Government to facilitate work permits for Haitian and Dominican Republic residents

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has announced that his government will put a task force in place to facilitate the approval of work permits for Haitian nationals and citizens from the Dominican Republic residing in Dominica.

He made the announcement while addressing a press briefing on Thursday.

In recent times a number of Haitian nationals living in Dominica have raised concerns over the delay of work permits.

“We are going to put a more robust and transparent process in place to facilitate the approvals of the work permits so that I will put in a task force to review the applications that are outstanding and to quickly address the issue of work permits,” he said. “Not only for the Haitians, but also the citizens from the Dominican Republic who are here as well.”
