channel for the latest updates.PUTRAJAYA, Oct 26 — Employers who are interested in hiring foreign workers will have to bear all the costs involved in bringing them into Malaysia, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.“The costs include levy payment and the cost of quarantine on arrival at the country’s entry point,” he told a press conference after the Joint Meeting between the Home Minister and the Minister of Human Resources on the Management of Foreign Workers, here today.

He said foreign workers are required to undergo a mandatory quarantine period of seven days at a government-certified quarantine centres and they could only enter via the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), klia2 as well as Sabah and Sarawak entry points which have been set and would be announced later.

On October 22, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the Covid-19 Pandemic Management Special Committee which he chaired had approved the standard operating procedures (SOP) for the entry of foreign workers to meet the needs of the plantation sector and subsequently, other sectors. headtopics.com

The SOP for foreign worker entry will cover four stages, namely pre-departure, arrival, post-arrival (quarantine period) and post-quarantine.On the Return Recalibration Programme, Hamzah said 147,705 illegal immigrants had registered for the programme as of October 21, and so far 124,423 had returned to their country of origin.

“The government has generated RM71 million through the compounds collected,” he said adding that special counters were opened to facilitate their return via several exit points namely KLIA, klia2, Stulang Laut and Pasir Gudang in Johor.As for the Labour Recalibration Programme, 212,926 illegal immigrants had registered to allow them to be legalised as foreign workers and so far 34,318 were successful while another 20,889 failed.

“A total of 157,719 illegal immigrants have yet to go through the verification process at the Immigration Department. Those who fail to meet the requirements will automatically be sent home through the Return Recalibration Programme,” he said.Hamzah said one of the reasons for failure under the Workforce Recalibration Programme was the age limit factor as those who wish to work in Malaysia must be below 45 and they are allowed to work until the age of 55.

He said under the Labour Recalibration Programme, RM106 million had been collected as of October 20, with revenue collection at RM4.15 million which included recalibration fees, levy payments, work pass and visa processing fees.The highest number of registrations came from the construction sector with 122,075 applications, followed by the manufacturing sector (65,484), and agriculture (12,003). headtopics.com
