Closure Ministry of Manpower (MOM) System July 4 – 6 for maintenance
MOM system closed in preparation of integration with the Director General of Immigration
This morning, July 2, 2018, MOM made an unanticipated announcement, stating the following:
As of July 9, 2018, there will be a new integrated Online System with the Directorate General of Immigration in accordance with Presidential Regulation no. 20 of 2018. In order to prepare for the new Online System, the applications made through the current system (Old System) will immediately be stopped. Applications through the Old System can be submitted until July 3, 2018
Above announcement from MOM has the following implications:
- All applications of RPTKA (expatriate placement plan) and IMTA (work permit) through the current system are still accepted until tomorrow, July 3, 2018.
- From July 4, 2018 until and including July 6, 2018 we cannot submit any applications as both the old and new system are offline
- As of Monday July 9, 2018 the new system is online. As this is a new system and because there will be a backlog in processing of applications, we do expect delays in applications through the new system.
