Minister for Labor, Employment and Social Security Krishna Kumar Shrestha reaches Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu on Thursday.
KATHMANDU: The labor desk set up at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) by the government has been removed.
The desk set up by the government targeting migrant workers going for foreign employment was removed at the directive of Minister for Labor, Employment and Social Security Krishna Kumar Shrestha.
The desk’s relevancy has ended as the government has been issuing electronic stickers to outbound Nepali migrants, said the Ministry.
As per the process, the foreign job aspirants will receive e-sticker in their cell phone or e-mail. So, they would be able to clear the immigration after presenting the print out of the sticker or showing it on their electronic devices (mobile phones, laptops or tablets) to the authorities.
The removal of the desk followed complaints that the desk troubled Nepali migrants going for foreign jobs in the name of helping them clear the immigration, it has been said.
Minister for Labor, Employment and Social Security Krishna Kumar Shrestha and officials reached the airport Thursday and removed the desk.
With this, now foreign job aspirants can easily get their immigration cleared at the TIA without the need for them to line up hours for the same in the past.
