The Ministry of Food and Agriculture, and Immigration hereby notifies the public, and especially visitors holding temporary immigration status through visitors' extensions and permits, that the issuance of extensions is suspended until further notice due to the current restrictions on movement as a result of COVID-19.

Persons are reminded that this measure is being taken, not as a write-off or forgiveness of required fees, but to assist in ensuring the safety of immigration officers as well as visitors, while also encouraging observance of the restrictions of the state of emergency.

Therefore, once the state of emergency has been lifted, ALL outstanding immigration fees will be due and payable, and individuals may then update their immigration status.
