Employment and Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi released the National Labour Migration Policy (NLMP) and Employment Services Amendment Bill for public comment today, 28 February 2022. The NLMP will introduce quotas on the total number of documented foreign nationals with work visas that can be employed in agriculture, hospitality and tourism, as well as construction, along with other sectors. The Minister of Labour will set the limit on foreign nationals, and the quotas will differ per occupation, sector or region. The proposed new legislations will be accompanied by amendments to the Small Business Act, which will limit foreign nationals from establishing small and medium-sized enterprises and trading in some sectors of the economy. This will include a list of sectors where foreign nationals cannot be allocated business visas.
