The Employment Permits Section of my Department inform me that on 29th July 2019, an application for a General Employment Permit was received in respect of the named individual.

On 27 August 2019, this application was refused as the it did not satisfy the qualification criteria. The decision to refuse the application, along with the refusal reasons, issued to both parties in writing.  They were also informed that the applicant had 28 days to request a review of this decision. My officials inform me that to-date, no such review has been requested.

A refusal to grant an employment permit does not preclude an applicant from submitting another application for an employment permit.  Such an application should comply with all of the legislative requirements for the particular employment permit type.
