Applications made easy with National Labour Management System

Azlan Othman

The Labour Department of the Ministry of Home Affairs will introduce the National Labour Management System (NLMS) to replace the over-the-counter system to make it easier for the public and employment agencies to submit applications for services such as application for Foreign Worker License (LPA) and Domestic Service License (LDP) online.

The new system will be implemented in phases. Registration into the NLMS System will begin on April 1 for employers holding an LPA and an LPD.

Employers with an LPA or an LPD must register via the website by filling in their smart identification card number, active phone number and e-mail address for contact and verification purposes.

The public and new employers without an LPA or an LPD must also register.

Employers with an LPA or an LPD will be contacted by the Labour Department during office hours for verification.

Application Form Employment Document Concept

Employers are advised to ensure that the Registry of Companies and Business Names registration number, PJB number (LPA or LPD number) and company name are available for reference to facilitate the verification process.

The public or new employers will also be contacted for verification purposes. A link will be e-mailed for them to activate their account and make applications online.

After receiving a call from the department, the employer will receive a link via e-mail to activate the account.

Employers are required to update details as required in the NLMS system.

Employers can only use NLMS to make any application online after the details have been updated and verified by the Labour Department.

The department reminded employers with more than one LPA and appointed Management Cardholders to manage the companies to be registered into the system.

Employers who have yet to appoint a company representative must submit an application to appoint a company representative through NLMS.

Information on the registration procedure is available at the department’s official website.

Special kiosks will be provided at the Labour Department’s lobby for the public to register with help from the department.
