Enjoy the advantages of the e-Work Permit electronic form
Advantages of the electronic form
The application is entered step by step and you do not have to think about what type of residence permit is needed.
- More comfortable
If you need to apply for the same company or person more than once, you don’t have to re-enter the data.
- Easier to manage
All applications can be viewed at once; this lets you trace the application's progress.
- More capacity
Attachments of up to 10 MB can be uploaded and sent in.
You can stop at any time and resume filling out the form later.
Before you finally click the mouse to send in the form, you can review the completed application on the screen. The form can be saved, printed and revised, or deleted. The electronic form should only be used if all documents are submitted electronically.
Concerns and questions
If delays occur during the processing of your online application or if other problems arise, please contact the Office for Economy and Labour (AWA). As a rule online applications are dealt with within a few working days. You can trace the progress of your application online.
Each application is dealt with by a specific member of staff. If you have any questions you are able to contact this member of staff directly. If you have any further concerns or questions, the management of the Work Permits Unit is also at your disposal.
