Govt formally starts FEIMS

Kathmandu, October 1

The government has formally started the integrated software of Foreign Employment Information Management System (FEIMS) from today.

Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security Gokarna Bista said that the FEIMS was launched to monitor and keep the records of outbound and returnee migrant workers. He also mentioned that due to mismanagement of services being provided to migrant workers, this new software was a must to integrate all systems and statistics related to foreign employment services in the country.

According to the ministry, the system has a software, which can be accessed by all concerned with foreign employment services, including MoLESS, manpower companies, line offices under MoLESS, orientation centres, Department of Passport, Department of Immigration, Department of Consular Services, various government agencies, diplomatic missions and Nepali embassies abroad. However, access will be limited as per requirement of concerned entity.

MoLESS had announced that it would implement FEIMS on September 4.

The system includes information related to visa approval process and details of manpower firms. It also includes all information related to the migrant workers, and details of employers. The employer and other related offices will now just have to enter the migrant’s passport number and all details of the concerned migrant will be displayed on the website.
