RTK 2.0 Sarawak registration is extended until June 30

KUCHING: The period for the registration of foreign immigrants by employers for the Sarawak Workforce Recalibration 2.0 (RTK 2.0) program has been extended until June 30, said the Deputy Minister Labour and Immigration Datuk Gerawat Gala.

In his statement today, he informed that the verification period and issuance of Temporary Work Visit Passes have also been extended, until Sept 30 and Dec 31, respectively.

“The extension of this period is in line with the decision of the Joint Committee Meeting between the Minister of Home Affairs and the Minister of Human Resources on the Management of Foreign Workers,” he said.

Following the decision, Gerawat advised employers to take the opportunity to register existing foreigners in Sarawak who work in legally involved sectors to avoid enforcement action.

“However, the application is subject to the eligibility conditions set in this program,” he said.

Previously, registration for Sarawak’s RTK 2.0 program reportedly ended on Dec 31 last year.
