Effective 1 July 2019, Malaysia’s foreign workers replacement system will be reinstated in all sectors, Bernama reported.

According to Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran, this system was suspended in 2017 as “it was an inconvenience to employers who were forced to go through the normal application process and incur further costs to get their replacement workers.”

He shared that with this reinstated system, employers would no longer need to go through a new application process to find a replacement, when a foreign worker they’ve employed has returned home.

Announcing this after a dialogue session with the Perak Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Malaysian Palm Oil Manufacturers Association on Friday (31 May), Minister Kulasegaran said: “The government believes this approach will not involve increasing the number of foreign workers but instead retain the number of foreign workers which has been approved for employers before.”

He also shared the following media statement with more information on his Facebook page:
