Also, since it is an automatic extension without the need to submit an application, the permit extension will be updated in the Population and Immigration Authority’s computer system only. And the employment permits will not be sent. A sweeping extension according to this announcement will not apply to farmers for whom an individual decision was made after a hearing to cancel/not extend the employment permit according to Section 22 of the Foreign Workers Law, 1991. An updated announcement regarding the allocation of permits for the year 13.1 will be published later.”
