individuals seeking to import foreign labor into Liberia. Companies or individuals interested in hiring foreign workers can now submit their completed work permit applications and all necessary supporting documents directly through the Ministry of Labour’s website. This online submission process ensures a swift and hassle-free experience while guaranteeing that foreign workers are fully compliant with Liberian labor laws.
To accommodate those who may prefer in-person assistance or have specific inquiries, the Ministry of Labour Head Office, located at the Ministerial Complex in Congo Town, welcomes visitors during business hours from Mondays through Fridays, 8 AM to 4 PM. Our dedicated staff is available to provide guidance and support for any work permit-related matters.
Joseph Nyandibo, Director of Communications/Public Affairs at the Ministry of Labour, emphasized the Ministry’s dedication to making the work permit application process efficient and accessible for all parties involved.
He stated, “We believe that this digitization initiative of our work permits will not only simplify the procedures, but also contribute to enhancing the transparency and accountability in the issuance of work permits to foreign workers in the labor sector of Liberia. The Ministry of Labour remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting a conducive and decent environment for foreign workers and employers in Liberia.”
In an era where technology drives progress, the Ministry of Labour takes pride in embracing digital solutions to better serve its constituents. The launch of the official website for the issuance of Digitalized Alien Work Permits underscores Liberia’s commitment to welcoming foreign workers while ensuring compliance with national labor regulations.
