The draft regulations include proposals affecting the applications of work visas, corporate visas and the submissions of skills transfer plans.

According to Marisa Jacobs, Xpatweb director and head of immigration and mobility, the labour department would also like to ensure that locals are learning essential skills from foreign professionals coming into the country.

Let's also make sure that we are upskilling our local workforce.
