IMMIGRATION Department personnel on Monday issued special passes to two foreign women who were caught working as waitresses at an eatery in Mukim Gadong. Their passports were detained for misusing their immigration passes. Their employer was also issued with a calling letter.
The Immigration Department reminded employers to ensure that their employees’ immigration passes are valid as it is an offence for them to work with expired passes. If any foreign worker is caught with expired immigration passes, he/she will be deported and blacklisted. Employers are also urged to know their employees’ whereabouts.
The department is also advising foreign nationals not to abuse their visitors pass by engaging in other jobs as it is an offence.
The Immigration Department also reminded employers and foreign workers to adhere to the rules and regulations, warning that they would continue conducting random checks.
The department added that it welcomes public tip-offs on immigration violations and that the information would be kept confidential.
The public can contact the department at 8753888 or 8734888.
