PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Employers Federation has lauded the move by the Immigration Department to implement an online application system for a hassle-free way to get approvals for foreign workers. 

Its executive-director Shamsuddin Bardan said many members of the federation had complained of the time-consuming process to get approval for foreign workers. 

With the online system, he said employers could look forward to hassle-free applications.  

“We have many members complaining about the long queues at the Immigration Department and many have to queue up early. The current process is very time consuming,” he said in a telephone interview yesterday. 

Shamsuddin was commenting on the department’s Electronic Application System for employers to sign up and be linked to the department for easy and hassle-free applications. 

He said if the online system was implemented efficiently, many employers could do without the help of a third party, adding that this would cut costs for employers and save time.
