Increase In Audits by the Enforcement Unit of the Immigration Authority

 

The Enforcement Unit  of the Immigration Authority has recently increased its audits of employers. The purpose of the audits is to ensure employers comply with the immigration laws and to prevent illegal employment. The audits may be performed without prior notice.  

 

During the audits, passports and other relevant documents are examined. Foreign nationals that are found to be working without the proper visa are subjected to immediate detention and deportation. The employer can be issued high fines and/or criminal indictments.
