AKIPRESS.COM - Mongolia will not put a cap on immigration in 2018, authorities said on Tuesday, after lawmakers rejected new policy proposals that set to put tough restrictions on the numbers of foreign workers in the remote north Asian nation, Reuters reported.
Some members of Mongolia’s parliament sought to limit the number of new resident permits granted to foreign or stateless people to 100 per year in a bid to protect domestic jobs in the resource-rich country.
But the proposal has been rejected, and the existing system of quotas on specific business sectors will continue, an official with the immigration authority said.
“We don’t have a national quota for 2018,” the official said.
