Conditions or responsibilities to be established in the employment permit for non-resident workers
update on 21/09/2010

As the Administrative Regulation No. 13/2010《Regulation of the conditions or responsibilities to be established in the employment permit for non-resident workers》has been effective on 31/7/2010, our Office (GRH) would like to remind all enterprises which have been authorized to employ non-resident workers, should obey and maintain the minimum number of resident workers regulated in the employment permit; should the enterprise reduces the number of workers due to a change in the volume of work, it must notify our Office within 15 days. Upon such notification, our Office will re-evaluate the number of non-resident workers authorized. Our Office has prepared reference templates for both extension application and reduction notification.

  1. Guarantee that the minimum number of resident workers has been employed

    According to the Administrative Regulation No. 13/2010, Article No.3, Paragraph 2, should the employer be unable to guarantee the employment of the minimum number of resident workers required due to the termination of a labor relation, the employer must, within 15 days, from the occurrence of such fact, take all necessary measures to ensure that the minimum number of resident workers is employed. In addition, according to Paragraph 3 & 4 of the same Article, if, after taking all necessary measures, the employer still cannot employ the minimum number of resident workers as required, then the employer must, within 5 days after the end of the aforementioned period apply for an extension from GRH through a written and justified request. GRH will reply with a decision and notify the applicant (the enterprise) within 15 days upon the reception of the application.

    Should the employer fail to observe the provisions of the above article, the employment permit for non-resident workers thereof maybe partially or entirely revoked.

  2. Re-evaluation system for the number of non-resident workers to be employed

    According to Administrative Regulation No. 13/2010, Article No.4, Paragraph 1 & 2, any employer who, having employed resident and non-resident workers to carry out the same professional activity, reduces the number of such workers due to a change in the volume of work, must notify the GRH within 15 days. GRH will re-evaluate the number of non-resident workers authorized and inform the enterprise of the result within 15 days.

    Should the employer fail to notify according to the above article, the employment permit for non-resident workers thereof maybe partially or entirely revoked.

  3. Reference templates and submission methods

    Templates for 1) Application for deadline extension of employment for the minimum required number of resident workers and 2) Notification of reduction in the number of workers can be downloaded at our website www.grh.gov.mo and the Non-Resident Workers Portal www.tnr.gov.mo or obtained at our Office.

    The above application and notification may be submitted in person at our office, Avenida do Dr. Rodrigo Rodrigues, NO. 614A~640, Long Cheng Building, Floor 9 ~ 11, Macao (entrance of Rua de Goa) or by mail. Should the applicant choose to submit via email info@grh.gov.mo or fax 28711224, please submit the original copy back to our Office.
