KUALA LUMPUR: Employers of foreign workers can pay their workers' health examination fees online via the Foreign Workers Medical Examination Monitoring Agency (Fomema) employers' portal from Wednesday.
Its chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Hatar Ismail said the facility was introduced to enable employers to conduct their businesses faster and more efficiently via the portal at https://portal.fomema.my/.
"With the Internet and a scanner to scan the relevant documents, the conventional process of registration currently being conducted at Fomema branches nationwide is no longer required. All employers have to do now is to open an account, get a user identity and password and register their foreign workers online via Financial Process Exchange (FPX)," said Mohd Hatar.
Mohd Hatar said in a statement on Wednesday that FPX is a payment channel that is linked to 15 participating banks.
He said after the employers opened their accounts, the accounts would be processed and the status of the registration would be conveyed to the employers through e-mail within two working days.
He said the existing registration method was being continued at all Fomema branches to accommodate employers who did not have Internet access. - Bernama
