Quota on employment of foreigners half full in Azerbaijan

The Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan set a quota for 6,800 foreign migrants in 2019, as stated by Chief of Azerbaijan's State Migration Service Vusal Huseynov.

According to him, applications for more than half of the quota for obtaining a work permit have already been accepted.

Huseynov added that the fee for a work permit may vary depending on its duration. He recalled that the state fee for obtaining a six-month work permit is 500 manats, while obtaining an annual permit costs 1,000 manats.

Huseynov stressed that persons who have a permit for permanent residence, or who are married to a citizen of Azerbaijan, are exempted from obtaining the work permit.
