Plans to only issue work visas to foreign workers with expatriate insurance in the Maldives have been postponed from their starting date of January 1st 2011.
According to Haveeru newspaper, the Department of Immigration and Emigration pushed back proposals to make sure all expat workers are covered by international health insurance because of a number of requests.
However, immigration controller Ilyas Hussein Ibrahim told the publication that employees applying for their work visa for the first time are still required to have insurance.
The department announced on December 29th that foreigners already working in the Maldives will not be required to have cover by March 2011.
"Because of the announcement, many people have begun insuring. It is something that must be done in the future. But right now only the new foreign workers are required to insure," Mr Ibrahim clarified.
Policies to determine whether expat workers hold adequate insurance cover have not yet been decided on, he added.
