Expatriates in the Maldives are being warned that the government will not provide services to those who do not hold valid work visas.
Immigration controller Ilyas Hussein told Haveeru News Service that services should only be given to those who can produce work visa cards and warned that legal action could be taken against employees who are unable to do so.
"We have issued an announcement [regarding the matter]," he told the news provider.
"Authorities such as banks and post offices should see whether the worker has the work visa card," he said.
"We took this measure to minimise opportunities for illegal workers."
Expatriate workers going to the Maldives must obtain a work permit before entering the country, according to immigration laws, unless they are already married to a Maldivian national who holds a marriage visa from the Department of Immigration and Emigrations.
