September 17: Nepal’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur will begin attestation of demand documents for Nepali workers in Malaysia from today (September 17).
The embassy has decided to attest the demand documents following the implementation of the Labour Pact signed between Nepal and Malaysia on October 29, 2018, from this Sunday.
Bimal Dhakal, immediate past president of Nepal Association of Foreign Employment Agencies, informed that the demand attestation will begin from Tuesday.
After attestation of the demand documents, they will be forwarded to the authorised manpower companies in Nepal. Then the workers will be sent to Malaysia as per the criteria set by the Labour Pact.
The embassy has issued a notice on its website addressed to Malaysian companies and individuals who have valid approvals from the concerned authorities of Malaysia for recruiting foreign workers to contact the embassy for attestation of workers demand documents.
“For the sake of clarity and transparency in the manpower deals, the employers are encouraged to place demand directly with the licensed manpower agencies in Nepal without using any service of the agents,” the notice says.
The recruitment process will begin only after the embassy attests the demand documents.
