The Maldives government has lifted the ban on hiring unskilled workers from Bangladesh.

Maldives’ Ministry of Homeland Security and Technology said in a statement on Sunday that unskilled workers from Bangladesh have employment opportunities in the country.

In this regard, Md Sohel Parvez, Counsellor (Labour) and High Commissioner, Embassy of Bangladesh in the Maldives, said that the decision to reopen the labour market for Bangladeshis in the Maldives is very positive.

Mission details will be announced at a later date. Everything will be done according to the correct rules, he added.


The official added that new visas will be introduced and at the same time, those who are not documented will also need to be legalized. “If the employer wants, he can apply for a work permit for Bangladeshis in the expatriate system. Everyone should be aware of the visa issues. You can’t fall into the trap of a broker.”

In September 2019, Maldives imposed a ban on recruiting unskilled workers from Bangladesh.

Despite the then economic minister of Maldives Fayyaz Ismail saying the ban was for a year, the ban was later extended.
