THE government has reduced security deposit rates for bringing in foreign workers to Brunei.

The move aims to lessen the financial burden of employers as well as to support the government’s mission to create a pro-business environment and bolster the Labour Department’s efforts in improving the ease of doing business in the country.

The new security deposit rates and other policy decisions will come into force from September 1, 2016.

The decision to ease the foreign worker recruitment policy was announced by Haji Idris bin Haji Ali, Deputy Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), in a press conference held at the Labour Department Headquarters yesterday.
