The Labour Ministry has announced increased fees for its work permit programme.



The new fee structure will take effect on Monday 28 April 2008.



The ministry says a non-refundable fee of $14,000 will be charged for each application to grant a work permit.



It will now cost $7,200 dollars to replace a lost, stolen or destroyed work permit identification card.



Work permits, which have been granted for a period of three months, will attract a fee of $27,000 while those between three and six months will cost $54,000.



It will now cost $81,000 for a six to nine months work permit and $108,000 for a permit up to one year.



The ministry says work permits for any period more than one year will attract a fee of $108,000 for the first 12 months and $27,000 dollars for each three-month period thereafter.
