Effective from 1 July 2018, a country-wide list of nearly 40 highly demanding jobs across various industries (including IT, construction, healthcare and transportation) has been adopted, for which it is now easier to obtain a work permit. In the case of these jobs, it is no longer necessary to complete a ‘labour market test’. This is a clearance issued by the employment office confirming the lack of eligible candidates in registers of unemployed persons and it is normally required before a work permit can be obtained.
