APPLICATIONS FOR INDIVIDUAL WORK PERMITS TO BE COMPLETED ONLY ON TTBIZLINK
20 June, 2018
The Ministry of National Security and the Ministry of Trade and Industry recently marked an important milestone with the announcement that all applications and extensions for Individual Work Permits will now be done online via TTBizLink at www.ttbizlink.gov.tt. This achievement signals a significant step forward for the Ministry of National Security and will result in a greatly enhanced application and processing experience and ultimately, more timely receipt of Individual Work Permits.
This accomplishment is the result of a period of close, collaborative partnership between the Work Permit Secretariat, Ministry of National Security and the TTBizLink Unit, Ministry of Trade and Industry. During this time, a concerted effort was made to refine the e-Work Permit Module on TTBizLink so that the user experience, both on the part of the applicant and the approver, would be more streamlined and efficient. In doing so, feedback from all stakeholders was carefully considered to ensure that all refinements would be value adding.
The e-Work Permit Module was launched on March 1, 2012 and since that time to now, eight hundred and forty five (845) companies and businesses have registered to access this Module. It is anticipated that this number will significantly increase given the full transition of the Individual Work Permits application system. Having realized this milestone, focus is now being placed on working toward the full transition to TTBizLink of Group Work Permits applications.
